Valaika is out of the lineup Monday against the Cardinals.
Valaika has seen relatively consistent work for the Cubs at first and second base during the final month of the season, but will take a seat for the Monday night contest. Arismendy Alcantara will take over at the keystone, while Ryan Kalish mans center field. Valaika batted below .200 over his first month with the club, but has raised his season average 40 points after hitting .280 in September.
