New Cubs catcher Rene Rivera will start on Sunday as the team sent rookie Victor Caratini to Triple A Iowa to make room for him. According to ESPN Stats and Info, Rivera is immediately the best pitch framer on the team, a skill which could come in handy on Sunday when Kyle Hendricks starts. He works the edges as well as anyone. Albert Almora Jr leads off against righty Marco Estrada who's been much tougher on lefties this season. Righties have a .366 OBP off him this year. Kris Bryant and Jason Heyward get the day off. Tommy La Stella starts at third, Jon Jay is in RF.
