23-year old lefty swinging OF/C Kyle Schwarber will miss the remainder for the 2016 season due to a torn ACL in his left knee. He was injured in a collision with CF Dexter Fowler last night in Arizona. He played in 2 games for the Cubs this year and he was 0 for 4 (.000 avg, .200 OPS). Last year he burst onto the scene and played in 69 games for the Cubs in which he was 57 of 232 (.246 avg, .842 OPS) with 52 runs scored, 16 homers, 43 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. Schwarber also played in 9 games in the post-season for the Cubs in which he was 9 for 27 (.333 avg, 1.308 OPS) with 6 runs scored, 5 homers and 8 RBIs. 24-year old righty swinging Jorge Soler will probably see the biggest bump in P.T. due to Schwarber’s injury. He was set to platoon with him in LF this year. Soler has played in 3 games for the Cubs so far this year and he is 1 for 9 (.111 avg, .311 OPS) with 1 run scored and 1 RBI. He played in 101 games during the regular season for the Cubs last year and he was 96 of 366 (.262 avg, .723 OPS) with 39 runs scored, 10 homers, 47 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. Soler stepped up when the games counted in the playoffs for the Cubs last year. He played in 7 games in the playoffs for the Cubs last year and he was 9 for 19 (.474 avg, 1.705 OPS) with 6 runs scored, 3 homers and 5 RBIs. This is a bad break for the Cubs, but Soler was just as highly thought of as Schwarber when they were coming up through the minor league system.
