Chicago Cubs slugger Kyle Schwarber will be sent down to Triple-A Iowa on Thursday according to reports and the move was confirmed by the team. He has struck out at an alarming rate - 75 times in 222 at-bats this season and has the lowest batting average for any regular in the majors.
In 2017, he has batted.171 with 12 homers, 28 RBI, and.295 on-base percentage.
The stay isn't supposed to last long, but the Cubs are hoping that Schwarber will be able to figure things out in Iowa before rejoining the big-league club.
Schwarber had a much better time of it previous year when he played a key role in leading the Cubs to their first World Series title since 1908.
Schwarber came back from a knee injury last season to play in the World Series against Cleveland and hit.412 as a designated hitter.
Kyle Schwarber has struggled to find consistency at the plate since the beginning of the season and a few have even suggested that a few days in the minors could help a lot.
