Chicago Cubs Lineup: Happ Gets Another Start Against a Lefty

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs have seven games left against the Cardinals this season, including four this weekend (and two today!). They’ll open things up against the left-hander J.A. Happ, with Willson Contreras up top.

Chicago Cubs Lineup:

1. Willson Contreras, C
2. Frank Schwindel, 1B
3. Ian Happ, RF
4. Patrick Wisdom, LF
5. Matt Duffy, 3B
6. Nico Hoerner, SS
7. David Bote, 2B
8. Trayce Thompson, CF
9. Justin Steele, P

J.A. Happ has a much harder time against righties (.378 wOBA) than lefties (.307 wOBA) this season, so he’ll get a lineup full of them (aside from Justin Steele) this afternoon. That includes Willson Contreras up top. Plus Matt Duffy and David Bote along the infield, pushing Patrick Wisdom out to left.

Ian Happ is also getting another start against a lefty, though he does seem to be handling them a bit better here lately.

As usual, we’ll have your full Pre-Gamin’ post closer to game time (1:20 CT).
