3/22 Cubs lineup vs. Reds

Edwin Jackson gets the start on Saturday when the Cubs play host to the Reds at Cubs Park in Mesa. Mike Olt, trying to lock up a spot on the Opening Day roster, will make his second start at third base. Luis Valbuena showed his power on Friday, hitting two home runs in a 7-0 win over the White Sox. We’ll get an update on Javier Baez, who bruised his right heel running to first base on Friday in Glendale. Also, Starlin Castro may get some at-bats in the Cubs’ Minor League games in Mesa. The Triple-A and Double-A teams are facing the Giants squads on Saturday.

The Cubs-Reds game will be on WGN-TV and WGN Radio. Here’s the lineup:

Barney 2B
Ruggiano LF
Rizzo 1B
Olt 3B
Schierholtz RF
Castillo C
Sweeney CF
Murphy SS
E. Jackson P

* If you’re coming to Saturday’s game, please take a moment to check out the Cubs Wives mystery baseball fundraiser in the left field corner, located inside the ballpark. For $30, fans can purchase an autographed baseball. You also can check out some game-used items to purchase. Proceeds go to Paz de Cristo in Mesa.
