4/7 LaHair expected to start Sunday
Bryan LaHair, sidelined for one week with tightness in his back, was available to pinch hit on Saturday and expected to start Sunday in the Cubs series finale against the Nationals. LaHair got treatment on Friday, an off day, and has been able to hit off a batting tee.
“If everything goes good like it did [Friday] — he’s feeling great today — he’ll be in the lineup tomorrow,” manager Dale Sveum said Saturday.
