Cubs postpone home opener vs. Pirates due to snow

Preview: Brewers vs. Cubs

In the Sunday game, Harrison managed a pair of hits and a run while Gregory Polanco hit a two-run homer.

Rizzo said his low back tightness has been getting better each day and right now, it's just a matter of ensuring this doesn't linger throughout the next six-plus months. A number of these new branding and service elements were on display when the Cubs took on the Pittsburgh Pirates in their home opener on 9 April. Nova hasn't been able to put it together yet this season, failing to post a quality start in either of his two outings in 2018.

The Cubs enter Monday's home opener having won three of their past four games after Sunday's 3-0 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers. As of Sunday, he was considered doubtful for Monday's series opener against the Pirates.

Chicago first baseman Anthony Rizzo was out of the starting lineup when it was announced Monday. "It's just we have to get the field clear - obviously you don't want anyone to slip and fall".

Rizzo said the discomfort surfaced during Monday's loss to the Reds. You can't play (Monday) and set myself back five to six days.

He was trying to drive from Finland to Belgium, where he had been living since fleeing to escape arrest in Spain . Puigdemont left jail in Germany on Friday after a court said he could be released on bail.

"On the way out I had no idea if I was going to Cubs Convention or opening day", Chicago manager Joe Maddon cracked.

Rizzo said he's gradually felt better since Friday.

Nine games into the season, Maddon isn't ready to take any chances.

"Honestly, at this point, I'm not overtly concerned", Maddon said. "I'm okay if it's not [Monday], just because we have the off day and then it really gives him a full opportunity to rest it". Chatwood allowed one earned run, four hits and six walks in six innings in his first start against Cincinnati while striking out four.

Meanwhile, Tyler Chatwood will make his second start of the season and his Wrigley Field debut for the Cubs on Monday. He conceded 10 runs in 16.2 innings against the Cubs last season, and he owns a 2-1 record with a 4.09 ERA in 22 career innings against Chicago.
