Pre-Gamin’: Diamondbacks v. Cubs (1:20 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread


wrigley outfieldKyle Hendricks takes the ball in today’s series finale, going for the sweep. Keep the ball on the ground and let your guys make some plays behind you. That’s the ticket.

Rubby de la Rosa is capable of being very good, and he’s usually around the zone. If you’re going to hurt him, typically you’ve got to do it more with the bat than your own patience.

Javy Baez gets another start, this time at second base. His approach has looked good, and his glove has been great. Hard to take him out of the lineup, even against a righty. Interestingly, though, de la Rosa has an extreme L/R split, especially this year. Lefties crush him, while righties generally struggle.
