Chicago Cubs Lineup: Willson is Back!

Chicago Cubs

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:

  1. Chris Morel, 2B
  2. Willson Contreras, DH
  3. Patrick Wisdom, 3B
  4. Seiya Suzuki, RF
  5. Nico Hoerner, SS
  6. Ian Happ, LF
  7. Yan Gomes, C
  8. P.J. Higgins, 1B
  9. 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).
