#Cubs lineup and early notes
John Lackey makes his second spring start on Wednesday when the Cubs travel to Surprise to face the Royals. He’ll also get a chance to hit — this will be the Cubs’ first game without using the DH this spring. Here’s the lineup:
Wednesday’s game will be broadcast on Cubs.com and also on Comcast SportsNet.
Looking ahead, Jason Hammel will start Thursday at Sloan Park when the Cubs play host to the D-Backs. That game will be broadcast on ESPN. The Cubs also will play a B game at 10 a.m. Arizona time at Talking Stick against the Rockies on Thursday. Trevor Cahill, Adam Warren and Stephen Fife are scheduled to pitch in that game.
Pitching probables: Kyle Hendricks will start Friday when the Cubs face the White Sox in Glendale, and Pierce Johnson will start Saturday night against the Indians in Goodyear. Jake Arrieta will pitch in a Minor League game Saturday at Sloan Park.
