8/22 Cubs lineup – no Castro

Starlin Castro was not in the Cubs lineup Monday night for the first game of a four-game series against the Braves. Castro may be getting a breather, or he may be getting some extra instruction after Sunday night’s game when he was criticized for his lackadaisical preparation on defense by ESPN’s Bobby Valentine.

Here’s the lineup:

SS Barney

2B DeWitt

3B Ramirez

1B Pena

CF Byrd

LF Soriano

RF Colvin

C Hill

P Dempster
