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


Today the Chicago Cubs head out to gorgeous Salt River Fields to take on the Arizona Diamondbacks. It’s the second-to-last Spring game of the year for the Cubs, who are a game below .500 right now. To the extent you care about the Spring record, let’s hope for a couple more wins to end the Cactus League schedule.

The game is at 3:10 CT, and is available as a freebie audio broadcast on

Jay Jackson starts for the Cubs, and he’s likely to be a starter at AAA Iowa, in a rotation that will feature Randy Wells, Travis Wood, Casey Coleman and Chris Rusin.

The lineup has the look of an “against lefty-starter” game, which I actually like:

1. Darwin Barney, 2B

2. Reed Johnson, RF

3. Starlin Castro, SS

4. Alfonso Soriano, LF

5. Jeff Baker, 1B

6. Geovany Soto, C

7. Marlon Byrd, CF

8. Joe Mather, 3B

9. Jay Jackson, P
