More Cactus League action, this time at Sloan Park against the Cubs. The A’s have dropped their last two games.


  1. Marcus Semien, SS
  2. Matt Joyce, RF
  3. Jed Lowrie, 2B
  4. Khris Davis, LF
  5. Matt Olson, 1B
  6. Stephen Piscotty, DH
  7. Dustin Fowler, CF
  8. Chad Pinder, 3B
  9. Bruce Maxwell, C

Paul Blackburn gets the start, and Daniel Mengden is scheduled to relieve him. The Cubs are starting Kyle Hendricks.


  • Fowler in there again!
  • Pinder starting at his fourth position of the spring (2B, SS, 3B, LF)
  • Semien in the leadoff spot — might he be a candidate for that role during the season?
