Chicago Cubs Lineup: No Rizzo Today

Chicago Cubs

Player’s Weekend hasn’t quite gone as expected for the Cubs, and now they have to face Stephen Strasburg (without Anthony Rizzo) to avoid the sweep. Here’s the lineup for the finale at Wrigley Field.

Chicago Cubs Lineup:

  1. J-Hey, CF
  2. Artist, RF
  3. KB, 2B
  4. El Mago, SS
  5. Schwarbs, LF
  6. Luc, C
  7. Addy, 2B
  8. Happer, 1B
  9. Hollywood, P

Anthony Rizzo isn’t in today’s lineup after being removed from yesterday’s game with back tightness. Your hope is that it’s just some additional/caution-fueled rest – but we’ll have to wait and see. Ian Happ is covering first base today in his place.

Other than that, just note that it’ll be Jonathan Lucroy catching Cole Hamels and Addison Russell is at second base. As usual, we’ll have your full Pre-Gamin’ post closer to game time (1:20 CT).
