Phillies' James Russell: Signs minor league deal with Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James Russell signed a minor league deal with the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday and will receive an invite to major league spring training.

The 29-year-old southpaw had some effective years pitching out of the Cubs' bullpen earlier this decade, but a 5.29 ERA in 34 innings last year led to him being cast aside. He'll offer left-handed reliever depth for the Phillies in 2016.
