Piniella to shake up Cubs lineup

Posted on: April 19, 2010 12:38 pm

Dave van Dyck of the Chicago Tribune reports Cubs manager Lou Piniella plans to shake up the lineup.

Against lefties, look for Marlon Byrd to lead off, Jeff Baker to bat second, Xavier Nady to hit fourth and Geovany Soto and Ryan Theriot to bat before the pitcher.

"We're going to change this lineup around and see if we can spur the offense a little bit," Piniella said after the Cubs dropped Sunday's game to Astros.
