#Cubs lineup vs Reds
Jon Lester will start the Cubs home opener Monday night when they play host to the Reds at Wrigley Field. Here’s the lineup:
Prior to the game, the Cubs acquired left-handed pitcher Giovanni Soto from the Indians on Monday for a cash consideration. To make room on the 40-man roster, Kyle Schwarber was transferred to the 60-day disabled list.
Soto, 24, who was optioned to Triple-A Iowa, made his Major League debut with the Indians last season and threw six scoreless relief appearances, covering 3 1/3 innings pitched. He held opponents to a .231 batting average.
