The 2019 season has not been kind to Cubs shortstop Addison Russell, though much of it was self-sabotage. He served a suspension for domestic violence and then later was sent to the minors following a series of mental and physical mistakes. He came into Sunday hitting .227/.300/.389 with a negative WAR. He did hit a home run Saturday night, but he also had a critical throwing error in the ninth inning. The runner he let on base scored the walk-off run.
On Sunday, Russell was hit in the head with a pitch. It looks like the ball grazed the helmet and got him in the forehead/eye area and he was holding his eye while laying on the ground.
He stayed in the game, stole a base and came around to score.
