Chicago Cubs Lineup: Cubs March in to Pittsburgh with Hammel Leading the Charge

Jason Hammel has been one of the best pitchers in the Majors to start the year. He’s sporting a .75 ERA and 3-0 record. He is the second ranked pitcher in the Majors with a minimum of 20 IP. He goes up against the top ranked offense in the league in the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Kris Bryant is again in left field. He’s getting more and more playing time there as it seems to be where Joe prefers having him play. That relegates Jorge Soler to the bench and Tommy La Stella is in at third base.

Here’s the lineup:

Jason Hammel (R)
@ Pirates – Gerrit Cole (R)
1. Dexter Fowler (S) CF
2. Tommy La Stella (L) 3B
3. Kris Bryant (R) LF
4. Anthony Rizzo (L) 1B
5. Ben Zobrist (S) 2B
6. Addison Russell (R) SS
7. Matt Szczur (R) RF
8. David Ross (R) C
9. Jason Hammel (R) P
