Hey there! Remember everything about how Javier Baez was going to be batting second? Well, scratch that because Albert Almora Jr. is feeling better after missing a few games with an illness and now he’s batting second in the Cubs lineup against the Atlanta Braves on Saturday.
Ian Happ remains the leadoff man, while Baez slides down to sixth in the batting order against lefty Sean Newcomb.
Albert Almora Jr. is feeling better and will start today.

As far as the game and if it will be played, Joe Maddon believes it will get in.
Maddon: "We should be able to play today. It’s always about precipitation. It’s not about the elements." Infield currently covered as groundscrew workers using blowers in attempt to dry area in shallow left field.

It’s going to be yet another windy day at Wrigley Field though.
