Cubs' Addison Russell: Hobbled by ankle injury

Russell is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates due to an ankle injury, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

Russell injured his ankle while rounding second base during Saturday's contest, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. He was able to finish out the game but will get the day off Sunday to rest up. The Cubs return home for their series against the Padres on Monday, but it remains to be seen if Russell will be healthy enough to partake in the series opener. He'll be considered day-to-day for the time being.
