With Darwin Barney out of action for a couple of games due to the birth of his third child, the Chicago Cubs have called up Arismendy Alcantara to fill his role until he returns. Yes, he will only he here for a couple of days, this is still Barney’s job no matter how good Alcantara does. He will likely be sent back to Iowa, unless they send down a reliever.
That being said, here is how I want to see the lineup these next two days.
CF- Arismendy Alcantara
RF- Justin Ruggiano
1B- Anthony Rizzo
SS- Starlin Castro
3B- Mike Olt
2B- Luis Valbuena
C- Welington Castillo
LF- Chris Coghlan
P- Dallas Beeler/Kyle Hendricks
Whether or not Rick Renteria listens to me or not remains to be seen. But this is exactly how I think the lineup should look these next two games against the Cincinnati Reds.
