2011 MLB Trade Rumors: Chicago Cubs Interested In Padres 1B Prospect Anthony Rizzo

According to Jon Heyman, the Chicago Cubs may look to acquire San Diego Prospects first base prospect Anthony Rizzo:

The 21-year-old Rizzo, who played 93 games with the Padres' Triple-A affiliate and 49 with the MLB club, rates as one of the Padres' top prospects, but following the recent acquisition of Yonder Alonso from the Cincinnati Reds, Rizzo has become redundant in a system rich with prospect talent.

Rizzo hit 26 homer and a .331/.404/.652 slash with the Padres' Triple-A affiliate, but floundered in his limited time in the majors, hitting only 1 homer and a .141/.281/.242 slash.
