It’s Seiya Suzuki Day at Sloan Park, as the Cubs’ biggest offseason acquisition will be making his debut with his new team. He’ll be batting second and playing right this afternoon as the Cubs take on Kris Bryant‘s Rockies.
Clint Frazier will lead off in left, followed by Suzuki and then Ian Happ at DH. Willson Contreras is catching, Jason Heyward is in center, Jonathan Villar is at third, and Nick Madrigal is at second. Nico Hoerner plays short and Alfonso Rivas finishes things out at first base.
Alec Mills makes his second start and he’ll be looking to tighten a few things up from his first time out. Gametime is 3:05pm CT on Marquee Sports Network.
