Schwarber is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Reds. Schwarber will head to the bench for what appears to be a well-deserved breather after launching his first career walkout home run in Tuesday's extra-inning victory. The outfielder has started the past 15 games, slashing .237/.348/.576 with five homers and 10 RBI over that stretch. Kris Bryant, Albert Almora and Jason Heyward are starting in the outfield for the Cubs in this one.
Schwarber went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 4-3 extra-inning win over the Reds. His lone hit was a big one, as Schwarber took Raisel Iglesias deep in the bottom of the 10th for his first career walkoff blast. The slugger has now homered in three straight games, all solo shots, giving Schwarber 21 home runs and 46 RBI through 90 games to go with his .231/.324/.481 slash line.
Schwarber went 2-for-5 with a home run, a double and an RBI in the Cubs' 6-3 loss to the Reds on Monday. Schwarber got the Cubs on the board in the third inning as he launched his 20th home run of the season. The young left fielder had gone eight consecutive games without hitting a home run, but Monday's shot is now the second in as many days for the slugger. Schwarber is now slashing 232./.326/.476 on the year, and while that stat line isn't eye-popping, he is on track to set personal bests in home runs and RBI.
Schwarber went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Sunday's 8-3 win over the Pirates. Schwarber followed an Albert Almora pinch-hit blast with one of his own in the sixth inning, giving the left-handed outfielder 19 home runs for the season. The Cubs have been deploying his powerful bat in the leadoff spot against righties, and Schwarber should continue to hit plenty of long balls and score a lot of runs atop a strong Chicago lineup.
Schwarber went 2-for-3 with two walks, a double and a run scored in Saturday's 10-4 win over the Pirates. Schwarber also notably did not strike out in the game, though he's still whiffing 27.9 percent of the time for the season. The slugging outfielder is basically delivering exactly what the Cubs and fantasy owners expected: a lot of strikeouts and walks, with good power (18 home runs). Schwarber is locked in as the Cubs' leadoff hitter against righties, and while the strikeouts hurt his batting average, his ability to draw walks and hit the ball over the fence make him a threat atop the lineup.
