Cubs Starting Lineup (7/3): Why Is Contreras In RF?

The Cubs look to get a win tonight in Pittsburgh at 6:05 pm CDT on NBC Sports Chicago and 670 The Score.

Here is tonight’s Cubs Starting Lineup:

  1. Kyle Schwarber LF
  2. Javy Baez SS
  3. Anthony Rizzo 1B
  4. Willson Contreras RF
  5. Victor Caratini C
  6. David Bote 3B
  7. Addison Russell 2B
  8. Albert Almora CF
  9. Yu Darvish SP

Darvish is 2-4 with a 4.98 ERA in 17 starts this season.

One big thing that stands out in the lineup is, why’s Willson Contreras in right field? Contreras has only started behind the plate this season. He’s never started in right field in his MLB career.

If the Cubs want to consistently win, they need a consistent lineup. It seems as if Joe Maddon is shifting everyone around to different positions and different spots in the order every night.
