4/1 Cubs lineup & LaHair
Bryan LaHair was in the Cubs’ early lineup, posted Saturday, for Sunday’s game in Tempe against the Angels but was scratched. His back has tightened up, and he’s being kept out as a precautionary measure. LaHair said he hoped to play either Monday or Tuesday, which would be the Cubs final Cactus League games of the season. The problem could be his commute.
“I have a [one] hour ride to the field and back every day and sitting in that one position, [my back] tightened up a little bit,” LaHair said Sunday. “It’s no big deal.”
The Cubs first baseman has yet to hit a home run this spring.
Here’s the lineup for Sunday’s game:
— Carrie Muskat
