Tyler Colvin will make his first career start at first base when the Chicago Cubs take on the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday. Regular first baseman Carlos Pena suffered a sprained thumb in Monday’s win.

“I can probably use [Pena] if I needed to late,” manager Mike Quade told Paul Sullivan, of the Chicago Tribune. “But we’ll see. We’ll be careful with it and we’ll get a chance to watch Mr. Colvin at first base.”

It will also be Andrew Cashner’s first career start as a major leaguer.

The Cubs’ starting lineup for Tuesday’s game is as follows:

1) Kosuke Fukudome – RF
2) Starlin Castro – SS
3) Marlon Byrd – CF
4) Aramis Ramirez – 3B
5) Colvin – 1B
6) Alfonso Soriano – LF
7) Darwin Barney – 2B
8) Koyie Hill – C
9) Cashner – P
