Pre-Gamin’: Cubs at Dodgers (7:05 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

Night game!

Tonight, the Los Angeles Dodgers are hosting the Chicago Cubs at Camelback Ranch for some evening baseball (7:05 CT). You can catch this game on MLB Network if you have it, otherwise the Cubs will be back on Marquee tomorrow.

Trevor Williams is starting for Chicago tonight, making his Cubs debut after signing a one-year deal at the end of January. He’s had a rough couple of years lately, but he’s not too far removed from a quality 3.11 ERA (3.86 FIP) performance for the Pirates in 2018. Williams, 28, is a presumed member of the starting rotation right out of the game, though he should probably be penciled in as the #4 or #5.

The Cubs lineup, meanwhile, is led off by Ian Happ, who’s been alternating with Anthony Rizzo, and features Nico Hoerner at second base.

The regular season starts exactly four weeks from today for the Cubs, but there’s a lot of spring action to get through until then.
