ST LOUIS: 2017 83-79, third place
MANAGER Mike Matheny (seventh season)
ADDITIONS: LF Marcell Ozuna, RHP Miles Mikolas, RHP Luke Gregerson, RHP Bud Norris, INF-OF Yairo Munoz
SUBTRACTIONS: RHP Lance Lynn, OF Stephen Piscotty, OF Randal Grichuk, RHP Seung-hwan Oh, RHP Juan Nicasio, SS Aledmys Diaz, RHP Trevor Rosenthal
OUTLOOK: The Cardinals have had one losing season since the start of the century, but they are facing immense pressure from fans after finishing behind the Cubs and Brewers in 2017. St. Louis missed the playoffs for a second consecutive year, the first time that's happened since 2007-2008. For the Cardinals to snap that postseason "drought," they'll need bounce-back seasons from several players -- including a healthy Wainwright on the mound and Carpenter at the plate. Few expect the Cardinals to cede the NL Central title to Chicago for a third consecutive year without putting up a fight, but St. Louis will need Ozuna and Pham to produce as expected. If they do, and the Cardinals can bring along their reworked pitching staff, the potential for a return to the playoffs is there.
CHICAGO CUBS: 017 92-70, first place, lost to Dodgers in NLCS
MANAGER Joe Maddon (fourth season)
ADDITIONS: RHP Yu Darvish, RHP Brandon Morrow, RHP Tyler Chatwood, RHP Steve Cishek, LHP Drew Smyly, C Chris Gimenez
SUBTRACTIONS: RHP Wade Davis, C Alex Avila, C Rene Rivera, RHP Jake Arrieta, RHP John Lackey
OUTLOOK: World Series or bust. The acquisition of Darvish, who finalized a $126 million, six-year contract in February, gives Chicago a strong rotation, and the lineup is young, deep and dangerous. A franchise-record six players (Rizzo, Schwarber, Bryant, Happ, Baez and Contreras) belted at least 20 home runs last year, including a major league-record five in an age 25 or younger season. Chicago also scored more than 800 runs in consecutive seasons for the first time since the team surpassed that mark for three consecutive years from 1929-1931. The Cubs have made it to the NL Championship Series for three consecutive seasons, winning it all in 2016 to end a 108-year drought, and there's no reason to think they won't be in the mix for another title this year.
Cubs hope starters begin finding groove vs. Cardinals

CHICAGO -- As the Chicago Cubs work toward establishing more consistency in what has been a sluggish start, manager Joe Maddon firmly believes it's just a matter of time before his starting rotation finds its footing.

Cubs starters have routinely put pressure on the bullpen by struggling to work deep into games. But as the Cubs welcome their National League Central rivals, the St. Louis Cardinals, to Wrigley Field for a three-game series starting Monday, Maddon is remaining patient.

Tyler Chatwood will start Monday against the Cardinals after his scheduled start Sunday against Atlanta was postponed because of inclement weather. Chatwood (0-2, 4.91 ERA) is seeking his first win with the Cubs after he dropped his first two outings against the Cincinnati Reds and the Milwaukee Brewers.

Chatwood, who won 20 games in the past two seasons with the Colorado Rockies, signed a three-year, $38 million contract with the Cubs in the offseason. Chatwood is 0-2 in four career appearances (one start) against St. Louis.

Chatwood has pitched at least five innings in his first two starts. On Monday, he hopes to improve on the effort of fellow starter Jose Quintana, who allowed seven runs in 2 1/3 innings in Saturday's 14-10 come-from-behind Cubs victory over the Braves.

"We haven't gotten any depth (from starters)," Maddon said Saturday. "We're surviving it and I look at that as a positive because they're so good and they're going to turn it on and they're going to get on a nice little roll."

The Cubs are also expected to welcome All-Star first baseman Anthony Rizzo back from the 10-day disabled list. Rizzo has been out with back tightness, but Maddon said twice during the weekend that he expects Rizzo to be healthy enough to play starting Monday.

The Cardinals, who will enter this week's series fresh off a sweep of Cincinnati after Sunday's 3-2 victory over the Reds, also expect to be getting healthier as they face the Cubs.

Infielder Jedd Gyorko and reliever Luke Gregerson could rejoin the Cardinals this week, manager Mike Matheny told reporters on Saturday.

Gyorko has been out with a right hamstring strain and has been playing in extended spring training games recently in Florida. Gregerson suffered a strained left hamstring during the final week of spring training and recently made his fourth minor league rehabilitation appearance on April 13, according to MLB.com.

"We're still figuring out the exact details, but (Gyorko) might be back here sooner rather than later," Matheny told reporters on Saturday.

Adam Wainwright (0-2, 5.06 ERA) will start for the Cardinals. He is coming off a strong seven-inning effort in which he struck out four and didn't allow a walk while scattering eight hits against Milwaukee. Wainwright is 14-9 with a 4.03 ERA in 34 career starts against the Cubs.

Wainwright, who is in the final year of his contract at age 36, demonstrated in his most recent start that he's capable of helping the Cardinals move in the right direction.

"That's how I pitched all spring training," Wainwright told reporters after his start against the Brewers on April 11. "(The first start of the year) was the anomaly -- not this one. I expect to go out and carry us deep into games."
