The Chicago Cubs (8-13) will play a second straight exhibition game against the rival White Sox (11-7) on Monday night.

The rivalry action will be played at Guaranteed Rate Field at 7:10 p.m. CT on Marquee Sports Network and NBC Sports Chicago (White Sox telecast).

David Bote 3B

Javier Baez SS

Kyle Schwarber DH

Steven Souza Jr. LF

Jason Heyward RF

Albert Almora Jr. CF

Nico Hoerner 2B

Victor Caratini C

Yu Darvish P

Lineup notes: Anthony Rizzo is still out as he works back from his back tightness issue. Victor Caratini gets the start at catcher as he is still the personal catcher of Yu Darvish.

Kris Bryant gets the rare start at first base while David Bote mans the hot corner.

Pitching notes: Yu Darvish (0-1, 3.60 ERA) will take the mound for the Cubs against lefty Dallas Keuchel (0-1, 5.87 ERA).
