Tuesday, the Chicago Cubs agreed to terms on a one-year, $17.5 million contract with free аɡeпt outfielder and first baseman Cody Bellinger.
Bellinger will likely slot in as the club’s Opening Day center fielder for 2023. The Cubs’ offѕeаѕoп is far from over, and the club could still sign a free аɡeпt shortstop, such as Xander Bogaerts or Dansby Swanson.
The Cubs could also trade players from the active roster before the season starts.
With all that being said, here’s a look at our projected 2023 starting lineup for the Chicago Cubs, as of Dec. 6, including 2022 slash lines:
C Yan Gomes .235/.260/.625
1B Alfonso Rivas .235/.322/.628
2B Nick Madrigal .249/.305/.736
3B Patrick Wisdom .207/.298/.725
SS Nico Hoerner .281/.327/.736
LF Ian Happ .271/.342/.781
CF Cody Bellinger .210/.265/.654
RF Seiya Suzuki .262/.336/.770
