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

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs are back at Wrigley Field, where Keegan Thompson will look to continue his development and audition for spot in the 2022 Cubs rotation. His first two starts haven’t gone well, but this was always going to be a process. Look at Justin Steele, for example. It took him a few outings to get his feet under him and then he delivered a solid performance against the Twins last night.

And, hey, it can’t hurt that Thompson is pitching at home against the second-worst offense against right-handed pitching in all of baseball, right? Go get ’em, guy.

Go Cubs.
