Sun, 17 Aug 2014 00:13:06 -0700

Although the Chicago Cubs have a backlog of shortstops, general manager Jed Hoyer has said he doesn't need to trade any of them. SS Starlin Castro, Javier Baez, Arismendy Alcantara and Addison Russell could all be on the team at the same time if Hoyer finds new positions for three of the players, which he admits may be an option.

Athletics | Addison Russell out at least a month

Wed, 09 Apr 2014 16:10:14 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Addison Russell (hamstring) is dealing Grade 3 hamstring strain and will miss at least a month.

Fantasy Tip: Tough break for one of the A's top prospects. While it was believed there was a chance Russell could come up this summer, you can probably forget about that now. A September call-up is more likely, depending on how he bounces back from this injury.
