8/25 Cubs lineup

Welington Castillo is back in the Cubs lineup Sunday for the series finale against the Padres. Castillo has been bothered by sore ribs, which he injured making an awkward throw last weekend in the Cardinals’ series. Castillo said he’s not 100 percent healthy but he can play.

Chris Rusin enters the game with a 3.08 ERA, tied with the Dodgers’ Hyun-Jin Ryu for the third-lowest earned run average of any rookie left-handed starting pitcher this season. Rusin trails only Atlanta’s Alex Wood (2.50) and Cincinnati’s Tony Cingrani (2.76).

A win Sunday, and the Cubs would secure their first season series win vs. the Padres since going 5-2 in 2008.
