FILe – In this Sept. 27, 2017, file photo, Chicago Cubs starting pitcher John Lackey throws during the first inning of a baseball game against the St. Louis Cardinals, in St. Louis. Lackey is on the reigning World Series champion Cubs’ roster for their NL Division Series against the Washington Nationals. Lackey was not among the starting pitchers that Cubs manager Joe Maddon had announced for the NLDS that begins in Washington on Friday night, so his status was in doubt. (AP Photo/Jeff Roberson)
