Chicago Cubs 2016 NL Central Championship Gear

goodyear ballparkThe Cubs head out to Goodyear to take on the Reds, and Jason Hammel will make his Cactus League debut. He pitched in a fake-fake game last week, but this is his first time pitching in a mere fake game.

No TV for today’s game, but you can listen on

Emilio Bonifacio gets today’s turn at shortstop, while Logan Watkins gets a start at second base. Mike Olt starts once again at first base, and, although he hasn’t seen time at third, the Cubs sure are getting him a lot of starts lately.

Ryan Kalish in center field is also interesting, though I do still expect him to head to Iowa to start the year. No DH today, so Hammel will probably get an at bat.
