After missing six consecutive starts because of a hand injury, second baseman Addison Russell will return to the Cubs lineup Tuesday night against the Rockies at Coors Field.

Russell has played once since hurting his hand June 4, playing the final three innings of Saturday’s 9-4 win over the Cardinals.

Catcher Willson Contreras returns to the lineup to catch left-hander Jose Quintana. The Cubs will try to solve rookie Peter Lambert, who held them to one run on four hits while striking out nine in his major-league debut Thursday at Wrigley Field.

Here’s the Cubs lineup:

Schwarber LF

Bryant 3B

Rizzo 1B

Baez SS

Contreras C

Heyward RF

Russell 2B

Quintana P

Almora CF
