Cubs' Addison Russell: Strengthened shoulder over offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell added a throwing program this offseason to strengthen his shoulder, the Cubs' official site reports.

Russell battled a sore shoulder at multiple times last season, particularly in May, when he posted a .579 OPS. He attempted to get ahead of the issue by strengthening the shoulder over the offseason. If it worked, it could be a minor boost to Russell's fantasy value, though this could easily be one of the many "best shape of his life" stories which come out this time of year that ultimately have very little effect.

Cubs' Addison Russell: Comes to terms with Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell agreed to a one-year, $3.2 million contract with the Cubs on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Last season was a disappointment for Russell, as he missed time due to foot and shoulder injuries and his rate stats went in the wrong direction. Russell seems likely to return to a regular role in his age-24 season, but he will need to fare better at the plate or else he could be squeezed out of the lineup more than once or twice per week.

Cubs' Addison Russell: Rewarded with day off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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.
