Phillies signed LHP James Russell to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.
Russell posted a rough 5.29 ERA in 49 relief appearances this past season for the Cubs. He'll try to reestablish himself next spring in Phillies camp with the hope of landing a spot in the bullpen for Opening Day. Signing a minor league deal this early probably means Russell was given some assurances from the Philadelphia front office. The 29-year-old left-hander was very effective for the Cubs and Braves in 2014. Nov 12 - 11:40 AM
