Chicago Cubs Lineup: Employ All the Righties

Cubs Lineups

happy cubs old logoThe Cubs now won six in a row, and today they’ll look to make it seven. Here’s the crew …

Chicago Cubs Lineup v. Oakland Athletics (Sean Manaea)

  1. Dexter Fowler, CF
  2. Kris Bryant, 3B
  3. Anthony Rizzo, 1B
  4. Ben Zobrist, RF
  5. Addison Russell, SS
  6. Jorge Soler, DH
  7. Willson Contreras, C
  8. Javy Baez, 2B
  9. Matt Szczur, LF

With lefty Sean Manaea on the mound for the A’s, the Cubs load up on righties, perhaps as extremely as we’ve seen all season. The only batter Manaea will face from the left side is Anthony Rizzo.

Jorge Soler continues his AL stint as the Cubs’ designated designated hitter. We’ll see what happens next week when things shift back to NL rules.

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