Let me post this in the right place this time: I see that Addison Russell was 0-5 with 2 more K’s last night….if he keeps this up I would think that he’d be a candidate to drop down a level

Yep, he had gone 4 for 7 over a couple games, but now he’s gone 0 for 8 over the last two.

spin it any way that you want, but 21 strikeouts in 46 AB’s doesn’t make for a good stat line…but the season is young, and he’s the youngest player in the California League, so hopefully better days will lie ahead…and I certainly hope that he lives up to his promise and has a successful season
