The Cubs head out to face the A’s at their old stomping ground, Hohokam Stadium. With a 3-9 record, the Cubs are still at the bottom of the Cactus League standings. Kyle Hendricks gets the start, with Travis Wood likely to follow.
Kyle Schwarber does indeed return to the lineup in left field, and all of Jeimer Candelario, Albert Almora, and Willson Contreras get themselves another start.
