Upgrade the middle infield

Addison Russell was also banged up this season. That's likely not the entire reason he was so bad at the plate. Russell is suspended for the season's first 40 games. but the Cubs should cut ties for the entire season. Javier Baez can move over to shortstop but Chicago needs a new second baseman. That's not Ian Happ, nor David Bote or Tommy LaStella. The Cubs should look outside the organization to boost the middle infield.
