Chicago Cubs Lineup: Your Final Not-Quite-Real Lineup of the Year

Cubs Lineups

The Cubs are playing their final game of the Spring, and that means the regular season is RIGHT AROUND THE FREAKIN’ CORNER.

Sorry, I got a little excited there.

Here’s the Cubs’ final not-quite-real lineup:

  1. Kyle Schwarber, DH
  2. Kris Bryant, 3B
  3. Anthony Rizzo, 1B
  4. Ben Zobrist, 2B
  5. Addison Russell, SS
  6. Jason Heyward, RF
  7. Albert Almora, Jr., CF
  8. Miguel Montero, C
  9. Jon Jay, LF

Starting Pitcher: Kyle Hendricks


So it’s mostly regulars today, but I suppose that really depends on your position of who is a regular or not. Javy Baez and Willson Contreras are notable absences, but given how much we know Baez will move around this year, that’s not much of a surprise. Additionally, we know that Montero is expected to draw more starts than a typical back-up, so this is all a fairly standard, regular season lineup (when there’s a DH allowed, that is).

We are almost there, friends. So get ready. Two more days.

And as usual, we’ll have your full Pre-Gamin’ closer to game time.
