Chicago Cubs Lineup: Willson Contreras Gets a Breather

Chicago Cubs

Well with all the rumors floating around, I figured this would be a later-than-usual lineup. Here’s David Ross’ group for Game 3 (of 4) against the Reds in Chicago.

Chicago Cubs Lineup:

1. Rafael Ortefa, CF
2. Kris Bryant, LF
3. Anthony Rizzo, 1B
4. Patrick Wisdom, 3B
5. Matt Duffy, 2B
6. Jason Heyward, RF
7. Robinson Chirinos, C
8. Nico Hoerner, SS
9. Zach Davies, P

Well, as of this moment, Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo, and Zach Davies are all still Cubs. Willson Contreras is getting a rest day with an early game tomorrow, so Robinson Chirinos is on the bench. And Javy Baez, who hurt his heel, is still out in favor of Nico Hoerner at shortstop.

And oh, interesting, Matt Duffy at second base, eh? Some thinking ahead perhaps?

As usual, we’ll have your full Pre-Gamin’ post closer to game time (7:05 CT).
