Chicago Cubs Lineup: Chris Coghlan is Back in Left Field Again

Cubs Lineups

The Cubs stay at Wrigley Field for their second-to-last home series of the season.

And Jason Hammel takes the ball for Chicago, with these Cubs behind him.

Chicago Cubs Lineup v. Cincinnati Reds (Tim Adleman):

  1. Dexter Fowler, CF
  2. Kris Bryant, 3B
  3. Anthony Rizzo, 1B
  4. Ben Zobrist, 2B
  5. Addison Russell, SS
  6. Jason Heyward, RF
  7. Willson Conteras, C
  8. Chris Coghlan, LF
  9. Jason Hammel, P


The Cubs are running out a fairly normal squad today, with Chris Coghlan being the lone, but inevitable variable. Tim Adelman (a righty) has been a lot worse against lefties than righties this season (.391 wOBA vs. .322 wOBA), though, so Coghlan’s inclusion makes plenty of sense – even after getting a couple of starts over the weekend.

There’s not much to add on the order of the lineup or the defensive positioning. Joe Maddon is growing predictable!

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