Cubs Lineups

happy cubs old logoThe Cubs will try to win this series against the Phillies and righty Vincent Velasquez today, and they’ll have a new starter in the lineup to help do it.

Chicago Cubs Lineup v. Philadelphia Phillies (Vincent Velasquez):

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



Albert Almora technically made his big league debut last night with a pinch hit appearance, but today feels more like his real debut. That’ll be fun. Hopefully he makes a sparkling play or five and gets his first big league hit.

Addison Russell gets a day off, with Javy Baez covering shortstop.

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