Chicago Cubs Lineup: Seiya Suzuki is Back!

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs dropped the opener against the Diamondbacks last night, but they’ve got two more chances in Arizona this weekend. Here’s the lineup for Game 2 at Chase Field.

Chicago Cubs Lineup: 

1. Willson Contreras, DH
2. Seiya Suzuki, RF
3. Ian Happ, LF
4. Yan Gomes, C
5. Patrick Wisdom, 3B
6. Frank Schwindel, 1B
7. Jason Heyward, CF
8. Jonathan Villar, 2B
9. Ildemaro Vargas, SS

Zac Gallen is on the bump for the D-Backs this evening, with five really great outings to his name this season. His last three were particularly impressive (combined): 19.1 IP, 12H, 2ER, 2BB, 17Ks. And unfortunately for the Cubs, there are no real split advantages to exploit. Gallen has been close to split neutral for his entire career, and righties are hitting him (barely) better this season.

But there’s also very good news today, as Seiya Suzuki is back in the lineup after hurting his ankle earlier this week. And he’s not just in there as the DH, he’s actually playing right field. That’s great.

As usual, we’ll have your full Pre-Gamin’ post closer to game time (7:10 CT).
