After hitting the Cubs' first pinch-hit homer of the season Friday, Joe Mather gets the start in center field Saturday against the Dodgers.

Manager Dale Sveum also has used Tony Campana and Reed Johnson in center since the trade of Marlon Byrd to the Red Sox.

Chris Volstad starts for the Cubs in place of Matt Garza, who is ill with flu-like symptoms. Garza is scheduled to start Sunday, although the Cubs have backup plans if he can't.
