Pre-Gamin’: Diamondbacks at Cubs (2:05 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

Well, here we are: The final game before the regular season.

The Cubs rotation is set. Their starting position players are set. The bullpen is set. The bench is juuuuust about set (pending a backup catcher decision). All that’s left to do is play one more game in Arizona (incidentally against the Diamondbacks), before flying home to take on the Pirates to kick off the 2021 regular season.

The lineup you see today is very likely going to be the lineup you see on Thursday, with the exception of Javy Baez at shortstop (there is no universal DH this year) and the pitcher in there instead of Eric Sogard.

Zach Davies is on the bump for Chicago and there’s no need to stretch this out. Everyone, stay healthy, and let’s go Cubs!
