Chicago Cubs baseball is back!
Well sorta, with tonight's Cubs (8-12) exhibition game against the rival White Sox (10-7) at Wrigley Field at 7:05 p.m. CT on ESPN (out-of-market only), Marquee Sports Network, and NBC Sports Chicago (White Sox).
Should be some interesting baseball tonight.
Here are the lineups for tonight's action for the Cubs:
Kris Bryant 3B
Jason Kipnis DH
Javier Baez SS
Nico Hoerner 2B
Albert Almora Jr. CF
Lineup Note: Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo is not in the lineup today but will go through a full day of work as he is feeling fine according to reports.
Ian Happ is a late replacement for Albert Almora Jr. in CF and will bat ninth for the Cubs.
