Cubs' Javier Baez (thumb) scratched on Sunday, Eric Sogard to start against Cardinals

Chicago Cubs infielder Javier Baez (thumb) has been scratched from Sunday's game against the St. Louis Cardinals.

What It Means:

Baez's thumb injury is reportedly acting up following a diving play in Saturday's game and he has been removed for precautionary reasons. Sergio Alcantara will move from second base to shortstop with Eric Sogard entering the lineup at second base. Sogard will bat seventh versus right-hander Carlos Martinez and the Cardinals.

The Cubs implied team total of 4.71 runs is the eleventh-highest team total on Sunday's 'All Day' slate, according to numberFire's DFS Heat Map.
