9/14 Cubs lineup

Brett Jackson and Anthony Rizzo are back in the Cubs lineup for Friday’s game against the Pirates. Jackson has not played since crashing into the outfield fence in Pittsburgh last Friday. Rizzo has not played since a freak collision at first base in Houston. Here’s the lineup:

DeJesus RF

Valbuena 3B

Rizzo 1B

Soriano LF

Castro SS

Clevenger C

Jackson CF

Barney 2B

Rusin P

— Carrie Muskat


This is really good news! Glad they are both well enough to play. Maybe Jackson’s crash into the wall knocked some strike outs out of him as we really need him to fill an outfield spot next year, especially if Hoystein is able to trade Soriano.

Definately good news on Jackson and Rizzo. I have been wondering how the Astros pitcher is doing after getting hit in the face the other night. Hope he is okay, too. Glad to be back at Wrigley. Go Cubs.

from 7/1 to 8/27, #Cubs Starlin Castro hit .240 w/.694 OPS. Since signing new contract on 8/28, he’s batting .308 w/.828 OPS. lol nice stat Carrie. Do you know if Soler is going to be in the lineup tomorrow or just taking BP?

Chico, did I miss that Soler has been called up to Wrigley???

I guess. Again, not sure if he’s doing anything other than BP like Almora did today but he’ll be at Wrigley.

pretty sure Almora and Soler and just up to get a look in practice/bp/ etc… they weren’t “called up” as far as I know
