      By RotoWire Staff

      Russell is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Cardinals. Russell will get a well deserved day off after launching what proved to be the game-winning, three-run homer in Wednesday's division-clinching 5-1 win over the Cardinals. Mike Freeman will start at shortstop and bat eighth in his stead.

    • Cubs' Addison Russell: Launches 12th homer Wednesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Russell went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Cardinals. His seventh-inning shot proved to be not only the game winner but the division winner, as the Cubs clinched the NL Central with the victory. Russell now has 12 homers in just 108 games on the year, but he'll need to stay healthy to take a step forward as a hitter in 2018.

    • Cubs' Addison Russell: Not starting Tuesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Russell is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cardinals. Russell started seven of the last eight games and does not have a great track record against Cardinals starter Carlos Martinez (7-for-26, .604 OPS), so manager Joe Maddon decided it was time for a day off. With Javier Baez also out Tuesday, Mike Freeman will get the start at shortstop.
