Ian Happ leads off in center as the Cubs return to Hohokam Stadium to face the A’s. Anthony Rizzo is at first, Kris Bryant bats and plays third, Joc Pederson cleans up in left, and Willson Contreras catches. Javier Baez handles short, Jason Heyward is in right, and Nico Hoerner bats eighth at second base.
Zach Davies is on the mound for the third time after holding opponents hitless in his first two outings. This guy might open a few eyes in ’21. Slated to follow Davies are Rex Brothers, Juan Gámez, Jake Jewell, James Norwood, Justin Steele, Ryan Tepera, and Brad Wieck.
First pitch is set for 3:05pm CT on A’s Cast.
