Pirates-Cubs Preview

(AP) -- It's a small sample size, but for the Chicago Cubs so far, the kids are all right.

Addison Russell was the latest rookie to make a contribution, and he's expected to make his Wrigley Field debut Monday night when the Cubs host a Pittsburgh Pirates team in search of its sixth straight win.

The 21-year-old was called up last week, joining fellow highly touted prospects Kris Bryant and Jorge Soler in the big leagues as Chicago (10-7) appears to have finished rebuilding. While Russell has yet to find his offensive stride - he's just 3 for 22 in his first five games - he did deliver a bases-loaded double to cap a four-run fourth in Sunday's 5-2 victory at Cincinnati.
