Chicago Cubs Lineup: Nelson Velázquez and All Three Catchers

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs are playing an early one this afternoon (11:35 am CT!), with a chance to split the series in Pittsburgh. Here’s David Ross’ lineup for the series finale.

Chicago Cubs Lineup:

  1. Christopher Morel, CF
  2. Willson Contreras, C
  3. Ian Happ, LF
  4. Patrick Wisdom, 3B
  5. Yan Gomes, DH
  6. Jonathan Villar, 2B
  7. Nico Hoerner, SS
  8. Nelson Velázquez, RF
  9. P.J. Higgins, 1B

SP: Justin Steele, LHP

With a lefty, Jose Quintana, on the mound today for the Pirates, Nelson Velázquez is getting the start in right field over Jason Heyward and all three Cubs catchers are getting into the game: Willson Contreras behind the plate, P.J. Higgins at first base, and Yan Gomes at DH.

There are no lefties in today’s lineup. Let’s see if it works.

As usual, we’ll have your full Pre-Gamin’ post closer to game time (11:35 am CT).
