Cubs' Kyle Schwarber: Could be available off bench

Schwarber (back) may be available off the bench Saturday against the Reds and could return to the starting lineup as soon as Monday against the Diamondbacks, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.

Schwarber hasn't started the last six contests, appearing as a pinch hitter just once. His absence has allowed for additional playing time for Ben Zobrist and Ian Happ, who will both continue to start frequently even after he returns.
