    • Schwarber went 2-for-4 with two doubles, two RBI and a run scored in Monday's 5-0 win over the Pirates. A night after being removed early from a game for an uninspired effort retrieving a ball in left field, Schwarber looked locked in. He's still batting under .200, but the 27-year-old is capable of producing good numbers in spurts, so the Cubs will hope he heats up for the playoffs. Schwarber was removed from this game as well, but it was for a pinch-runner in the eighth inning, so it appears as if Sunday's transgression is in the rearview mirror.

    • Schwarber is starting in left field and batting cleanup in Monday's game against the Pirates. Schwarber was removed from Sunday's contest in the top of the third inning, and it seemed like the move was made due to a play an inning earlier, where the 27-year-old was a bit slow to retrieve a ball hit to the left field corner. When asked about it after the game, Chicago manager David Ross said, "Kyle Schwarber is a true professional in every sense of the word, and I'll leave it at that," Gordon Wittenmyer of NBC Sports Chicago reports, so it seems like the Cubs are trying to keep the situation in house and move on. For the season, Schwarber is slashing .190/.306/.393 with 10 home runs in 52 games.

    • Schwarber was removed from Sunday's game against the Twins in the top of the third inning, and manager David Ross said "he's fine" when asked about an injury during the broadcast. In the top of the second inning, Schwarber was a bit slow in retrieving a ball hit to the corner by Jake Cave and it ended up going for a triple. It's possible that Ross was sending a message by removing Schwarber for that effort, though more details will likely emerge after the game. Schwarber went 0-for-1 as the cleanup hitter while he was in the contest. Cameron Maybin replaced him in left field.

    • Schwarber is not in Thursday's lineup against the Reds. He will head to the bench against a righty (Sonny Gray), which is a bit of a rarity for Schwarber. For what little it's worth, Schwarber has a .214 average with five strikeouts and zero home runs in 14 career at-bats against Gray. Cameron Maybin will start in left field while David Bote starts at designated hitter.

    • Schwarber will be on the bench Wednesday against the Pirates. Schwarber hits the bench even with righty Joe Musgrove on the mound for Pittsburgh. He hasn't actually been platooned this season, as he's started against all but one lefty and all but two righties. Steven Souza Jr. will be the left fielder Wednesday.
