#Cubs lineup: Bryant RF, Zo leadoff man

Jake Arrieta starts Sunday in the Cubs’ series finale against the D-backs, and there will be a little different lineup at Chase Field. Here’s the lineup:

Zobrist 2B

Heyward CF

Bryant RF

Rizzo 1B

Soler LF

La Stella 3B

Montero C

Russell SS

Arrieta P

Dexter Fowler does lead the National League in on-base percentage (.625) but he’s also a little banged up after the collision with Kyle Schwarber on Thursday night. Joe Maddon has talked about how he can use Tommy La Stella at third, and also how versatile the lineup is. Sunday will be a good test of that versatility with Kris Bryant in right and Jason Heyward in center.
