Chicago Cubs Lineup: Contreras at First Base, Baez Cleaning Up

Cubs Lineups

happy cubs old logoThe Cubs’ bats blew up in a big way yesterday, and here’s the group that’ll try to keep the good times going.

Chicago Cubs Lineup v. Seattle Mariners (Wade Miley):

  1. Dexter Fowler, CF
  2. Kris Bryant, 3B
  3. Ben Zobrist, LF
  4. Javy Baez, 2B
  5. Addison Russell, SS
  6. Jason Heyward, RF
  7. Willson Contreras, 1B
  8. Miguel Montero, C
  9. Jake Arrieta, P



Anthony Rizzo gets the day off against the lefty, with Willson Contreras filling in at first base.

Javy Baez gets a chance to bat cleanup, which makes plenty of sense since he’s been destroying lefties this year (and, in general, is just crushing the ball right now).

We’ll have a full Pre-Gamin’ for you closer to game time.
