Chicago Cubs Lineup: A Whole Lot of Regulars

Cubs Lineups

The Chicago Cubs won their first game of the weekend, but could still finish the first-half below .500 if they don’t win today.


Here’s the group that’ll go against the Bucs:

  1. Ben Zobrist, 2B
  2. Kris Bryant, 3B
  3. Anthony Rizzo, 1B
  4. Ian Happ, CF
  5. Kyle Schwarber, LF
  6. Willson Contreras, C
  7. Jason Heyward, RF
  8. Javy Baez, SS
  9. Jake Arrieta, P

With the exception of Addison Russell, who subs out at shortstop in favor Javy Baez, the Cubs are rolling with a lot of regulars today.

Given how crazy the lineup has been over the last few weeks (injuries, demotions, underperformance, etc.), it’s refreshing to see a whole bunch of the Cubs’ preseason expected starters all in one place at once.

Let’ see if they can clinch this series today and give themselves a chance to finish the first half above .500 tomorrow.


As usual, we’ll have your full Pre-Gamin’ closer to game time (6:15 CT).
