BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 Adam Russell is a giant right-hander with mid-90s velocity and respectable groundball rates. Previously successful with the Padres, Russell had his strikeout rates plummet with Tampa Bay, and he looked none the better in the minors. At his best, Russell has the potential to become a set-up man.
2011 Russell started to strike hitters out with his mid-90s fastball in 2009, and he relies heavily on the heater, throwing it 67 percent of the time in his 54 career big-league innings. His command is no better than average, but he has induced plenty of weak contact in the minors to make up for that weakness, and has never exhibited any issues with the long ball. Russell was the key piece in the Jason Bartlett deal with the Rays and will fill one of the many holes that free agency poked in the Tampa Bay bullpen this past winter.
2010 Another White Sock acquired in the Peavy trade, Russell is a mountain of a man who has struggled with his control since being converted from a starter two years ago. Russell has the pitches to be an effective short man, with a 95 mph fastball and plus slider. However, his inability to consistently throw strikes has kept him from breaking through. Some scouts believe Russell's problem stems from changing his arm slot from high three-quarters to almost sidearm, depending on the batter, count, or situation. Regardless, if Russell ever figures it out, the Padres have a potential closer at best, perhaps an effective middle reliever at worst, but with Russell celebrating his 27th birthday not long after the season begins, the time to starting seeing either or anything in between is now.
2009 Like Rodriguez, Russell was a conversion success story in 2008. A massive righty lacking secondary offerings, he was moved to the pen upon arrival in Triple-A and posted a 1.74 ERA in his first 21 games, earning a mid-June call-up. A pair of ugly outings around the All-Star break got him returned to Charlotte, and he struggled again upon his return to the bigs in early August, but his last nine appearances went well enough to keep him in the mix for this year’s pen. Still, his stuff doesn’t match his size, and his low three-quarter delivery leaves him susceptible to lefty hitters.
2008 A 6-foot-8 right-hander who can get up to 95 mph with his fastball, Adam Russell has been hampered as a starter because of his lack of a secondary pitch, but the White Sox have moved him to the pen; the more optimistic people in the front office think he could be ready in that role this year.
2007 Having finished his NCAA ball with a 6.28 intercollegiate ERA, Russell has been a projection pick from the very get-go. He remains very raw, having yet to find a reliable secondary pitch to match his plus fastball that comes straight over the top from his jumbo six-foot-eight-inch frame. The organization likes Russell, and he`s been moved pretty fast, but with that body of his, he looks more like someone who is being groomed for a career in the Arena Football League.

DateQuestionAnswer
2009-08-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do you personally think the White Sox gave up too much for Peavy, contract aside? Richard screams "just a guy." Poreda looks like nothing more than a late-inning reliever. Carter was way too old for his league. And every organization has an Adam Russell. I know Poreda could start, but his avg. fastball was 92.5 *out of then pen* in the majors.
(Scott from Chicago)
I don't think the White Sox gave up that much at all -- it was kind of a quantity over quality deal for me and a great deal for Chicago. (Kevin Goldstein)
