Kyle Schwarber takes a touble over the bullpen mound making a catch

SHARE Kyle Schwarber takes a touble over the bullpen mound making a catch

For as impressive as Kyle Schwarber has been, defensively he’s still a work in progress.

With a pair of strong defensive catchers in David Ross and Miguel Montero taking up time behind the plate, Cubs manager Joe Maddon has moved Schwarber to the outfield to keep his bat in the lineup.

Sunday, against the Cardinals, Schwarber enjoyed one of the many Wrigley Field quirks.

Schwarber appeared to be just fine, with no damage to anything other than his ego.

With a crowded infield, Schwarber may eventually make a permanent home in the outfield. With time, he will almost assuredly learn how to handle the outfield. When Jorge Soler returns from the disabled list, Maddon may be forced to take one of the young stars out of the lineup.
