Schwarber Not Medically Cleared to Play OF, Will Not Be in Game 3 Lineup

Chicago Cubs President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein confirmed today that Kyle Schwarber has not been medically cleared to play in the outfield, and therefore will not be available to start for the Cubs in their home tilts against the Cleveland Indians in the World Series.

“The history here is, this was not just an ACL tear.  This was a complete blow-out of his knee… (with) an 8-month return to play as the best-case scenario,” Epstein said in a press conference following the team’s off-day workout at Wrigley Field.

Epstein went on to state that doctors felt that the outfield required “too much activity” for Schwarber at this time, and while he is still good to go as a pinch-hitter and to run the bases, “we just have to look out for his long-term health and career.”

Schwarber will still be the team’s Designated Hitter if the series were to go back to Progressive Field in Cleveland.  The Cubs are currently tied with the Indians at one game apiece in the best-of-seven World Series.

Game Three is Friday night, October 28th, at 6:30pm.
