The Chicago Cubs have activated 23-year old lefty swinging DH/OF Kyle Schwarber for the World Series. Schwarber played in only 2 games this year for the Cubs due to a blown out knee and he was 0 for 4 (.000 avg, .200 OPS). Schwarber played n 69 games for the Cubs as a rookie last year and he was 57 of 232 (.246 avg, .842 OPS) with 52 runs scored, 16 homers, 43 RBI and 3 stolen bases. In the playoffs last year, Schwarber played in 9 games for the Cubs in which he was 9 for 27 (.333 avg, 1.308 OPS) with 6 runs scored, 5 homers and 8 RBI. He will likely serve as the Cubs’ DH when games are played in Cleveland and he will be a pinch hitter in games in Chicago. To make room for Schwarber on the World Series’ roster, the Cubs have removed 24-year old rookie lefty reliever Rob Zastryzny. He didn’t pitch in the playoffs for the Cubs this year. He pitched in 8 games (1 start) in his first taste of the show in which he was 1-0 with a 1.13 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP.
