Cubs' Addison Russell: Activated from disabled list

Russell (foot) was activated from the DL on Saturday, Bruce Levine of The Score reports.

Russell will be available off the bench right away Saturday after a six-week absence, and a return to the lineup may not be far off. He has successfully run the bases on a couple occasions recently, but there was a setback along the way in his recovery and the Cubs will likely be proactive and sit Russell at least a couple times per week down the stretch in hopes of avoiding another flareup of his plantar fasciitis.
