Schwarber is not in the Cubs' Thursday lineup against the Reds.

He was 0-for-14 heading into Wednesday's game, but rebounded by going 2-for-5 with a home run. Schwarber will receive a breather against Reds southpaw Amir Garrett to let that good performance marinate and figure out how he can sustain it to correct his .188/.312/.361 line over 170 plate appearances. At least he has six home runs to go with it. Surging callup Ian Happ will take his place in left field Thursday.
