Boom! Kyle Schwarber has been a professional baseball player for about a month, and all he has done is hit. He started with the Boise Hawks, he played five games there and hit .600 with four home runs, and ten RBI’s in twenty-four plate appearances. Then came Kane County, Schwarber played in twenty-two games hitting .380 with four home runs, and fifteen RBI’s in ninety-two plate appearances.
The grand totals so far? .424 average (42-for-99), eight home runs, twenty-five RBI’s, nine doubles, one triple, thirteen walks, eighteen strikeouts, and an OPS of just 1.278.
As you can see by the tweet above, Schwarber is moving on from Kane County, and the report is that he is heading to High A Daytona. That is excellent news as this is the second straight season that the Cubs first round pick will see the high A level, Kris Bryant did it last year.
This is very good news, and exciting as well. Good luck, Kyle!
