The Cubs have placed shortstop Addison Russell on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right foot. They hope he doesn’t have the strained foot when they come back to get him. “And clean your room, too” said the Cubs.

I dunno. It’s Friday and I didn’t sleep well last night.

Russell is batting .241 with 10 homers and 36 RBIs on the year.  He tweaked the foot a few days ago so the move is retroactive to August 2. Javier Baez will cover short on Russell’s absence.
