R. Acuña Jr. - CF
Acuna went 1-for-3 with a walk, two-run home run and two runs scored Thursday against the Phillies.
V. Caratini - C
Caratini will not start at first base Thursday against the Cardinals as anticipated.
A. Rizzo - 1B
Rizzo (ankle) was added to the lineup for Thursday's game against the Cardinals.
It was thought that Rizzo was still a few days away from being ready to play, but he worked out prior to Thursday's game without issue, so the Cubs felt comfortable getting him back in the lineup right away. Rizzo will lead off and play first base in his return.
