We received word yesterday that Addison Russell and Jake Arrieta will more than likely be back by next week.
These are huge gets for the Cubs. With some HUGE series coming up we can really use Russell’s glove and Arrieta’s pitching. When Russell comes back I expect to see Baez get moved to second with Russell at short. This will leave Ben Zobrist, Ian Happ, Albert Almora, and Kyle Schwarber battling for a playing spot.
