Spring Fever – March 20, 2015 (Cubs Lineup, Broadcast Info)

ALMORA 7-17

It’s the first taste of the 2015 Cubs/White Sox rivalry today at 3:05 PM CST on Comcast SportsNet Chicago.  Travis Wood gets the ball for the Cubs as he closes in on the 5th spot in the rotation, if his arm doesn’t fall off today then I think he’s announced as said 5th starter shortly.   A number of regulars are on the bench today after playing last night against the D-Backs, still some exciting players to watch.  One of those players is Albert Almora, he’s having a tremendous spring and looks to be healthy and ready to break out this year.

1. La Stella – 3B
2. Alcantara – 2B
3. Sweeney – RF
4. Lake – LF
5. Baxter – 1B
6. Almora – CF
7. Ross – C
8. Herrera – SS
9. Wood – SP

Arrieta FIRE

Jake Arrieta is back at it today as the Cubs take on the Dodgers at 3:05 PM CST on MLB.tv (with paid subscription), the game can also be heard on Cubs.com.  The plan is for Arrieta to go four innings or so, obviously it depends on pitch count, and how well he is throwing the ball.  The Cubs lineup this afternoon is intriguing because Matt Szczur is hitting 5th, the kid has a real shot at making this team, I hope he does.  No Kris Bryant today as he is still resting his shoulder, not sure if he will make it in later today as there is no DH.

1. Coghlan – LF
2. Alcantara – 3B
3. Rizzo – 1B
4. Soler – RF
5. Szczur – CF
6. La Stella – 2B
7. Ross – C
8. Russell – SS
9. Arrieta – SP (Hitting today)

jason-hammel

The Cubs will hit the road today as they take on the Angels at 3:10 PM CST.  Jason Hammel will get the ball for the Cubs looking to rebound from his first start which wasn’t so great.  Today’s game can be seen on MLB.tv with a paid subscription, or listened to through the same device with an MLB.com account.  There were whispers that MLB Network would pick up the game because of Will Ferrell’s appearance, but I’m not 100% sure on that.

1. Denorfia – DH
2. Baez – 2B
3. Soler – RF
4. Olt – 1B
5. Bryant – 3B
6. Lake – LF
7. Castillo – C
8. Russell – SS
9. Szczur – CF

SP – Jason Hammel

Impressions?  Joe Maddon is doing his best to get Mike Olt in the lineup every single day, that should tell you something.  The last time Baez, Soler, Bryant, and Russell were in the lineup there were a bunch of LOUD NOISES, hope that happens again today.
