CHICAGO — The Chicago Cubs have placed shortstop Addison Russell on the 10-day disabled list because of a strained right foot.
An All-Star last season, Russell is batting .241 with 10 homers and 36 RBIs. The Cubs announced the move before Friday’s game against the NL East-leading Washington Nationals.
Chicago also called up left-handed pitcher Rob Zastryzny from Triple-A Iowa. Zastryzny made one appearance for the Cubs in May and pitched in eight games for them last season.
