Eric Sogard leads off at shortstop as he continues a push to take a roster spot, followed by Jake Marisnick, who is cementing his spot as a solid backup outfielder, in center. Anthony Rizzo is at first, David Bote cleans up at third, Jason Heyward is in right, and Nico Hoerner is at second. Cameron Maybin is in left and P.J. Higgins rounds things out at catcher.
Alec Mills hasn’t been spectacular this spring, but he still seems to have a solid grasp on a starting spot the way things have gone so far. This outing should give him the chance to stretch out a little more and get into more of a rhythm.
First pitch is set for 3:05pm CT on Marquee Sports Network, MLB Network, and 670 The Score.
