Cubs' Maddon: It's possible Kyle Schwarber is a September callup
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

All Cubs prospect Kyle Schwarber has done since turning pro last season is hit the cover off the baseball in the minors. 

The No. 4 overall pick in the 2014 MLB Draft posted a .344/.428/.634/1.061 slash line and 18 home runs in 72 games last year, and he has continued to rake at Double-A Tennessee in 2015. He has a .307/.436/.584/1.020 slash line and 10 home runs in 42 games.

Schwarber's smooth transition to pro baseball has Cubs manager Joe Maddon thinking the catcher/outfielder could be ready to help the major-league club this season.

“He’s a very, very mature at-bat, and he’s doing better behind the plate, too, from what I understand," Maddon said Sunday. “You ask him, he’ll tell you he can. And that’s a big part of it, too. He’s really confident.

“He’s definitely, definitely got the hitting chip. Every time I look up at the scoreboard at home, it’s like: Schwarber went 3 for 5 with a home run and three RBI. Even if it’s 1 for 5, it’s like a game-winning RBI.”

With the way Schwarber is progressing, he will likely move on to Triple-A this season. However, a September callup might not be out of the question.

"It’s possible," Maddon said. "Anything’s possible."

Cubs' Maddon defends Starlin Castro following two-error game
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro heard the boos from the home crowd during Wednesday's 3-0 loss against the Nationals as he committed two more errors, giving him 11 on the season.

Castro has had his defensive struggles throughout his career. However, first-year manager Joe Maddon came to Castro's defense following his two-error game.

"He’s done a lot of good things,” Maddon said, per CSNChicago.com. “I would say the problem mostly with him has been the routine play more than anything else. And I really believe that you can get a major-league caliber infielder to make the routine play. And he’s been doing that for awhile. He’s had a couple of mistakes -- I don’t disagree. But for the most part, I’ve been fine with him at shortstop."

Cubs P Jon Lester allows 1 earned run in loss to Nationals
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Cubs pitcher Jon Lester gave up two runs — one earned — in Wednesday evening's 3-0 loss to the Nationals. 

Lester pitched a solid game, though gave up a home run to Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper in the sixth inning. Then again, most pitchers have found it difficult throwing to Harper of late. Lester was still able to strike out 10 batters.

Lester has allowed only four earned runs over his past three starts and now holds a 3.30 ERA. 

His next start is projected for June 2 against the Marlins.
