Cubs | Tyler Colvin to play more

Though he sat against a left-handed pitcher Monday, Chicago Cubs OF Tyler Colvin should get the majority of the playing time in the outfield for the rest of the season. "You'll see Colvin the next three days," said manager Mike Quade. "We'll look to get everybody, [Alfonso] Soriano, [Marlon] Byrd, everybody will get an off day in the next few days." Colvin started in right field on Tuesday.

"I think we are committed to finding out about Colvin," Quade said. "He's going to get an opportunity, and it's going to be up to him to keep them. But I'm going to give him some shots. I'd love to see him get going against right-handed pitching, and I'll put him against guys where he has the best chance to succeed."
