Pregame Chatter: Cubs v. Brewers, Lester Starting Pitcher – 3:05 CDT

Jon Lester is the starting pitcher today as the Cubs take on the Brewers at Sloan Park at 3:05 CDT. Here’s the lineup:

Jon Lester (L) vs. Brewers – Michael Blazek (R)
1. Ben Zobrist (S) 2B
2. Jason Heyward (L) CF
3. Kris Bryant (R) 3B
4. Anthony Rizzo (L) 1B
5. Kyle Schwarber (L) LF
6. Jorge Soler (R) RF
7. David Ross (R) C
8. Munenori Kawasaki (L) SS
9. Jon Lester (L) P

Addison Russell gets the day off today while Schwarber slots in at left field and Heyward is playing center. Another interesting note is seeing Ben Zobrist in the lead-off spot. While he’s not likely to bat there during the season, I’ll be interested to see how it plays out with a near-opening-day-lineup in place.
