8/9 Lineup change – Soto scratched

Geovany Soto was scratched from Monday’s game because his right shoulder was still sore. Soto has not played since Friday, bothered by a mild ligament sprain. Koyie Hill started in his place.

The Cubs already are short-handed because first baseman Derrek Lee is not with the team. He was headed home to Sacramento to be with his grandfather, who was ill. The Cubs expected word after the game as to whether Lee would return or be placed on the bereavement list.
