Commissioner Rob Manfred announced the suspension Wednesday. It is retroactive to Sept. 21, when Russell was placed on administrative leave, meaning he will miss roughly the first month of 2019. MLB reopened the investigation into Russell when ex-wife Melisa Reidy posted an account of how the shortstop abused her physically and mentally. She also cooperated with investigators, leading to this outcome. – TO
