5/4 Lineup Tuesday & Nady
Xavier Nady started in right field Tuesday night for the Cubs in the series opener against the Pirates. Lou Piniella is trying to rotate five outfielders in three spots and said he tries to tell the players who is starting on which day.
“We communicate fairly well,” Piniella said. “Sometimes the timing isn’t right.”
Has he had a few players lobby for more playing time?
“I’ve had a few players come in,” Piniella said. “It’s nice to visit. They want to play, what can I say? I find that positive.”
The lineup Tuesday is:
— Carrie Muskat
