Corresponding roster moves for Tommy La Stella and Adam Warren coming soon …
The Cubs face a 2015 nemesis in Anthony DeSclafani, who wasn’t just good against the Cubs last year – he posted a 3.2 WAR in 2015. How about that?
Chicago Cubs Lineup vs. Cincinnati Reds (Anthony DeSclafani)
- Ben Zobrist, 2B
- Kris Bryant, RF
- Anthony Rizzo, 1B
- Willson Contreras, LF
- Tommy La Stella, 3B
- Jason Heyward, CF
- Addison Russell, SS
- Miguel Montero, C
- Adam Warren, P
Tommy La Stella is back, and he’s right in there against the righty. Hopefully his high-contact bat will be an additional spark to the lineup. And maybe he’ll bust out a magic slide at the plate, too. They’ll probably need some runs today.
Jason Heyward stays in the six hole for now, even against a righty. Addison Russell, who’s hot as all get-out, moves back down to the seven-hole.
As discussed this morning, Adam Warren draws the start, and will hopefully give the Cubs five or six strong innings.
We’ll have a full Pre-Gamin’ closer to game time.
