Addison Russell: Inks deal in KBO
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell has signed a $530,000 contract with the Kiwoom Heroes of the KBO, Jeeho Yoo of the Yonhap News Agency reports.

Russell's tenure with the Cubs ended this offseason with the team opting to non-tender him after the second baseman was handed a 40-game suspension following an alleged domestic violence incident. He did eventually appear in 82 games for Chicago but managed to hit just .237/.308/.391 and will now head overseas to continue his career.

Addison Russell: Cut loose by Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell was non-tendered by the Cubs on Monday, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The former top prospect peaked with the Cubs in 2016, and has been worth 3.4 fWAR combined over the past three seasons. Given his pedigree and the fact he is still a solid defensive shortstop, Russell could catch on with a non-contending team, but he is a mono-league option at best in fantasy.

Cubs' Addison Russell: Records four hits Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell went 4-for-5 with a run scored in Saturday's 8-6 win over the Cardinals.

Russell hasn't played much in September as he's recovered from a concussion, and he actually doubled his monthly hit total in just this game alone. The 25-year-old started at shortstop with Nico Hoerner playing second. Next season, with a healthy Javier Baez around, one of Hoerner or Russell will likely be squeezed out of regular playing time.

Cubs' Addison Russell: Makes first appearance since concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell (concussion) struck out in a pinch-hit at-bat Tuesday in the Cubs' 9-2 loss to the Pirates.

The appearance was Russell's first since he suffered a concussion back on Sept. 8. While Russell was out, Nico Hoerner filled in as the Cubs' primary shortstop and now looks on track to hold down the fort at the position the rest of the way after finding success at the dish in his first taste of the big leagues. Javier Baez (thumb) had been tracking toward a return to the lineup this week, but the injury is still presenting issues for him in the field and may result in him being limited to a bench role for the Cubs' final five games.

Cubs' Addison Russell: Back from concussion list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell was activated from the 7-day concussion list prior to Thursday's game against the Cardinals, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Russell wasn't expected to be back until Friday, but the Cubs made a last-minute decision to bring him back from the concussion list minutes before Thursday's matchup. He'll be available off the bench and could have a hard time finding playing time moving forward with how well Nico Hoerner has been playing of late.

Cubs' Addison Russell: Could be activated Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell (concussion) could be activated Friday, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Russell is on the verge of returning to action, but he was evaluated prior to Thursday's game, and it was decided that he is not ready just yet. If all checks out Friday, though, he could rejoin the roster for the stretch run.

Cubs' Addison Russell: Takes batting bractice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell (concussion) took batting practice Monday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Russell has been out with a concussion for eight days since getting hit by a pitch in the face. Nico Hoerner has grabbed a hold of the starting shortstop job in the meantime. Russell's timeline remains unclear, though he appears to be making progress in the right direction.

Cubs' Addison Russell: Moves to concussion list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell was placed on the seven-day concussion list Sunday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Russell is confirmed to have a concussion after being hit in the face by a pitch last weekend and remains in the concussion protocol. Nico Hoerner has taken command of the starting job at shortstop with a .417/.481/.750 slash line through his first six games.

September 16, 2019 03:12 PM
Cubs' Addison Russell: Remains out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell (head) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates.

Russell was expected to be re-evaluated Friday, but his status has yet to be officially updated. Nico Hoerner has taken over the starting gig at shortstop with a 1.231 OPS through his first six games.

September 14, 2019 11:08 AM
Cubs' Addison Russell: Still out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell (head) is not in Saturday's lineup against the Pirates.

Even when he's cleared to return, Russell will be occupying a bench role now that rookie Nico Hoerner has taken the shortstop job. Russell is presumably day-to-day and was expected to be re-evaluated Friday.

September 13, 2019 12:40 PM
Cubs' Addison Russell: Remains sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell (head) remains on the bench Friday against the Pirates.

Russell has been out since getting hit in the head by a pitch Sunday. There's no guarantee he'd be starting even if healthy, though, as he owns a poor .692 OPS while rookie Nice Hoerner has managed an .879 OPS over his first four contests. Hoerner starts at shortstop Friday.

September 11, 2019 08:44 PM
Cubs' Addison Russell: Won't return until homestand
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell (head) will be re-evaluated at the start of the Cubs' next homestand, which begins Friday, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.

Russell was hit in the head by a pitch Sunday and will take at least a couple more days before returning to action. Nico Hoerner will continue seeing time at shortstop for the Cubs.

September 11, 2019 06:00 PM
Cubs' Addison Russell: Still out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell (head) is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Padres.

Nico Hoerner may be the starting shortstop job even if Russell were healthy, so his absence from the lineup doesn't necessarily mean he is not available.

September 10, 2019 07:12 PM
Cubs' Addison Russell: Sitting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell (head) remains out of the lineup Tuesday against the Padres.

Russell was hit in the head by a pitch Sunday and underwent testing for a concussion. According to Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times, he remains in the concussion protocol and will be evaluated daily. Russell will sit for the second game in a row Tuesday, with Nico Hoerner getting another start at shortstop.

Cubs' Addison Russell: Remains in concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell (head) isn't starting Monday's game against San Deigo and is still in concussion protocol, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Russell was drilled in the helmet by a pitch during Sunday's series finale against the Brewers, and he's set to meet with San Diego's team doctors later Monday to determine his status moving forward. He'll continue to be considered day-to-day until further notice.

Cubs' Addison Russell: Being evaluated for concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell was diagnosed with a nasal bruise and is under evaluation for concussion-like symptoms, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

He left Sunday's game against the Brewers in the bottom of the third inning after getting hit in the helmet by a pitch. With Javier Baez (thumb) also out of action, the Cubs would have to get a little creative at shortstop if Russell has to miss time.

Cubs' Addison Russell: Exits with apparent head injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell was removed from Sunday's game against the Brewers in the bottom of the third inning with an apparent head injury, Bruce Miles of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.

After he was drilled in the helmet by a pitch in his third-inning plate appearance, Russell was evaluated by team trainers before receiving the green light to stay in the game. He then stole second base and came around to score on a throwing error, but the Cubs still elected to remove him from the contest the next half inning, likely as a precaution. David Bote replaced him at shortstop while Ian Happ came off the bench to man third base.

Cubs' Addison Russell: Pops ninth home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Brewers.

Russell hit his ninth home run of the season in the fifth inning against Milwaukee starter Gio Gonzalez. The 25-year-old infielder could be in line for an expanded role at shortstop with Javier Baez going down due to a hairline fracture in his thumb. Russell has appeared in 456 career games at shortstop, so he should be fairly comfortable at the position.

Cubs' Addison Russell: Late addition to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell is starting at shortstop and hitting seventh Thursday against the Brewers, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.

Russell was originally set to get the day off but was thrust into the starting lineup after Javier Baez was scratched with a thumb injury. Over his past 10 games, Russell is hitting just .211 with 12 strikeouts and one walk.

September 5, 2019 10:56 PM
Cubs' Addison Russell: Sits Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell is not in Thursday's lineup against the Brewers.

Russell had started nine straight games prior to this one but hit just .216 with 11 strikeouts and one walk over that stretch, although he did hit a pair of home runs. Ben Zobrist starts at second base and will lead off.
