#Cubs lineup vs Reds
Tsuyoshi Wada gets the start Thursday night as the Cubs open a six-game homestand against the Reds. Here’s the lineup:
* The Reds are beat up. On Thursday, they placed shortstop Zach Cozart on the DL and recalled from Class AAA Louisville infielder Chris Dominguez and infielder Eugenio Suarez. RHP Pedro Villarreal was optioned to Louisville.
Cozart was injured Wednesday when he suffered tears of the anterior cruciate and lateral collateral ligaments and the biceps tendon in his right knee. He was expected to have surgery Monday and the rehab will take approximately nine months.
The Reds already have been dealing with injuries to Brandon Phillips (groin) and Billy Hamilton (wrist). Both are listed as day to day.
* The Cubs have won four of five meetings against the Reds this season, including two out of three at Wrigley from April 13-15.
