Jose Quintana, the Cubs’ is scheduled to make his first postseason start. Quintana is a left-handed pitcher, 7-3 with a 3.74 ERA in 14 starts. Quintana was acquired from the White Sox in a rare all-Windy City trade.
National League Cy Young Award-winner Max Scherzer is scheduled for Game 3 after a minor right hamstring injury delayed his post-season appearance.
The White Sox traded pitcher Jose Quintana to the Cubs in exchange for four minor leaguers — power-hitting outfielder Eloy Jimenez, pitcher Dylan Cease, first baseman Matt Rose and middle infielder Bryant Flete.
Today is Scherzer’s first postseason road start with the Washington Nationals.
Here is today's #Cubs starting lineup.
