Cubs lineup vs. Red Sox, Javy Baez at cleanup


by - Senior Editor -

The Chicago Cubs will battle the defending World Champion Red Sox on Monday night at 8:05 p.m. CDT at Sloan Park in Mesa, Arizona.

The game will be streamed on the radio on MLB.com and televised on MLB.TV, NBC Sports Chicago, and ESPN+.

Good news for the Cubs as veteran reliever Pedro Strop has been scheduled to pitch at some point tonight as he will test his right hamstring out against live batters.

Second baseman Daniel Descalso is also listed as a reserve tonight and might see action as his left shoulder feels fine.
