Cubs prospect Anthony Rizzo headed to Chicago

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) - Cubs prospect Anthony Rizzo is Chicago-bound and could get his first start as early as Tuesday.

Manager Dale Sveum confirmed the news Monday night before the start of a 3-game series against the New York Mets.

The 22-year-old rookie, acquired in a winter trade with San Diego, was reportedly pulled out of Monday's game for AAA Iowa so he could travel to the Windy City.

The 6-foot-3 first baseman, who was drafted by the Red Sox in 2007 and traded to San Diego three years later, was hitting .342 with 23 home runs and 62 RBI for Iowa.

In January, the Padres sent Rizzo and pitcher Zach Cates to the Cubs in exchange for pitcher Andrew Cashner and outfielder Kyung-Min Na.
