Pre-Gamin’: Cubs v. A’s (3:05 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

hohokam stadium a'sBack to HoHoKam for the Cubs today as they take on the A’s, playing in their first season at the Cubs’ old Spring home.

Edwin Jackson, who’s got to lead the Cactus League in unearned runs, faces Drew Pomeranz. Jackson likely still trails Travis Wood in the rotation competition, but the Cubs have suggested they might get creative to find jobs for them both if Jackson keeps pitching well and isn’t traded.

Today’s game is not televised (you will be bummed when you see the lineup), but you can listen to the audio at or using MLB Gameday Audio.

The lineup:

  1. Dexter Fowler, CF
  2. Junior Lake, LF
  3. Jorge Soler, RF
  4. Anthony Rizzo, 1B
  5. Kris Bryant, 3B
  6. Miguel Montero, C
  7. Javier Baez, 2B
  8. Addison Russell, SS
  9. Edwin Jackson, P

No Starlin Castro for his birthday game. He’s been out with a tight groin, and although the original indication was that he’d likely be back today, I guess the Cubs want to give him a little more rest and birthday cake.
