Cubs catcher Kyle Schwarber jogged out to left field for the first time this season on Sunday during an 11-5 blowout loss against the Philadelphia Phillies. According to manager Joe Maddon, that won’t be the last time Cubs fans see Schwarber in the outfield.
Schwarber played one inning in left field, had one putout and no errors.
When catcher Miguel Montero returns from his hand injury, the Cubs want to make sure Schwarber has a spot in the lineup.
Schwarber is hitting .380 with three home runs and 11 RBI.
