Description: Cubs outfielder Matt Szczur, just up from the minors, will start in center field on Thursday.
Insight: Dexter Fowler is not in the Thursday lineup. No injury, just a routine day off. Szczur batted .226 in 62 at-bats last season and had 10 at-bats earlier this spring, but has yet to show fantasy owners he's worthy of a start.

Description: Cubs outfield prospect Matt Szczur will get his first major league start Monday versus Bartolo Colon and the Mets.
Insight: Szczur got into Sunday's game as a pinch runner and grounded into a fielder's choice to second in the ninth inning. He's better known for his football acumen, helping Villanova win the 2009 FCS championship with 270 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns.
