Russell Out of NLCS

Cubs starting shortstop Addison Russell is out of the NLCS with a hamstring injury. This is a huge blow to the Cubs as they lose their starting shortstop and their best defensive player.

Expect to see Javier Baez starting at shortstop during the NLCS. Some other possibilities include Tommy La Stella starting at second base with Castro moving to short. Also, Chris Coghlan can start at second with Castro moving to short. John Herrera might take Russell’s roster spot for the NLCS, nothing been confirmed yet.
