      By RotoWire Staff

      Russell is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Diamondbacks. Russell has started five of the last six games at shortstop, going just 2-for-17 with a 5:1 K:BB over those contests. Javier Baez will cover shortstop with Russell absent from the lineup.

    • Cubs' Addison Russell: Sits out Tuesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Russell is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Brewers. Russell has struggled since returning from the disabled list at the beginning of September, hitting just .167/.211/.167 across nine games (five starts). He'll head to the bench Tuesday as Javy Baez slides over to cover shortstop, leaving an opening for Tommy La Stella to pick up a start at third base.

    • Cubs' Addison Russell: Picks up start Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Russell is starting at shortstop and batting sixth in Sunday's series finale against the Nationals. The Cubs' addition of Daniel Murphy has pushed Russell into a reserve role, as Javier Baez has shifted over to shortstop most days with Murphy installed at second base. However, Cubs manager Joe Maddon is known for his roster flexibility, so expect Russell to pick up occasional starts the rest of the way. That's the case Sunday, as the 24-year-old enters the lineup with Baez getting the start at third base.

    • Cubs' Addison Russell: Sticks on bench
      By RotoWire Staff

      Russell is out of the lineup Sunday against the Phillies. Though the Cubs reinstated Russell from the 10-day disabled list Saturday, the 24-year-old will find himself on the bench for the second straight game. With Kris Bryant also returning from the DL this weekend and likely to settle into a full-time role at third base, Javier Baez and Daniel Murphy now look like the Cubs' primary middle infielders, which could close Russell's path to steady at-bats.
