Chicago Cubs Lineup: Baez Moves to Shortstop, La Stella Starts at Third

Cubs Lineups

happy cubs old logoA new day, a new series, a new lineup.

Lots of changes in today’s group, which I don’t think we’ve seen in this particular configuration all year:

  1. Dexter Fowler, CF
  2. Jason Heyward, RF
  3. Kris Bryant, LF
  4. Anthony Rizzo, 1B
  5. Ben Zobrist, 2B
  6. Tommy La Stella, 3B
  7. Miguel Montero, C
  8. Javy Baez, SS
  9. John Lackey, P


Yesterday’s hero Javy Baez gets another start, this time at shortstop, giving Addison Russell a day off. Ben Zobrist is back at his usual spot.

Tommy La Stella draws the start at third base against righty Archie Bradley, and is part of a stretch where the only right-handed bat Bradley will see for the first seven batters is that of Kris Bryant.

We’ll get your full Pre-Gamin’ closer to today’s start.
