Probable Starting Pitchers

It will be another tough task for Chicago Cubs rookie starting pitcher Hayden Wesneski as he will face the San Diego Padres at Wrigley Field on Thursday afternoon. Wesneski has struggled to look comfortable on the mound during the 2023 Major League Baseball regular season and his last start against the Los Angeles Dodgers was further indication of that. Wesneski was unable to go five innings as he allowed 3 runs on 5 hits and 1 walk while only striking out one batter. Wesneski's slider is such an important piece to his ability to have success and miss hitters' bats and he hasn't had command of the pitch all season. That will need to change moving forward if he is to remain in the starting rotation once Kyle Hendricks is ready to return.

Making the start for the Padres on Thursday afternoon will be Seth Lugo. Lugo was rumored to be a potential Cubs' target this past offseason and has posted a 2.78 ERA through his first four starts of the season.
