Chicago Cubs Lineup: Anthony Rizzo and Jason Heyward Back In

Cubs Lineups

happy cubs old logoToday’s Chicago Cubs lineup looks more like the familiar set we’d come to expect before yesterday’s well-time rest day for Anthony Rizzo and Jason Heyward:

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


With today’s opposing starter bearing such strong career splits – Jerad Eickhoff, in his short career thus far, has been crushed by lefties and has dominated righties – you could have made an argument for Tommy La Stella in there over Jorge Soler (by way of Kris Bryant sliding into the outfield), but it’s hard to argue with keeping Soler going. He’s been among the Cubs’ best hitters the last few weeks.

Anthony Rizzo and Jason Heyward are back in there, each looking to get off a bit of a cold stretch.

Your full Pre-Gamin’ should be up closer to game time.
