St. Louis Cardinals infielder Paul DeJong is not in the starting lineup for Friday afternoon's series opener against right-hander Kyle Hendricks and the Chicago Cubs.
DeJong will receive an extra day of rest following Thursday's scheduled day off. Edmundo Sosa is playing shortstop and hitting eighth while Tommy Edman covers second base and hits sixth.
