Kyle Schwarber


This isn't like last September.

The Cubs didn't call up Javier Baez just to pencil him in at second base and the two-hole in the order every single game.


Kyle Schwarber has turned into one of the most important hitters for the Cubs, but manager Joe Maddon won't be writing the rookie's name on the lineup card for a few days.


Hector Rondon waited around his hotel room, not sure if he should wear his Superman onesie to Dodger Stadium.


The Cubs scratched Kyle Schwarber from Wednesday’s lineup with right rib soreness and can only hope this isn’t a serious injury for their hard-charging rookie.


If the actual potential to make a difference matched the buzz on Twitter, Javier Baez would have already been here before this September call-up.
