CHICAGO (AP) Addison Russell's future with the Chicago Cubs is a tentative proposition.

President of baseball operations Theo Epstein says Russell is getting a "conditional second chance" with the Cubs after he was suspended for 40 games last October for violating Major League Baseball's domestic violence policy. Even the slightest misstep likely would mean the end of his time with the team.

"We are going to take it one day at a time," Epstein said Friday on the first day of the Cubs' annual fan convention. "If he continues to meet the high standards we've laid out for him, put the work in, he will be eligible to return to the Cubs after serving his full suspension."
