Nico Hoerner

Chicago Cubs shortstop Nico Hoerner throws to first base during the first inning of a spring training baseball game against the Colorado Rockies Tuesday, March 3, in Scottsdale, Ariz.

For the most part, the Cubs’ 2020 starting lineup is solidified.

Aside from the center field battle between Albert Almora, Jr. and Steven Souza, Jr., just about every position has been locked down, assuming Kyle Schwarber and Jayson Heyward will man the corner outfield positions. As for the infield, it starts with Willson Contreras behind the dish, Anthony Rizzo at first, Javier Baez at shortstop and Kris Bryant – for now – at third.
