Pshh … off-days. It’s like, get real, am I right?!
The Cubs head back to Wrigley Field today for the start of a six game home stand. The first three come against the Milwaukee Brewers and here are the Cubs that that will take the field.
Chicago Cubs Lineup vs. Brewers (Jimmy Nelson):
- Dexter Fowler, CF
- Jason Heyward, RF
- Kris Bryant, 3B
- Anthony Rizzo, 1B
- Ben Zobrist, 2B
- Jorge Soler, LF
Miguel Montero, CDavid Ross is now in, as Montero has been scratched.
- Addison Russell, SS
- Kyle Hendricks, P
I was certain that Tommy La Stella was going to draw the start today, given his big game Sunday (2 2Bs, HR) and Nelson’s splits, but Soler’s overall ceiling and need to start regularly trumps those factors.
That’s probably the right call.
