Chicago Cubs Lineup (UPDATED): Soler Scratched, La Stella Playing Third Base
Jorge Soler has been scratched from today’s lineup that was posted earlier. He apparently has an ingrown toenail which must have just popped up overnight. Following are the changes that Joe Maddon has made to the lineup.
It’s the same batting order but with ever player that was below Soler moving up one spot in the order. Tommy La Stella gets slotted in as the ninth batter in the order behind Jake Arrieta.
Positionally, Ben Zobrist moves from second base to right field, Javy Baez moves from third base to second, and Tommy La Stella steps in at third base.
