Tyler Chatwood (0-1, 1.50 ERA) will be on the mound today for his second start of the season opposed by righty Ivan Nova (0-1, 6.10 ERA).

Anthony Rizzo was placed on the 10-day disabled list on Tuesday morning as he is still nursing tightness in his lower back as Ben Zobrist and Victor Caratini will be his replacement at first base.

The game will be televised on ABC 7 Chicago, MLB Network (outside-the-Chicago area), and MLB.TV.
