(CBS) Mired in a deep slump, Cubs infielder Javier Baez will take a seat in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series.
Ben Zobrist will start at second base Tuesday night as Baez has started the playoffs in an 0-of-19 skid. Elsewhere, the Cubs will go with an all-lefty outfield with Dodgers right-hander Yu Darvish on the mound, with Kyle Schwarber in left field, Jon Jay in center and Jason Heyward in right.
Maddon has also shuffled the order a bit, inserting Schwarber in the second spot and pushing Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo to third and fourth in the order, respectively.
The Cubs will start right-hander Kyle Hendricks, who didn’t make a start against the Dodgers this season. Darvish didn’t face the Cubs either.
