Pre-Gamin’: Cubs at Rangers (2:05 CT) – Lineup, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Pre-Gamin'

The Cubs get Jon Lester back on the mound for the first time since Game Seven of the World Series – an appearance for which most people flash on the two-run, bounced wild pitch, but which was actually really solid (3 IP, 1 ER, 3 H, 1 BB, 4 K), especially when you consider that he was coming out of the bullpen on short rest.

Addison Russell was set to start in this one, but was scratched after feeling residual soreness from a HBP yesterday just above the left elbow. Hopefully he’ll be fine.

Wade Davis and Koji Uehara are expected to make their Cubs Spring Training debuts at some point in this one.
