Our Nightmare is Over (For Now): James Russell Back to the Bullpen

Chicago Cubs News

Though it’s based largely on the upcoming off-day, Paul Sullivan says James Russell is officially out of the rotation, and back in the bullpen. The Cubs will go with a four-man rotation for the time being, but unless they plan to do a true four-man rotation (will never happen), the team will need a fifth starter at some point next week.


Still, it’s nice to be relieved, if only for an evening.
