Rays catcher Derek Norris is under investigation by Major League Baseball after his former fiancee said on social media that he had physically and emotionally abused her during their relationship.
MLB spokesman Pat Courtney confirmed to ESPN for a story published early Wednesday that the league is looking into the matter. The Rays released a statement Wednesday, via the Tampa Bay Times, saying they take these allegations very seriously and will fully cooperate with the Commissioner’s Office on this matter.
As part of a lengthy Instagram post Tuesday commemorating her graduation from college, Kristen Eck wrote of falling in love with, getting engaged to, and ultimately leaving the man she thought she was going to marry. While Norris’ name isn’t mentioned, ESPN noted a 2015 interview Eck did with MLB Network in which she is identified as the catcher’s fiancee.
