Addison Russell underwent an MRI on his wholesale jerseys right foot Thursday, while the Cubs started to consider their options if the shortstop is sidelined for another extended period. Russell was scratched from a Minor League rehab start with Triple-A Iowa on Wednesday night in Memphis because he experienced pain in his right foot. He returned to Chicago on Thursday to be examined by orthopedic specialist Dr. Stephen Gryzlo. Russell has been sidelined since Aug. 3 with a right foot strain and the Cubs were optimistic he'd return this weekend. He went 1-for-3 with a double Monday for Iowa in his first, and only, rehab game. Javier Baez has taken over as the regular shortstop since Russell was injured, but the latest setback will likely affect who the Cubs add Friday, when Major League teams can expand their rosters. Infielder Mike Freeman, 30, who signed with the Cubs as a free agent Aug. 6 and was playing at Iowa, may be added. He played briefly for the Mariners and the Dodgers this year and was batting .273 in 23 games with Iowa. Javier Baez gets a great jump and breaks for the plate as catcher New England Patriots jerseys Chris Stewart throws down to third, allowing Baez to score easily Manager Joe Maddon said they'll also have veteran Ben Zobrist get some work at shortstop. Maddon was looking forward to having Baez and Russell back in the middle of the infield. "It's very attractive to have Javy at second base," Maddon said. "With a typical Addison at shortstop, when you put Javy at second base, and your defense looks really really good at that point." For now, the Cubs will go with a six-man rotation but it may only last one turn. Jon Lester, on the disabled list since Chicago Cubs jerseys Aug. 18 because of fatigue in his left shoulder, threw 50 pitches in a side session Wednesday. Mike Montgomery, who gave up one run over 13 innings in two starts subbing for Lester, will stay in the rotation and start Sunday's series finale against the Braves. Mike Montgomery puts together a phenomenal start, pitching seven-plus innings of one-run ball while striking out four "If you didn't have a guy who you felt good about doing it with, you wouldn't do it," Maddon said about Montgomery. "We're going to go on a turn-by-turn basis. We have [the rotation] through Monday for now." The Cubs also were waiting for pitching coach Chris Bosio to rejoin the team to make any further plans. Bosio's father died Sunday and he rejoined the team Thursday. Kyle Schwarber attended Indiana but grew up in Ohio, cheering for Ohio State. So, who was he rooting for Thursday night when the two Big Ten New England Patriots jerseys teams met in a college football game? "I'm torn," Schwarber said. He was recruited by OSU to play linebacker, but he was rooting for Indiana. "I'm going around cheering 'Hoosiers' and everything like that, and guys are just looking at me," Schwarber said. On Thursday, Cubs Charities presented the American Red Cross with a $100,000 donation to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey. Proceeds from Wednesday's 50/50 raffle, plus a match from Cubs Charities and a generous player matching contribution, will be donated to the American Red Cross, which will help the agency respond to and help people recover from the disaster.
