Mike Montgomery could get a start, ‘but haven’t nailed it down yet’

Even with Eddie Butler doing an admirable job thus far in the role as the Chicago Cubs’ fifth starter, manager Joe Maddon is keeping his options open.

Addison Russell had a scheduled day off as the Cubs wrapped up their nine-game homestand against the Giants on a sunny Thursday at Wrigley Field. But even if it already hadn’t been determined the 23-year-old shortstop would take a seat on the bench in favor of Javier Baez, manager Joe Maddon would
