5/3 Feldman vs. Rangers
On Monday night at Wrigley Field, the Cubs will play the Rangers in a makeup game. Scott Feldman is scheduled to face his former teammates that night.
“I wanted to pitch against them last time [during original April series] and I had the thing flare up with my back,” Feldman said. “I’ll try not to make it anything that it’s not and treat it like another game. It’ll be kind of weird pitching against them. Hopefully, I can pitch a good game and we can beat them.”
Feldman came up in the Rangers organization, and signed a one-year contract with the Cubs this offseason. He knows their hitters well.
“I’ve seen a lot of those guys for a lot of years, and they’ve seen me for a lot of years, so it’s not going to be a big thing of trying to trick everybody,” he said. “I’ll take some of the stuff I’ve remembered over the years, and look at video from what they’ve done recently because guys make adjustments all the time.”
