I know the Cubs are already way out of it this season, but we can do a lot worse than Marcus Stroman vs. Clayton Kershaw at Dodger Stadium on a Saturday night, right? I think so.
And Willson Contreras returns to the lineup tonight!
Chicago Cubs Lineup:
- Chris Morel, 2B
- Willson Contreras, DH
- Patrick Wisdom, 3B
- Seiya Suzuki, RF
- Nico Hoerner, SS
- Ian Happ, LF
- Yan Gomes, C
- P.J. Higgins, 1B
- Nelson Velazquez, CF
SP: Marcus Stroman, RHP
It’s good to see that, once again, Contreras treated his hamstring with extra caution, and instead of turning into the kind of legit strain that costs him a month, it was just a few days of rest. I’m sure the Cubs are very appreciative of his proactivity …
With Contreras back, the Cubs are going with START ALL THE CATCHERS mode against the lefty.
And, as previously reported – and, you know, noted up top – Marcus Stroman returns tonight, too! Lots of returns!
As usual, we’ll have your full Pre-Gamin’ post closer to game time (9:10 CT).
