Russell blazing path to majors


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2013) Not many prospects find themselves in major-league camp less than a year after being drafted. It's even more impressive when your a high-school draftee and are just 19 years old, but that's the scenario 2012 first-round pick Addison Russell encounters as he enters his first spring training with the A's. "A lot of things can go a little wrong and all of a sudden they don't look good, they don't play well," A's special advisor Grady Fuson told MLB.com. "They're nervous, sometimes you get a little bad rap. But in this kid's case, let's face it. This kid played for three months and hit three different levels of baseball and not one part of the game really stopped him much, and instructional league was another case of just kind of walking through that whole camp -- practicing well, performing well. He possibly could be a player on the quick come and he's polished enough and poised enough to go through a big league camp and handle it, get exposed to some other people in the organization that haven't been around."
