Cubs News: Steve Souza Jr. scratched from Monday's lineup


by - Senior Editor -

Chicago Cubs are having some injury bugs of late.

Cubs outfielder Steve Souza Jr. is a late scratch with right hamstring tightness, the team announced during Monday's pregame between the Cubs and Cardinals.

Ian Happ will replace him in the outfield and bat fifth in the lineup.

The only other lineup change is David Bote will slide down to the sixth spot below Happ.

Hopefully Souza's injury is just a precautionary thing and not anything serious to worry about moving forward.

Check out the new lineup below:
