Eric Sogard at shortstop for Cubs against Cleveland
Chicago Cubs infielder Eric Sogard will play shortstop and hit ninth in Tuesday's interleague game against right-hander Shane Bieber and the Cleveland Indians.
Javier Baez was initially set to return on Tuesday but he was scratched from the lineup due to ongoing tightness in his lower back. Ildemargo Vargas will start on second base and David Bote will serve as the Cubs' designated hitter. Jason Heyward will bat sixth after having to leave Sunday's game for a hand injury.
