Pre-Gamin’: Cubs v. Angels – Lineup, Broadcast Info, etc.


It’s the Angels again today for the Cubs, though this time the Cubs head to Tempe. With just three Spring Training games left, we won’t see any more of the Cubs’ regular starting rotation, as they’ll each work a Minor League game and/or side session to get ready for the season. So, instead, today’s starter is Iowa rotation member Chris Rusin. The 25-year-old control lefty is a theoretical possibility for the back-end of a big league rotation one day, but he’s not one of the Cubs’ top prospects.

Today’s game is a 3:05 CT, and it’s being broadcast on Fox Sports West (so you can catch it on and as audio via

On the positional side, unlike with the starting pitcher, we get a mostly regular lineup, with Blake DeWitt subbing for Bryan LaHair (achey back) and both catchers getting into the game via a DH:


1. David DeJesus, RF

2. Darwin Barney, 2B

3. Starlin Castro, SS

4. Alfonso Soriano, LF

5. Blake DeWitt, 1B

6. Ian Stewart, 3B

7. Marlon Byrd, CF

8. Geovany Soto, DH

9. Steve Clevenger, C
