Almora Jr. CF
Caratini C (first start of the year)
These teams have already played 4 innings' worth of games, but they will go for the quick turnaround today. I'm frankly shocked to see so many regulars in there today – if any day calls for a Schwarber day off, it's this one. Quintana is a flyball pitcher, and Peters is a lefty. If I were the manager, Baez would be the SS, Zobrist would be the 2B, Happ would be the LF, and Almora would be the CF (Rizzo and Bryant would almost never sit under any circumstance). In the scheme of things, it's relatively unimportant.
What is important is for Quintana to go as deep as he possibly can. If the Cubs can avoid using more than 2 relievers, I'll feel really good about this game (assuming we win).
