2/27 Opening Day in Cactus League

It’s Opening Day for the Cubs and new manager Rick Renteria. The forecast is for sunshine and temps in the 70s. Jeff Samardzija gets the start against the Diamondbacks at new Cubs Park. Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts and Mesa Mayor Scott Smith will throw out ceremonial first pitches. The game will be on WGN-TV, MLB.TV and you can listen on Cubs.com. Here’s the lineup:

Emilio Bonifacio 2B
Luis Valbuena 3B
Starlin Castro SS
Anthony Rizzo 1B
Junior Lake CF
Welington Castillo C
Justin Ruggiano LF
Mike Olt DH
Darnell McDonald RF

Olt is limited to DH duties for now because of some tenderness in his right shoulder. He says it’s normal this time of year.
