Drafted in the 6th round (179th overall) by the Chicago White Sox in 2004 (signed for $140,000)
The 6-foot-8, 250-pound Russell is an intimidating presence on the mound. His fastball also can be intimidating when it reaches 95 mph with electric life in the zone, and he works with a free, easy motion. He hasn't had success at the college level because he doesn't throw a quality breaking pitch for strikes consistently. In the absence of injured righthander Marc Cornell, Ohio's ace a year ago, Russell was expected to provide more than a 1-3, 4.75 record this year. Because of his ceiling, he should be drafted in the first three or four rounds.
