Astros Vs. Cubs Lineups: Young Guys Going On Monday

There isn't going to be a ton of experience on the field Monday night in Wrigley Field, as the Chicago Cubs and Houston Astros try to go young for the remainder of the season. Neither team is competing for a playoff spot at this point, so they're essentially using the next few weeks to offer opportunities to younger players.

For the Cubs, Josh Vitters is going at third base, Welington Castillo is behind the plate and Brett Jackson is in center field, while the incumbent young guys like Starlin Castro, Darwin Barney and Anthony Rizzo are also playing. The Astros have their standard array of young players going, including Jose Altuve and Brett Wallace.

1. David DeJesus (L) RF
2. Josh Vitters (R) 3B
3. Anthony Rizzo (L) 1B
4. Alfonso Soriano (R) LF
5. Starlin Castro (R) SS
6. Welington Castillo (R) C
7. Brett Jackson (L) CF
