Via The Athletic:

Major League Baseball is investigating free agent reliever Sam Dyson for domestic violence, sources tell The Athletic.

Dyson’s ex-girlfriend, Alexis Blackburn, authored two lengthy Instagram posts this week alluding to domestic violence by an unnamed individual, one on her personal account, another on an account she authors in the voice of her cat, Snuckles. A source confirmed to The Athletic that she was writing about Dyson.

Baseball became aware of the situation this week and launched an investigation that will include an interview with Blackburn in the near future, sources said.

Domestic violence allegations against MLB players seems to be on the rise.  That can’t be a good thing for the sport.
