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.
