The Cubs head to Peoria to take on the Seattle Mariners for a 3:05 CT tilt. Travis Wood gets the start – perhaps his last chance to put a stamp on the Spring. So far, he’s done nothing to impress, and few believe he’s got a chance to win a spot in the rotation at this point. That might be true even if he throws four innings of no-hit ball today. He isn’t batting today, which could be a totally meaningless notation. Or not.

The game will be broadcast on (audio) as a freebie, and we’ll get a Game Thread going on the Message Board.

Today’s lineup sees Darwin Barney returning to the lineup (unnervingly in the two-hole (don’t do it, Dale)):

1. David DeJesus, RF

2. Darwin Barney, 2B

3. Starlin Castro, SS

4. Alfonso Soriano, LF

5. Jeff Baker, 3B

6. Marlon Byrd, CF

7. Reed Johnson, DH

8. Joe Mather, 1B

9. Welington Castillo, C
