Cubs Lineup: Javy Baez and Tommy La Stella Get Starts

Chicago Cubs

happy cubs old logoA day game after a night game, on getaway day, is a good time to get some guys some rest. And when you can pair that with an opportunity to get an extra lefty bat into the lineup against a tough righty, all the better.

So it is with today’s Cubs lineup:

  1. Dexter Fowler, CF
  2. Jason Heyward, RF
  3. Ben Zobrist, 2B
  4. Anthony Rizzo, 1B
  5. Kris Bryant, LF
  6. Tommy La Stella, 3B
  7. Miguel Montero, C
  8. Javier Baez, SS
  9. Kyle Hendricks, P
Good to see Baez in there after taking one kinda off the wrist last night. He must be fine.

Tommy La Stella draws the start for the Cubs against Carlos Martinez, by way of shifting Kris Bryant to left field. So it’s Jorge Soler and Addison Russell getting this one off, which sounds about right. Each had a tough night last night, and could probably use a day to sit, especially against Martinez.

We’ll have a full Pre-Gamin’ up in advance of game time.
