Chicago Cubs Lineup: Schwarber Batting Lead-off, Happ at Second, Hendricks on the Hill

The Cubs will make the short trip up the 101 freeway to play the Colorado Rockies at Salt River Fields today. With the later game Sunday evening, Joe Maddon has to make sure guys get their rest, which means none of the starters from last night are in the lineup this afternoon.

Kyle Schwarber heads the lineup today in the leadoff spot, backed by Albert Almora in center field. That’s it as far as starters, but we will get to see highly ranked prospects Ian Happ and Jeimer Candelario. Kyle Hendricks will pitch and it’s possible we seem him hang around for up to five innings.
