happy cubs old logoTonight’s lineup is out, and Jorge Soler gets the start again in left field against a tough righty in Zack Greinke:

  1. Dexter Fowler, CF
  2. Jason Heyward, RF
  3. Ben Zobrist, 2B
  4. Anthony Rizzo, 1B
  5. Kris Bryant, 3B
  6. Miguel Montero, C
  7. Jorge Soler, LF
  8. Addison Russell, SS
  9. Kyle Hendricks, P

Hopefully Soler doesn’t feel any particular pressure to show it all, immediately, with the opportunity he’s likely to have to lock down a full-time job in left field. And, similarly, hopefully the Cubs aren’t impatient with that opportunity. Soler’s got upside that few in the game possess, and, since the fates cruelly dictated an opening,¬†might as well view it a chance to spend a good long stretch of time seeing what Soler can become.

Elsewhere, the lineup looks about what you’d expect. Full Pre-Gamin’ coming later this evening for the 7:10pm CT start.
