The Cubs will try to shake off a couple ugly losses in New York, where the bats haven’t really clicked, with this crew.
Chicago Cubs Lineup vs. New York Mets (Bartolo Colon)
- Ben Zobrist, 2B
- Jason Heyward, CF
- Kris Bryant, 3B
- Anthony Rizzo, 1B
- Willson Contreras, LF
- Miguel Montero, C
- Addison Russell, SS
- Chris Coghlan, RF
- Jake Arrieta, P
Willson Contreras pretty much never sits anymore, which is neat, and he’ll head back out to left field for this one. That’s because Jake Arrieta is starting, and Miguel Montero is back in there behind the plate. It’s no secret he’s not been at his best behind or at the plate since an early-season back issue popped up, but hopefully he can still contribute.
Chris Coghlan starts out in right field to get another lefty bat in there, with Jason Heyward sliding over to center.
We’ll have a full Pre-Gamin’ closer to game time.
