Chicago Cubs Lineup: Well, Everyone Seems to Be Accounted For

Chicago Cubs

Given the lateness of the lineup and the cryptic roster moves yesterday and today, I was tentatively expecting some sort of COVID-altered lineup this afternoon, but everything seems to be mostly normal for the finale in Pittsburgh. Check it out ….

Chicago Cubs Lineup:

1. Rafael Ortega, CF
2. Frank Schwindel, 1B
3. Ian Happ, LF
4. Willson Conteras, C
5. Matt Duffy, 3B
6. Nick Martini, RF
7. David Bote, 2B
8. Sergio Alcántara, SS
9. Justin Steele, P

From top to bottom, this is a standard last month of the 2021 season lineup for the Chicago Cubs. A few key players are out (Jason Heyward, Patrick Wisdom, Nico Hoerner, Michael Hermosillo, Alfonso Rivas, etc.), but Nick Martini, David Bote, Matt Duffy, and Segio Alcántara have been covering for all of them for a while now.

Willson Conteras is also back behind the plate and the top of the order looks the same as usual.

So that’s that and we’ll have your full Pre-Gamin’ post closer to game time (5:35 CT).
