CINCINNATI (AP) — The Chicago Cubs are giving one of their prospects a chance to spend a couple of days in the majors, promoting second baseman Arismendy Alcantara while infielder Darwin Barney is on paternity leave.

Alcantara, 22, was in the starting lineup batting second against the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday night. He batted .307 with 25 doubles, 11 triples, 10 homers and 41 RBIs for Triple-A Iowa.

When Barney returns, Alcantara will go back to the minors. Barney is batting .224 with 10 doubles, one triple, two homers and 16 RBIs in 70 games.

As planned, the Cubs called up right-hander Dallas Beeler to make his second major league start in Cincinnati. They optioned left-hander Chris Rusin to Iowa.

Left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada also was returned to Iowa, a day after his debut.
