Cubs Starting Lineup (5/27): No Bryant, Báez at DH, Jim Adduci Debuts

The Cubs look for a fresh start today, opening a 3-game series against Houston at 1:10 pm CST on WGN-TV and 670 The Score.

Here is today’s Cubs Starting Lineup:

  1. Kyle Schwarber LF
  2. Javy Báez DH
  3. Anthony Rizzo 1B
  4. Willson Contreras C
  5. Jim Adduci RF
  6. Albert Almora Jr. CF
  7. Daniel Descalso 2B
  8. Addison Russell SS
  9. David Bote 3B

You’re probably wondering who Jim Adduci is and why he’s in the Lineup.

Adduci was called-up from Iowa today as the Cubs sent down LHP Tim Collins. He can play both the infield and outfield. The move can be connected to Bryant’s collision yesterday.

Adduci is 34 years old and just had the best game of his season yesterday, going 3-for-6 with 6 RBI for Iowa.

Cole Hamels is on the mound for the Cubs. Hamels is 4-0 with a 3.38 ERA in 10 games this season.
