He’s Baaaack! Welcome Matt Szczur Back to the Lineup – Cubs @ Rangers

Yes, that’s right, as Cubs Kingdom joyfully reported to you on Monday, Matt Szczur is back and he’s 100%. It’s good to have him back in the lineup. Although, his contract status is up in the air because he’s been maxed out on minor league options and would end up on waivers if he gets sent to the minors at the end of spring training, and likely get picked up by another team. We’ll have to wait to see how that plays out and if he makes the 25-man roster or not.

Here’s the lineup:

Kyle Hendricks (R) @ Rangers – Derek Holland (L)
1. Addison Russell (R) SS
2. Kristopher Negron (R) 1B
3. Kyle Schwarber (L) LF
4. Jorge Soler (R) RF
5. Tim Federowicz (R) C
6. Matt Szczur (R) CF
7. Munenori Kawasaki (L) 2B
8. Jason Vosler (L) 3B
9. Kyle Hendricks (R) P

Immediately after this game will be the 2nd annual Cubs v Rangers futures game, which will feature prospects from both clubs. Gotta love bonus baseball in the spring! I will post game threads on my Twitter feed as well as a postgame wrap at http://cubskingdom.com.
