James Russell (toe) felt good after throwing 30 pitches of live-action batting practice on Tuesday.
Russell has been struggling with turf toe, but is expected to make his spring debut some time this week. Russell is hopeful that he will be able to start for the Braves. Last season, he 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. Mar 11 - 8:56 AM
