Pregame Chatter: Cubs v Royals; Another Fun Lineup

Today the Cubs will take on the Royals at Sloan Park at 3:05 CDT on a day that’s forecast to be quite toasty, with temperatures in the mid-to-low 90s. One of the fun things about spring training is how it helps to build anticipation for the upcoming season, particularly when the regular season is as highly anticipated as the 2016 season is for the Cubs, coming along with World Series expectations. Here’s today’s lineup, which holds a hint of things to come with a close-to-regular-season lineup.

Jon Lester (L) @ Royals – Ian Kennedy (R)
1. Dexter Fowler (S) CF
2. Jason Heyward (L) RF
3. Kris Bryant (R) 3B
4. Anthony Rizzo (L) 1B
5. Jorge Soler (R) LF
6. Addison Russell (R) SS
