Chicago Cubs Lineup: Loading Up on Righties vs. Mike Minor

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs are loading up on righties tonight against left-handed Reds starter Mike Minor. Here’s a look at the lineup for Game 2 at Wrigley Field.

Chicago Cubs Lineup:

  1. Nick Madrigal, 2B
  2. Seiya Suzuki, RF
  3. Ian Happ, LF
  4. Franmil Reyes, DH
  5. Nico Hoerner, SS
  6. Nelson Velázquez, CF
  7. Yan Gomes, C
  8. P.J. Higgins, 1B
  9. Chris Morel, 3B

SP: Javier Assad

Right handed hitters have slashed .303/.381/.575 (.404 wOBA) off Minor this season, with 16 home runs in 16 games. So Rafael Ortega and Alfonso Rivas are on the bench, in facor of Nelson Velázquez in center and P.J. Higgins at first.

With Willson Contreras on the IL, that leaves the catching duties to Yan Gomes. With a day game tomorrow, it’ll likely be Higgins behind the plate.

As usual, we’ll have your full Pre-Gamin’ post closer to game time (6:40 CT).
