Braves released LHP James Russell.
By releasing him now, the Braves will only have to pay Russell $606,000 of the $2.425 million he's owed. Still, it's a surprising decision given how steady the southpaw has been the last few seasons. Russell posted a 2.97 ERA and a 42/20 K/BB ratio over 57 2/3 innings while pitching out of the bullpen for the Cubs and Braves. The 29-year-old will catch on elsewhere in short order.
