Pre-Gamin’: Cubs at Rockies (7:40 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

Zach Davies is still with the Cubs, and he’s making his first post-Trade-Deadline start tonight. It’s still really weird to me that no team out there wanted him as rotation depth for a modest return (and/or that the Cubs didn’t want to take whatever they could get for him), but maybe the Cubs still think there’s upside there for the 28-year-old Hendricks Lite. You never rule out a modest extension in these situations, particularly given the Cubs’ looming needs in the rotation.

The Rockies are quite bad overall, but didn’t sell off, and are 33-20 at home this year (and the Cubs are 20-35 on the road). This is actually quite a tough match-up for the Cubs!
