Cubs infielder Addison Russell has had a rough go of it in 2019, with his job on the line due to domestic violence allegations. Nonetheless, the Cubs insist on having their troubled infielder on the roster. On Sunday night, Dodgers outfielder Joc Pederson got the best of Russell after he threw his bat at least ten yards towards the stands.
After Russell recorded the second out in the top of the fifth between the Cubs and Dodgers at Dodger Stadium, ESPN showed footage of Pederson retrieving the Cub infielder's bat which flew into the Dodger dugout in his recent at-bat. Pederson heaved it back out on the field and then hilariously wrapped it around teammate Alex Verdugo's batting gloves.
The Dodgers are rolling and it seems like they're having a little fun along the way.
