The Chicago Cubs have announced that they will call up top prospect Kris Bryant to the majors and that he is likely to start on Friday night against the San Diego Padres.

within hours of the announcement, Bryant was trending on Twitter across America as the Cubs fans and just simply fans of baseball are eager to see his debut.

Bryant has been impressive during his spell in the minors and now the Cubs fans are hoping that he can help improve the team.

After hitting .321 with three homers and 10 RBI's in just seven minor league games, Bryant is definitely one of the most anticipated arrivals in the league.

Bryant will take the roster spot of fellow third baseman Mike Olt who will now be moved to the Disabled list after suffering a hairline fracture in his wrist last weekend.

The atmosphere at Wrigley Field is expected to be unmatched on Friday night and Bryant's debut should be one to be remembered.

Key to keep winning?

The Cubs are currently 5-3 this season having so far lost a match to every team they have played.

The Cubs now face a home series against the Padres in which the two teams will face off three times in three days.

The Padres are 6-4 this season so both teams have made good starts but over the next three games, one we should see one begin to pull away.
