Cubs Vs. Reds Lineups: Chicago Gets Ready To Take On Bronson Arroyo

As rumors continue to swirl that the front office is working on a new long-term deal for star shortstop Starlin Castro, it's business as usual with the lineup card for Friday night's game between the Chicago Cubs and the Cincinnati Reds.

The Reds are coming off a lopsided loss to the New York Mets, but will be sending the always-formidable Bronson Arroyo to the mound on Friday. The Cubs will hope that they can play a bit of spoiler as they field their best lineup against him.

1. David DeJesus (L) RF
2. Darwin Barney (R) 2B
3. Anthony Rizzo (L) 1B
4. Alfonso Soriano (R) LF
5. Starlin Castro (R) SS
6. Luis Valbuena (L) 3B
7. Brett Jackson (L) CF
8. Steve Clevenger (L) C
