#Cubs lineup & Arrieta update
Jason Hammel will start Sunday against the Mariners at Sloan Park in Mesa. The game will be broadcast on Comcast SportsNet and also 670 AM. Here’s the lineup:
Could this be a regular season lineup?
“Playing around — just playing around,” Maddon said of the batting order. “There’s nothing to be read into it, honestly. Just playing around with different thoughts.”
*Looking ahead, Kyle Hendricks will start Monday against the Angels in Tempe, and Jake Arrieta is on track to start Tuesday against the A’s. Arrieta threw 46 pitches in a bullpen session on Sunday, and is on schedule to start Opening Night April 4.
