Jeeho Yoo of Yonhap News reports that infielder Addison Russell has signed a one-year, $530,000 contract with the Kiwoom Heroes in the Korea Baseball Organization.

Jeff Passan of ESPN confirms that a contract is being finalized. According to Yoo, Russell still needs to take a pre-signing physical and receive his work permit before arriving in South Korea. Russell was non-tendered by the Cubs back in December after batting just .237/.308/.391 in 241 plate appearances in 2019. He's still only 26 years old and is a former top prospect, but interest was understandably lacking stateside after he served a 40-game domestic violence suspension last year. He'll now try to keep his career alive in the KBO. Russell will replace former major leaguer Taylor Motter on the Heroes' roster. Jun 20 7:52 am (EST)
