Trades, trades, trades!! Now baseball.
The trade deadline is indeed behind us, and it’s time to get back to baseball. Here is the first Cubs lineup of August.
Chicago Cubs Lineup v. Miami Marlins (Conley)
- Dexter Fowler, CF
- Kris Bryant, 3B
- Anthony Rizzo, 1B
- Javy Baez, 2B
- Addison Russell, SS
- Jason Heyward, RF
- Willson Contreras, C
- Matt Szczur, LF
- Kyle Hendricks, P
The most notable move tonight is Ben Zobrist getting a breather, with Javy Baez taking over second base. Covering the additional hole (given that Baez plays somewhere, just about every day), is Matt Szczur taking over the left field duties.
Wilson Contreras catches once again, and Javy Baez bats cleanup. Any lineup with those two in it is must watch baseball.
We’ll have a full Pre-Gamin’ for you closer to game time.
