Chicago Cubs Lineup (8/2/22): Contreras DH, Happ Batting Cleanup…For Now
I’m not going to put much into this one because it will almost certainly change, but Willson Contreras and Ian Happ are both in lineup as of now. Make of that what you will and we’ll update this as necessary ahead of the game in St. Louis.
Rafael Ortega is set to lead off in center, followed by Contreras at DH and Seiya Suzuki in right. Happ is in left, Nico Hoerner is the shortstop, Patrick Wisdom is at third, and Frank Schwindel is at first. Yan Gomes is the catcher and newly-acquired Zach McKinstry gets the start at second with Keegan Thompson on the mound.
First pitch is scheduled for 6:45pm CT, less than two hours after the trade deadline, on Marquee Sports Network and 670 The Score.
No one will be more shocked than me if this is the lineup they use tonight. https://t.co/HYADuJJbto
