    • Cubs' Addison Russell: No timetable for return
      By RotoWire Staff

      Russell has symptoms of plantar fasciitis and does not have a timetable to return, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. While he performed agility drills Tuesday, things do not seem to be improving in a hurry for the young shortstop. He will attempt to use insoles in his cleats to help with the pain as he continues to work on recovering. Javier Baez should continue to be the everyday shortstop in his stead.

    • Russell (foot) was able to do some agility work in the outfield Tuesday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports. It's encouraging to see Russell running around again after he was shut down earlier in August with a right foot strain, but he'll need to demonstrate more progress in the next couple of days to have a realistic chance of returning from the DL over the weekend. While Russell has been sidelined, Javier Baez has taken over as the Cubs' primary shortstop, paving the way for Ben Zobrist, Ian Happ and Tommy La Stella to pick up more reps at the keystone.

    • Cubs' Addison Russell: Hopes for minimal DL stay
      By RotoWire Staff

      Russell (foot) feels better and doesn't anticipate missing more than the minimum 10 days required of a disabled list stint, Bruce Levine of 670TheScore.com reports. This is good news, as the sudden DL stint certainly worried many that there was a more serious injury at hand. Javier Baez should continue to man shortstop while Russell is out of action, but there's a good chance that he could be back in the fray over the weekend.

    • Cubs' Addison Russell: Heading to DL
      By RotoWire Staff

      The Cubs placed Russell on the 10-day disabled list on Friday with a right foot strain, Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune reports. That was quick. The club revealed not long before this placement that Russell, who was looking stellar at the plate in the second half, was dealing with a foot issue. Javier Baez will fill in at shortstop while the incumbent recovers, which could last more than the minimum DL stay.
