In a game today that has so far featured homers from Anthony Rizzo, John Andreoli, and Jacob Hannemann, your Spring Training homer leader for the Chicago Cubs didn’t want to get left out of the fun.
That would be Addison Russell, and here’s what he just did:
That dinger was Russell’s fourth of the Spring, giving him the lead on the Cubs (Kris Bryant, Willson Contreras, and Ian Happ each have three). If he kept up this pace in the regular season, he’d hit about 80 homers this year, which would be totally acceptable.
Remember: Russell’s power surge is coming.
