Chicago Cubs Lineup: No Castellanos, Hoerner in Center

Chicago Cubs

It’s the finale for the Cubs, who’ll get Nico Hoerner a game in center field, prepping him for the possibilities ahead.

Chicago Cubs Lineup: 

  1. Tony Kemp, RF
  2. Ben Zobrist, 2B
  3. Kyle Schwarber, LF
  4. Ian Happ, 3B
  5. Willson Contreras, C
  6. Victor Caratini, 1B
  7. Nico Hoerner, CF
  8. Addison Russell, SS
  9. Derek Holland, P

No Nick Castellanos today, as his groin issue must’ve laid him up a bit for this final series. So that kinda stinks, with no shot at reaching 60 doubles, and possibly his time with the Cubs is over.

The Cubs face Jack Flaherty today, because the Cardinals are still trying to lock down the division.

As usual, we’ll have your full Pre-Gamin’ post closer to game time (2:15 CT).
