Addison Russell with a Beautiful Sliding Play Up the Middle (VIDEO)

Chicago Cubs Highlights

Addison Russell hasn’t had as many of these babies this year, but the defense is still top tier. Russell’s 9 DRS are the third most in baseball at any position.

And he may have added to that total in the first inning today with a beautiful sliding play up the middle (full video at MLB.com):

That’s so smooth, and he didn’t have a lot of time to work with there.

Naturally, Russell then lead off the top of the next inning with a triple.

(Where the Cubs stranded him. But still. Nice play and nice triple.)
