Cubs lineup: Bonifacio at 2nd, Olt sits

By Jesse Rogers

PITTSBURHGH -- Emilio Bonifacio leads off again and plays second base as Chicago Cubs manager Rick Renteria is clearing his bench in Game 2 of the season as his team takes on righty Charlie Morton of the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday evening.

Here is the entire lineup:
1. Bonfiacio, 2B
2. Luis Valbuena, 3B
3. Starlin Castro, SS
4. Anthony Rizzo, 1B
5. Nate Schierholtz, RF
6. Ryan Sweeney, CF
7. Welington Castillo, C
8. Ryan Kalish, LF
9. Edwin Jackson, P

Four of the nine didn’t start in Game 1 on Monday including Valbuena, Sweeney and Kalish. This will be Kalish’s first game action in the majors since 2012 with the Boston Red Sox.

Mike Olt and Darwin Barney are both sitting against the righty Morton. Renteria hasn’t declared a platoon situation at second or third base but he did intimate the switch-hitting Bonifacio will play a lot. He had four hits, playing center field, in his Cubs debut on Monday.
