Cubs signed LHP James Russell to a minor league contract.
Russell, of course, has spent all but half of a season of his career with the Cubs and was released by the Braves last month in a cost-cutting move. He'll report to extended spring training initially before eventually going to Triple-A Iowa. Russell stands a good chance of spending a good portion of 2015 with the big club. Apr 8 - 12:26 PM
