The Cardinals' most consistent starter in the early going, Weaver roared out of the gate after a strong spring. Now the righty (2-0, 2.08) eyes his first career win against the rival Cubs.

Lester did not get a decision last time out, giving up four earned runs on seven hits in five innings. He was most bothered by three walks and said he needs to "clean that up." Lester was 2-1 with a 2.93 ERA in five starts vs. St. Louis last year.

Finnegan's season debut was rocky as he allowed a pair of two-out home runs and could not work out of the fifth inning. Following a one-out walk in the fifth, he was pulled. It was his first start since June 26, 2017.

Bailey delivered the rotation's first seven-inning start of 2018 in a 3-2 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday. The one mistake was leaving a 1-0 pitch over the middle of the plate for Harrison Bader to hit a two-run homer in the second inning.

Few pitchers are on more of a roll than Martinez, who has held opponents to one run over his last 21 1/3 IP. The Cards flipped Martinez and Miles Mikolas following Wednesday’s postponement to ensure Martinez started on just one extra day of rest.
