Chicago Cubs Line Up: New Look On Sunday For Cubs

The Chicago Cubs have a chance on Sunday to win their first series of 2012, but manager Dale Sveum has decided to run out a few of his bench players as he looks to give some regulars a few days of rest with an off-day coming up on Monday. Sveum has also loaded his line up with righties, which is likely a reaction to St. Louis Cardinals righty starter Jake Westbrook putting up reverse splits last season.

Here's today's full line up:

  1. Reed Johnson, RF
  2. Blake DeWitt, 2B
  3. Starlin Castro, SS
  4. Jeff Baker, 1B
  5. Ian Stewart, 3B
  6. Joe Mather, LF
  7. Geovany Soto, C
  8. Marlon Byrd, CF
  9. Paul Maholm, P
