The Indians are adding another arm to camp, as the team is bringing in James Russell, a lefty reliever who comes to the team with a non-roster invite to camp.

Russell is 31 years old, his best season in the Majors was 2012, when with the Cubs he went 7-1 with a 3.25 ERA, throwing 69.1 innings.

In his eight-year MLB career he's played six seasons with the Cubs, and one each with the Braves and Phillies. Last season he threw in just seven games with Philadelphia, posting an 18.69 ERA.
