Chicago Cubs Lineup: Contreras Catching, Coghlan in Left
Amid the deadline craziness, the Cubs also play a game tonight!
Chicago Cubs Lineup v. Seattle Mariners (Felix Hernandez):
- Dexter Fowler, CF
- Kris Bryant, 3B
- Anthony Rizzo, 1B
- Ben Zobrist, 2B
- Addison Russell, SS
- Jason Heyward, RF
- Willson Contreras, C
- Chris Coghlan, LF
- Brian Matusz, P
Willson Contreras gets back behind the plate to catch new Cubs lefty Brian Matusz (more on him in a bit). Chris Coghlan draws the start in left field.
Anthony Rizzo is back in there after a day off yesterday (well, most of a day off), and Javy Baez takes his turn getting a breather.
We’ll have a full Pre-Gamin’ for you closer to game time.

FOLKS! The Cubs Are in “Advanced Discussions” on a Nico Hoerner Extension!!! (UPDATE: It’s Happening!)
