There has been a lot of buzz over the first few weeks of the MLB season about Yankees rookie rightfielder Aaron Judge, a gargantuan hulk of a man who stands 6'7", weighs nearly 300 pounds, and has made hash of opposing pitching so far this year, batting a wild .277/.358/.660 with five home

Chicago Cubs vs. Pittsburgh Pirates Preview, Tuesday 4/25, 6:05 CT

The Cubs go for two straight over the Bucs. A few notes as we await tonight's game. The Cubs bullpen has been better lately: a 1.59 ERA (22⅔ IP, four earned runs) over the last six games. Kyle Schwarber has led off 18 of the Cubs' 19 games. He has reached base to lead off the game in nine of those 18. The Cubs have 15 ninth-inning runs this year, third in MLB behind the Indians (21) and Angels (18). Happy birthday to the Cubs franchise! It was on this date, April 25, 1876, that the franchise (then known as "White Stockings") debuted with a 4-0 victory at Louisville. Here are...

Kyle Schwarber May Have Fixed a Glaring Deficiency

Back when Kyle Schwarber was a rookie blasting homers into the Allegheny River, he still had one weakness: high fastballs. That deficiency contributed to a below-average contact rate of 67.4 percent by the end of 2015. Schwarber whiffed at nearly half of the fastballs thrown up in the strike zone during his rookie year. In particular, … The post Kyle Schwarber May Have Fixed a Glaring Deficiency appeared first on Cubs Insider.

Kyle Schwarber likes challenge of playing left field at PNC, Fenway parks this week

Kyle Schwarber will get the long and short of playing left field this week. But he's glad he's staying in left after Cubs manager Joe Maddon considered starting the slugger in the shorter right-field area at PNC Park. "It's definitely a different position with the angles, and the majority of the...

Maddon sticking with Schwarber in left field

Kyle Schwarber started in right field at PNC Park during the 2015 National League Wild Card game, and Cubs manager Joe Maddon hinted in Spring Training that may happen during the regular season as well. But Schwarber made his 10th start in left field on Monday as the Cubs opened a three-game series against the Pirates.

Reds 7, Cubs 5: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Reds 7, Cubs 5: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

This game made no sense. The Cubs didn’t appear to have the right game plan for this one, a 7-5 loss to the Reds. Kyle Schwarber leading off the game? Out on one pitch. Kris Bryant, following Schwarber? Out on one pitch. Anthony Rizzo managed to stretch Bronson Arroyo all the way to five pitches before he, too, made an out. With a guy throwing 68 mile-per-hour curveballs, why wouldn’t you be a little more patient and wait for better pitches to hit? Rizzo got one in the fourth inning after a single by Bryant and smacked a two-run homer [VIDEO]. Your browser does not support HTML5...

Chicago Cubs vs. Cincinnati Reds Preview, Friday 4/21, 6:10 CT

The Cubs begin a series against a team they dominated last year. The Cubs picked up half a game on the division-leading Reds (that still doesn't sound right!) when Cincinnati lost to the Orioles Thursday night. Thus this game is a battle for first place. Hopefully the Cubs take over the top spot tonight and don't relinquish it the rest of the season. This weekend is also a homecoming for Kyle Schwarber, who is from the Cincinnati area: "It will be a lot of fun to see friends, family, the whole nine yards there," Schwarber said. "And I have a new nephew, so I get to see him. I'm really...
