Pre-Gamin’: Diamondbacks at Cubs (1:20 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

While I will be rooting for the Cubs today, I’ll be hyper-focused on Zach Davies, who could very well be making his final start in a Cubs uniform. It is a sellers market, hungry for starting pitching and Davies isn’t likely to net the Cubs an additional pick by turning down a qualifying offer after the season. He does have time for one last start before the trade deadline, but that start would come against the Reds, and I tend to think the Cubs rather end his tenure against the much weaker Diamondbacks.

Of course, that’s only if today goes well. If it doesn’t, then they may want him to give it one last shot before the deadline against a Nick Castellanos-less Reds team at Wrigley Field.

Either way, we need a good start from Davies.
