9/21 Lineup, Colvin & Samardzija
Tyler Colvin joined the Cubs in Milwaukee Monday and will make his Major League debut in center field, batting seventh. Colvin got the call from his manager, Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg, when he was eating at a Cracker Barrel, headed home for the offseason.
* Reed Johnson was activated from the disabled list as well and Sam Fuld was given the go-ahead to hit. Fuld was bothered by a sore wrist. Now, the Cubs have plenty of outfielders.
* Also, Jeff Samardzija will make his second ML start Wednesday, subbing for Ted Lilly, who has tendinitis in his left shoulder. Lilly was expected to pitch this weekend in San Francisco as was Rich Harden, who was being skipped Monday.
* Here’s Monday’s lineup:
