Cubs Vs. Twins Lineups: David DeJesus Batting Third Again On Sunday

Chicago Cubs manager Dale Sveum has been fishing for any solution to jump start the team's season, and his latest tactic as far as the batting order goes is to stick one-time leadoff hitter David DeJesus in the three-hole. It's as good of an idea as any, as DeJesus has been one of the team's most consistent hitters all year.

Here are today's lineups for both the Cubs and the Minnesota Twins:

Cubs

  1. Reed Johnson, LF
  2. Starlin Castro, SS
  3. David DeJesus, RF
  4. Alfonso Soriano, DH
  5. Jeff Baker, 1B
  6. Joe Mather, CF
  7. Darwin Barney, 2B
  8. Ian Stewart, 3B
  9. Koyie Hill, C

Twins

  1. Denard Span, CF
  2. Ben Revere, RF
  3. Joe Mauer, DH
  4. Josh Willingham, LF
  5. Justin Morneau, 1B
  6. Trevor Plouffe, 3B
  7. Brian Dozier, SS
  8. Drew Butera, C
  9. Jamey Carroll, 2B
