Kyle Schwarber Can Only Pinch Hit in Chicago Cubs’ Home Games

Kyle Schwarber will still be able to contribute for the Cubs when the World Series shifts to Wrigley Field for games 3, 4 and 5, but it will be in a limited capacity.

Schwarber has not been medically cleared to play the outfield, so he will only be able to be used as a pinch hitter, Chicago general manger Theo Epstein announced on Thursday. The power hitter was able to DH in the first two games, which were played in an American League stadium.

Schwarber drove in two runs and scored another, as the Cubs evened the series at 1 on Wednesday night. He also doubled in the Game 1 loss, which was his first action since he tore knee ligaments in April.

The slugger will have to make his at-bats count, as the Fall Classic shifts to Wrigley Field for the next three games.
