The shortstop position becomes pretty shallow once you get past guys like Correa, Lindor and Seager, so why not take a chance on a high upside player like Russell?
Russell was a highly regarded prospect when he was brought over to the Cubs in a trade that saw Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel get shipped off to the Athletics. Since making it to the majors, he has yet to produce what many thought he would do offensively. Last season there were some off the field issues he was involved with. These off the field incidents may have had something to do with his struggles on the field. As many can tell you baseball can be a very mental game, so players can sometimes struggle when things are going on off the field. Now all these distractions should be cleared up come 2018, so I will be keeping a close eye on the Cubs young star.
Royals right-hander Jason Hammel finished the 2017 regular season with an 8-13 record, a 5.29 ERA, a 1.43 WHIP and 145 strikeouts across 180 1/3 innings.
Spin: Hammel led the Royals in strikeouts and innings pitched. Within the American League, the righty placed 14th in innings pitched. He thrived during June, going 3-0 with a 2.51 ERA across five starts.
