In his only season pitching for the Longhorns, Russell was named to the second team All-Big 12, while posting a 8–4 win–loss record and a 3.86 earned run average (ERA).[1] Professional career Russell was drafted by the Chicago Cubs in the 14th round of the 2007 Major League Baseball Draft.[2] On August 9, Russell signed a contract worth $350,000 with the Cubs.[3] After signing, he was assigned to the Arizona League Cubs, the Rookie-level affiliate of Chicago. However, after just one start in which he only threw two innings, he was called up to the Single-A, Peoria Chiefs. He pitched in two games for the Chiefs, striking out nine batters and allowing just three hits in seven innings.[4] With Peoria, Russell combined to throw a no-hitter on August 25, 2007.[5] To start 2008, Russell joined the High-A Daytona Cubs. On April 26, he earned his first win of the season against the Jupiter Hammerheads.[6] Three days later, he was called up to the Double-A Tennessee Smokies.[7] He would pitch most of the season with the Smokies before being sent back down to the Cubs for the playoffs.[8] Combined, Russell went 6–8 with a 5.44 ERA, and a 1.453 WHIP in 25 starts made.[4] Russell began the 2009 season with Tennessee[9] However, he eventually converted to being a relief pitcher for the Smokies, instead of being a starter.[10][11] After pitching 11 games for the Smokies, Russell was called up to the Triple-A Iowa Cubs. With Iowa, Russell was mainly a reliever, but also made seven starts for the Cubs. Between Tennessee and Iowa, Russell went 5–6 with a 4.03 ERA and a 1.403 WHIP in 37 games, including 12 starts.[4] Following the season, Russell joined the Mesa Solar Sox, a team in the Arizona Fall League, which largely features players considered top prospects.[12] In 2010, Russell made the Cubs Opening Day roster after giving up no runs in 11 innings of work during Spring Training[13] and debuted on opening day, April 5, with two scoreless innings against the Atlanta Braves.[14][15] After making his debut, he became the 97th former Texas Longhorn to make his major league debut. He also helped extend Texas' streak of having a former player debut in the major leagues from eight consecutive seasons to nine.[1] Russell made 20 appearances for the Cubs, going 0–1 with a 4.20 ERA before being optioned to Triple-A Iowa on June 12.[16] However, after making just five appearances for Iowa, Russell was recalled by the Cubs on June 29, after Carlos Zambrano was placed on the restricted list and John Grabow went on the disabled list.[17] He finished the season with a 1–1 record, a 4.96 ERA, and a 1.347 WHIP in 57 appearances for the Cubs.[18] Following the season, the Chicago Tribune stated that the inclusion of Russell and three other inexperienced relievers in the Cubs' bullpen was one of the team's 10 biggest mistakes of the season.[19] Personal He is the son of former Major League pitcher Jeff Russell.[20] See also List of second-generation Major League Baseball players References ^ a b Former Longhorn Russell makes Major League Baseball debut, University of Texas at Austin, April 6, 2010. ^ MLB Draft Tracker, ^ Pitcher Russell signs with Cubs, won't return, Austin American-Statesman, August 9, 2007. ^ a b c James Russell Minors, ^ Chiefs' Struck pitches abbreviated no-no,, May 1, 2010. ^ Hammerheads Struggles Continue,, April 26, 2008. ^ Smokies Make Multiple Roster Changes,, April 29, 2008. ^ Texas Exes headed for minor league posteason, CSTV, September 2, 2008. ^ TN Smokies announce 2009 Opening Day Roster & Activities,, April 6, 2009. ^ Smokies score three in the seventh to win Sunday,, April 26, 2009. ^ Braves & Tennessee Smokies Split Marathon,, May 8, 2009. ^ Cashner, Vitters to play in Fall League,, August 25, 2009. ^ Lilly being readied for return to staff,, March 29, 2010. ^ Colvin makes Cubs' Opening Day roster,, March 28, 2010. ^ Bullpen gets mixed results in opener,, April 5, 2010. ^ Cubs recall right-hander Atkins, USA Today, June 12, 2010. ^ Cubs put Zambrano on restricted list, Grabow out, Associated Press, June 29, 2010. ^ James Russell, ^ Top Cubs mistakes in 2010, Chicago Tribune, September 27, 2010. ^ Russell unlikely member of Cubs’ roster, Chicago Tribune, March 30, 2010.
