8/23 LIneup & update

Alfonso Soriano did not start Sunday because of a sore left knee that has been bothering him for a few days. It’ll be the “F Troop” lineup vs. the Dodgers — Fuld, Fukudome, Fox and Fontenot:

SS Theriot

CF Fuld

1B Lee

3B Ramirez

RF Fukudome

LF Fox

2B Fontenot

C Hill

P Dempster

The semi-shakeup of the lineup comes despite Lou Piniella saying before Sunday’s game that the Cubs need the veteran players to step up in the final 41 games.

* X-rays of Reed Johnson’s foot show it is not healing as quickly as hoped, and he most likely will not be available until early September.
