The Chicago Cubs take on the San Francisco Giants on Sunday in their second Spring Training game of the year. While it's still very early in the spring, the lineup, and who is being sent out to play on Sunday, highlights quite a few questions that are surrounding the club.

Happ came up through the system as a second baseman. He played there for a while in 2017. In 2018, he saw almost no time at 2B. On Sunday he's getting the start there as the Cubs figure out how to make their lineup work.
