CHICAGO Teams

Jesse Rogers ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cubs have sent .171 hitter Kyle Schwarber to Triple-A Iowa, according to sources familiar with the situation. After months of struggles Schwarber will get a chance to find his game before returning to help the team down the stretch. The Cubs also placed Jason Heyward on the DL with a hand injury. Replacing those players will be pitcher Dylan Floro and OF Mark Zagunis. Zagunis was a 3rd round pick in 2014 and will make his ML debut when he enters a game.
