Chicago Cubs Lineup: Anthony Rizzo Has Returned!

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs go for the series win against the Brewers later this afternoon, and they’ll do so with their big man at first base back in the lineup! Woo!

Chicago Cubs Lineup: 

  1. Jason Heyward, CF
  2. Nicholas Castellanos, RF
  3. Kris Bryant, 3B
  4. Anthony Rizzo, 1B
  5. Javy Baez, SS
  6. Victor Caratini, C
  7. Kyle Schwarber, LF
  8. Addison Russell, 2B
  9. Cole Hamels, P

Hello, Anthony!

Thanks to a sore back, Anthony Rizzo hasn’t played a game since back on August 24th, but he’s in there today to face a guy, Zach Davies, who’s actually gotten the best of him through 36-career at-bats: .250/.308/.361 (4 doubles, 1BB, 4Ks). Let’s see if Rizzo can dial up that slash line, eh?

After all, Davies, a righty, has some pretty large splits this season that should favor Rizzo (plus Heyward, Caratini, and Schwarber):

LHH v. Davies: .275/.341/.486 (.346 wOBA)
RHH v. Davies: .268/.319/.402 (.307)

As usual, we’ll have your full Pre-Gamin’ post closer to game time (1:20 CT).
