CHICAGO — Two-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer and Gio Gonzalez will miss their scheduled starts for the Washington Nationals against the Chicago Cubs this weekend.

Manager Dusty Baker decided to give Scherzer at least an extra day rather than have him pitch Sunday after the right-hander exited Tuesday’s game against Florida because of neck spasms.

Gonzalez won’t pitch Saturday with his wife expected to give birth to their second child within the next few days. Baker said Edwin Jackson will replace him.

The Nationals also placed left-hander Enny Romero on the 10-day disabled list Friday because of forearm tightness. He left Wednesday’s game against Miami.

CUBS: Shortstop Addison Russell was placed on the 10-day disabled list Friday because of a strained right foot.

An All-Star last season, Russell is batting .241 with 10 homers and 36 RBI. He has 11 errors after committing 14 a year ago. Manager Joe Maddon said the foot has been “bothering him noticeably” in recent days.

“We just thought it was wise to get it settled down right now,” Maddon said. “And that’s what we’re doing.”

Russell also has been bothered at times by shoulder pain. Maddon said the foot problem is unrelated.

Chicago also called up left-handed pitcher Rob Zastryzny from Triple-A Iowa.

INDIANS: Left-hander Boone Logan will likely miss the rest of the season with a torn back muscle.

Logan has decided not to have surgery after consulting with doctors. He was injured throwing a pitch against San Francisco on July 19 and diagnosed with a high grade latissimus strain.

Logan, who is on the 60-day disabled list, is 1-0 with a 4.71 ERA in 38 appearances. He signed a one-year contract with a club option for 2018 in February.

Cleveland’s bullpen has been hit hard by injuries. Left-hander Andrew Miller was placed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday with right knee tendinitis, leaving Manager Terry Francona without the dominant All-Star.
