KEY GAME INFORMATION
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.
PITTSBURGH: 2017 75-87, fourth place
MANAGER Clint Hurdle (seventh season)
ADDITIONS: OF Corey Dickerson, LHP Kyle Crick, RHP Joe Musgrove, RHP Michael Feliz, 3B Colin Moran
SUBTRACTIONS: CF Andrew McCutchen, RHP Gerrit Cole, RHP Daniel Hudson, C Chris Stewart, 1B John Jaso, RHP Joaquin Benoit
OUTLOOK: General Manager Neal Huntington insists the Pirates are not rebuilding, but it certainly looks that way after they flipped franchise cornerstones McCutchen and Cole for less expensive and less proven talent. The Pirates did nothing in free agency, though they were able to grab Dickerson -- an All-Star for Tampa Bay last season -- in February. Dickerson's arrival gives Pittsburgh some stability in the outfield, but the Pirates still have some serious power issues outside of Bell, who finished third in NL Rookie of the Year voting. Pittsburgh finished 29th in the majors in home runs in 2017, and while McCutchen and Dickerson's numbers are comparable, the rest of the lineup isn't exactly imposing. If Marte can put his suspension-marred 2017 behind him, if Polanco and his hamstrings can stay healthy, if Moran proves he can do more than spell Freese at third, and if Taillon, Kuhl and Williams all improve, Pittsburgh could be competitive. That's a lot of "ifs," probably a few too many.
PREVIEW
Cubs-Pirates Preview
 

So far, not so good for the Pittsburgh Pirates in what could be a telling stretch of 10 games against fellow National League Central contenders.

Going into a series opener Monday against the Chicago Cubs at PNC Park, Pittsburgh has lost seven of nine, including two in a row against St. Louis in a three-game home series.

It's the first time the Pirates have lost two in a row against a divisional opponent -- and there are more of those games upcoming. After three against the Cubs, Pittsburgh goes to St. Louis for four more against the Cardinals.

The Pirates are struggling to get all parts of their game going at once. On Sunday, their bullpen faltered as they blew a three-run lead in a 6-4 loss to the Cardinals.

"You give these young men an opportunity to pitch. To think they're going to pitch perfect, clean innings for an entire season, you're pretty naive," Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle said of his young bullpen.

"There are going to be challenges the league's going to throw at them, that hitters are going to throw at them."

In addition, after Sunday's game it was learned that closer Felipe Vazquez, who had his third blown save in as many opportunities, has left forearm discomfort.

The Pirates already were without catcher Francisco Cervelli, who had flu symptoms, and starter Ivan Nova is questionable for his Tuesday turn against the Cubs because of a ligament problem in his pitching index finger.

Pittsburgh (28-24) has exceeded many predictions by contending in the NL Central through two months but has fallen to fourth.

The Pirates will have one advantage Monday over the third-place Cubs (27-22). Chicago played a national TV game Sunday night -- an 8-3 win over San Francisco, breaking open a game that was tied 3-3 after the first inning -- and had to then travel late that night and play an early afternoon game on the Memorial Day holiday.

Chicago had lost three of four before Sunday.

Chicago left-hander Mike Montgomery (0-1, 5.33 ERA) is scheduled to face Pittsburgh right-hander Chad Kuhl (4-2, 4.20) on Monday.

Montgomery will be making a spot start. He has pitched 25 1/3 innings in relief, the most among Chicago relievers.

The Cubs' rotation is in upheaval with Yu Darvish going on the 10-day disabled list because of right triceps tendinitis.

Originally, Tyler Chatwood was on target to start Monday, but he filled in for Darvish on Sunday night.

Montgomery last season was 5-5 with a 4.15 ERA in 14 starts. He was supposed to get a start May 19, but it was wiped out because of a rain postponement a couple of nights earlier that changed the rotation.

"It's a long year," Montgomery said then. "The next time something pops up, I'll be ready for that, too."

Darvish's injury has popped up, but Montgomery already was tailoring himself to be called upon should a starting spot open.

"I have to put myself in a position to be in that conversation, and I've done that the last couple of weeks," he said. "To keep doing that moving forward is what I'm focused on."

Montgomery is 1-0 with a 1.98 ERA in six career appearances (one start) against Pittsburgh.

Kuhl is 3-1 in his past seven starts. At PNC Park, he is 2-0 with a 4.28 ERA in five starts, with the Pirates 4-1 in those games.

One of those no-decisions and team wins came Wednesday, when Pittsburgh beat Cincinnati 5-4 in 12 innings. Kuhl pitched six-plus innings, giving up one run (on a homer) and five hits with six strikeouts and one walk.

Against the Cubs, Kuhl is 1-4 with an 8.23 ERA in seven career starts.
