Pre-Gamin’: Tigers v. Cubs (7:05 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread


wrigley outfieldHere’s hoping the inclement weather holds off or moves quickly or misses Wrigley.

Jason Hammel starts tonight for the Cubs, and, although he’s had some passable starts since his pre-All-Star break hamstring injury, he has yet to have one where his stuff and command both looked really good throughout his appearance (i.e., how he looked pretty much every start before that injury).

The lineup that faces Anibal Sanchez tonight is pretty much your new base set against righties.
