Cubs Vs. Mariners Preview: Travis Wood Hoping To Improve Against Seattle

The Chicago Cubs (7-11) send SP Travis Wood to the mound, hoping the young lefty can improve against the Seattle Mariners (11-6).

Wood has played in two games so far this Spring Training, giving up 1 run in his first outing, but allowing 5 ER in his second game -- in which he lasted only 1 out. Wood came to the Cubs in the RP Sean Marshall trade last December. The 25-year-old is among several pitchers vying for a position at the bottom of the team's rotation.

Here is a look at today's lineups courtesy of MLB.com:

RF David DeJesus
2B Darwin Barney (back from his strained left side)
SS Starlin Castro
LF Alfonso Soriano
3B Jeff Baker
CF Marlon Byrd
DH Reed Johnson
1B Joe Mather
C Welington Castillo

Game Time: 3:05 p.m. CDT

Location: Peoria Stadium, Peoria, AZ
