Lineup Prediction

Paul Arriola isn’t listed on the injury report but Coach Nico called him day-to-day. I feel confident he can at least be on the bench and I will predict Arriola is back in the lineup. Jesus Ferreira should also return.

I will also predict an Edwin Cerrillo return, nothing Facundo Quignon did made me think he will keep the spot.

I would very much like Paxton Pomykal to get a game off soon. Not sure this is the day, but it needs to happen, in my opinion.
