Schwarber launched a two-run homer in the third inning off starter Dereck Rodriguez, bringing his season total to a team-leading 29 long balls. Overall, the 26-year-old is batting .229/.324/.491 with 67 RBI and 61 runs scored.

Cubs' Kyle Schwarber: Sits against lefty

Cubs' Kyle Schwarber: Smacks 28th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwarber went 1-for-5 with a solo home run Thursday against the Phillies.

Schwarber took Drew Smyly deep in the fifth inning to record his 28th homer of the season. While he's gone hitless in five of his last seven games, Schwarber continues to provide plenty of pop, ripping four homers in his last 11 contests. For the season, he's hitting .229/.323/.491 across 455 plate appearances.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwarber is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Phillies.

He will ride the pine with lefty Jason Vargas starting for Philadelphia. Nick Castellanos starts in left field, hitting second.

Cubs' Kyle Schwarber: Goes deep in blowout loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwarber went 2-for-4 with a solo home in Saturday's 10-1 loss to the Reds.

Schwarber hit his 27th home run of the season in the ninth inning with the Cubs trailing 10-0. While it wasn't a particularly clutch long ball, the blast did push the slugger past his home-run total from last year. Schwarber's career best for home runs in a season is the 30 he hit in 2017, and he has a good chance of surpassing that figure this year.

Cubs' Kyle Schwarber: Slugs 26th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwarber went 1-for-3 with a walk, a three-run home run and a second run scored in Wednesday's 10-1 rout of the A's.

The 26-year-old has now matched his power production from last year with 26 homers, but he's done it in 28 fewer games. Schwarber remains a fairly one-dimensional fantasy asset with a .234/.330/.495 slash line, but he's closing in on his second career 30-HR campaign.

Cubs' Kyle Schwarber: Sitting vs. southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwarber isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Athletics.

Schwarber will head to the bench with a lefty in Brett Anderson set to toe the rubber Tuesday evening. With Schwarber out of the mix, Nicholas Castellanos shifts to left field, Jason Heyward moves to right and Albert Almora draws the start in center.

Cubs' Kyle Schwarber: Out of Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwarber is not in Saturday's lineup against the Brewers.

A lefty (Gio Gonzalez) is starting for the Brewers, so Schwarber will head to the bench. In four games since he drove in seven last Sunday, he's 1-for-11 with four walks.

July 28, 2019 06:44 PM
Cubs' Kyle Schwarber: Drives in seven Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwarber went 3-for-3 with two home runs, four runs scored and seven RBI in Sunday's 11-4 win over the Brewers.

It was a monster day for Schwarber, who is now up to 24 home runs and 54 RBI this season after hitting a grand slam and a three-run bomb, both against Milwaukee starter Zach Davies. It was also the second straight day that the lefty slugger hit eighth, as the Cubs have seemingly decided to try some different options in the leadoff spot. Schwarber could force himself up a little higher in the order with a hot stretch at the plate.

July 27, 2019 04:52 PM
Cubs' Kyle Schwarber: Hitting eighth
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwarber is starting in left field and hitting eighth Saturday against the Brewers.

Schwarber is hitting just .190 with a .244 OBP in 13 games since the All-Star break, so he'll drop to the bottom third of the order while Robes Garcia gets a turn as the leadoff man.

July 26, 2019 04:40 PM
Cubs' Kyle Schwarber: Sitting versus southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwarber is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Brewers.

Schwarber started the last four contests but will head to the bench Friday with left-hander Gio Gonzalez taking the mound for Milwaukee. Ian Happ will start in left field in his absence.

Cubs' Kyle Schwarber: Batting leadoff Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwarber is starting in left field and batting first in Sunday's game against the Padres.

For the third straight game, San Diego will send a left-handed starter to the hill, this time Adrian Morejon in his MLB debut. However, unlike Friday and Saturday, Schwarber gets the starting nod. He's hitting .220/.304/.407 (83 wRC+) against southpaws this season.

July 20, 2019 10:52 AM
Cubs' Kyle Schwarber: Takes seat in second straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwarber is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Padres.

The Padres will bring a lefty (Joey Lucchesi) to the hill for the second straight day, resulting in another trip to the bench for Schwarber, who is hitting .220/.304/.407 (83 wRC+) versus southpaws this season. Robel Garcia will fill in for Schwarber in left field.

July 19, 2019 12:28 PM
Cubs' Kyle Schwarber: Not starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwarber is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Padres.

Schwarber will take a seat for the second straight contest with the Friars trotting out a left-hander in Eric Lauer for the series opener. Kris Bryant slides out to left field in his absence, while David Bote starts at third base.

Cubs' Kyle Schwarber: Gets breather
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 walkoff 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.

July 17, 2019 08:28 AM
Cubs' Kyle Schwarber: Plays hero in 10th
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Cubs' Kyle Schwarber: Homers again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

July 14, 2019 05:36 PM
Cubs' Kyle Schwarber: Launches 19th home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Cubs' Kyle Schwarber: Reaches base four times in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Cubs' Kyle Schwarber: Connects on 18th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwarber went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run Sunday in the Cubs' 8-6 loss to the Reds.

Schwarber has endured a bit of a power outage lately, but with 18 home runs already on his ledger this season, he remains on pace to best the career-high 30 he smashed in 2017. He'll look to build on the three-hit performance in Monday's series opener in Pittsburgh, where he'll slot into left field and serve as the Cubs' leadoff man.
