James Russell named starter for season finale

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/27/14) The Braves announced that left-hander James Russell will make the start in Sunday's season finale against Philadelphia. Russell owns a 3.19 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP over 53 2/3 innings of relief this season.

Braves acquire Emilio Bonifacio, James Russell from Cubs

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/31/14) The Braves made one move before the trade deadline, acquiring reliever James Russell and infielder Emilio Bonifacio from the Cubs, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Additional details on the trade are not yet available.

Russell has a 3.51 ERA in 33 1/3 innings for the Cubs this season, while Bonifacio was hitting .279/.318/.373 in 276 at-bats for the Cubs.  

James Russell melts down in loss to Cardinals

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/26/14) Cubs reliever James Russell (0-2) took the loss Saturday afternoon at home against the Cardinals.

Russell allowed a run to score on a fielder's choice to Matt Carpenter and a two-run triple to Matt Adams in the seventh inning. He was charged with four runs on two hits and one walk while striking out one in two-thirds of an inning. He owns a 3.77 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP over 31 innings of relief.

Cubs' closer situation gets all the more confusing

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/17/14) Wondering why James Russell got the save in the Cubs' extra-inning win over the Marlins Monday? Yeah, so am I.

Hector Rondon, who has been the closer most of the year, returned from a nine-day absence for an elbow injury with a scoreless inning of relief, allowing one hit and one walk, but the Cubs clearly didn't reserve him for a save situation, as the road team normally would its closer in an extra-inning game.

So then, they must have been reserving Neil Ramirez, right? After all, he got the save opportunities in Rondon's absence and has the more impressive numbers between the two, leading CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman to suggest on Monday's Fantasy Baseball Today that he may be more than just an injury fill-in.

But when the save opportunity came in the bottom of the 13th inning, it wasn't Ramirez who got the call, but Russell. Ramirez was well rested, too, having thrown just 11 pitches Sunday after sitting out Saturday.

Of course, the Cubs have been extra cautious with Ramirez's workload so far, which may be all there is to it. I still think he's the Cubs' reliever to own here, with Rondon a close second. Hopefully, we'll have some clarity soon.

James Russell makes quick work for first save of season

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
