Chicago Cubs Lineup: A Mix of the Regulars

Cubs Lineups

Things didn’t quite go the Cubs way yesterday, but they’ll try again today against the crosstown White Sox.

Chicago Cubs Lineup: 

  1. Daniel Murphy, 2B
  2. Ben Zobrist, RF
  3. Javy Baez, SS
  4. Anthony Rizzo, 1B
  5. Kris Bryant, LF
  6. Jason Heyward, CF
  7. Willson Contreras, C
  8. Kyle Schwarber, DH
  9. David Bote, 3B

Tonight’s White Sox starter, Lucas Giolito, has had a rough season overall, but has pitched particularly poorly against left-handed batters: .262/.364/.464 (.359 wOBA). Righties have gotten him, too (.324 wOBA), but obviously, lefties have been the biggest poison. Nice to see Schwarber and Heyward back in there to that end, though the lineup is clearly not all about maximizing lefties.

As usual, we’ll have your full Pre-Gamin’ closer to game time (6:10 CT).
