Chicago Cubs Lineup: Cubs Get the Righties In There

Cubs Lineups

happy cubs old logoThe Cubs will try to lock up this series against the Diamondbacks today, and they’ll toss out a bunch of righty bats against a lefty.

Chicago Cubs Lineup v. Arizona Diamondbacks (Edwin Escobar):

  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. Addison Russell, SS
  8. David Ross, C
  9. Jason Hammel, P

The young lefty Escobar will face right-handed batters the whole way through except for Jason Heyward and Anthony Rizzo, each of whom seems to be heating up.

David Ross gets another start, as the Cubs continue to aggressively rotate their primary two catchers, which seems like a very good idea given Ross’s age and Miguel Montero’s back. Tim Federowicz remains on the roster as the back-up-back-up.


Full Pre-Gamin’ closer to today’s game time.
