Cubs Vs. Brewers Starting Lineups: Anthony Rizzo Returns On Monday

After getting a day off to clear his head, the Chicago Cubs have first baseman Anthony Rizzo back in the starting lineup as they kick off a series against the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday night.

The 23-year-old first baseman has struggled of late after a strong start to his Cubs career, but his overall numbers are still solid. Bryan LaHair got the nod in Chicago's series finale against the Reds, but he's back on the bench now.

Justin Germano is making his fifth start of the year for the Cubs since being acquired in July. He's pitched well so far in a Chicago uniform, posting a 3.91 ERA with 15 strikeouts and five walks over 25.1 innings.
