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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Schwarber went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's 9-7 win over the Braves.

Schwarber continues to struggle to hit for average, as he's now batting .230, but his power is showing up with 17 home runs through 76 games. The 26-year-old is an unorthodox leadoff hitter, but he gives the Cubs a unique threat from the top of their order.

Cubs' Kyle Schwarber: Sits against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwarber is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Braves.

Schwarber has started the past eight games, slashing .226/.273/.419 with one home run and three RBI during that stretch. He'll give way to Kris Bryant in left field Wednesday with lefty Dallas Keuchel starting for the opposition.

Cubs' Kyle Schwarber: Provides lone run with blast
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwarber went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the White Sox.

Schwarber actually led off the bottom of the first inning with the blast, his 16th of the season, but he and the rest of the Cubs sputtered from there. The slugging outfielder continues to post good power numbers as the team's primary leadoff hitter against right-handed starters.

June 16, 2019 03:28 PM
Cubs' Kyle Schwarber: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwarber is out of the lineup for Sunday night's game against the Dodgers.

Schwarber has started the last eight games in left field for the Cubs and has four home runs, but he will take a seat Sunday with dominant lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu on the mound for Los Angeles. Kris Bryant slides out to left field in the series finale while David Bote takes over at third base.

Cubs' Kyle Schwarber: Belts leadoff home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwarber went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers.

Schwarber got the Cubs on the board with a 398-foot blast to center field on Clayton Kershaw's first pitch of the game. The homer was Schwarber's 15th of the season, three of which have been hit off left-handed pitchers -- two more than he hit off lefties all of last season. After struggling to the tune of a .196 average in May, Schwarber has picked it up in June, hitting .313 (15-for-48) with five home runs and 12 runs batted in.

Cubs' Kyle Schwarber: Homers, drives in four
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwarber went 1-for-4 with a home run and four RBI overall in Wednesday's 10-1 win over the Rockies.

Schwarber hit a three-run home run in the second inning and then drove in another run on a sacrifice fly in the fifth. The slugging outfielder is up to 14 home runs and 32 RBI, and he continues to serve as an unorthodox leadoff hitter against right-handed starters.

Cubs' Kyle Schwarber: Doubles, drives in two
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwarber went 2-for-3 with a double, walk and two RBI in a victory over the Cardinals on Sunday.

Schwarber drove in his first run of the evening with a double in the fifth inning and tacked on another with a single in the seventh. The performance extended Schwarber's hitting streak to seven games, during which he has hit .423 (11-for-26) with a pair of homers and six runs batted in. His season slash line is now up to .239/.344/.463.

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

Schwarber went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double, a home run, two runs scored and two RBI in Saturday's 9-4 win over the Cardinals.

Batting first as has been his norm recently against righty starters, Schwarber hit his 12th home run of the season and fourth in the past 10 games in the fourth inning. The slugging outfielder is only batting .233, but his .338 on-base percentage and .455 slugging percentage have helped offset his low batting average.

Cubs' Kyle Schwarber: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Schwarber is riding a five-game hitting streak, a stretch in which he's posted a 1.008 OPS. He'll head to the bench despite a righty (Miles Mikolas) being on the mound for the Cardinals. Carlos Gonzalez gets the start in left field.

Cubs' Kyle Schwarber: Hits 11th home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwarber went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Rockies.

It was another boom-or-bust night for Schwarber, as he hit his 11th home run of the season but struck out in two of his other three at-bats. Despite Schwarber's propensity for striking out, the Cubs like his power and ability to draw walks, and they've established the lefty outfielder as their preferred leadoff hitter against right-handed starters.

Cubs' Kyle Schwarber: Goes yard again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwarber went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Astros.

He led off the game with his second long ball in as many nights and 10th of the year. Schwarber's .224/.337/.441 slash line on the year limits his fantasy appeal, but the 26-year-old is at least on pace to match the career-high 30 homers he slugged in 2017.
