The Chicago Cubs will recall Kyle Schwarber from Triple-A Iowa on Thursday. Jesse Rogers of ESPN was the first to report it. It has since been confirmed by others.

Schwarber hit .343/.477/.714 with four home runs and nine RBI in his 11 games at Triple-A level. The idea of sending him down was to give him a jump start. That definitely occurred, so the Cubs now understandably want to see if carries back over to the major league level.

Schwarber has hit just .171/.295/.378 through 64 games with the Cubs, but after that minor league stint, look for him to be plugged back into the lineup, with all involved hoping they can soon pretend April-June didn’t happen.
