Pre-Gamin’: Angels at Cubs (2:05 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs have a different looking infield this afternoon.

With Andrelton Simmons and Nick Madrigal nursing injuries, and Patrick Wisdom at DH, the Cubs are lined up Jonathan Villar – Nico Hoerner – Ildemaro Vargas – Frank Schwindel from third to first. Villar gets the lead off honors in Madrigal’s absence, and Seiya Suzuki was moved out of the two-hole for the first time this spring. Jason Heyward continues to draw starts in center field next to Suzuki, and I’m resigned to the fact that it’s just going to be his position to start the year. I really hate it, but that seems to be the case.

Willson Contreras is behind the plate and Ian Happ is out there in left field.

Today’s game is an hour earlier than usual (2:05 CT) – so don’t miss it. There’s only four left before the regular season. Go Cubs.
