Pre-Gamin’: Mariners v. Cubs (3:05 CT) – Lineup, Broadcast Info, etc.


cubs park shoesAt long last, MIKE OLT! makes his Spring debut at third base. Hopefully he gets some chances early and often, and evaluation may occur without delay.

Today’s game is on CSN, or you can listen at Jeff Samardzija gets the start, and the lineup is mostly regulars once again.

Interestingly, Junior Lake – who’s been out for a little while, playing in minor league games and maybe just getting some rest time (it’s been a rough Spring) – is playing left field today. That’s the first time he’s started out of center field, where Ryan Sweeney will play today. That’s the alignment we expected for them coming into Spring Training, and that might be how things shake out for Opening Day. Until now, Lake had played exclusively in center field.
