The Chicago Cubs including the fans are hoping for a huge season from power slugger Kyle Schwarber in 2019.

Schwarber had a rough offensive showing last season batting only .238 with 26 homers and 61 RBIs. The lack of contact made media pundits believe that he would be traded this offseason.

However, that is probably not the case according to Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer.

"Nothing's changed," he said Monday via NBC Sports Chicago. "We really believe in him. He's an incredibly gifted hitter and we fully believe in the makeup. In general, I think you can ask a similar question about almost any guy in our core. For a reason, we 've stuck by these guys and we've won a lot of games with these guys and we believe in them.

"Of course there's no untouchables and we've said that over and over, so whenever these rumors come out — 'would they trade any of these guys?' Of course. We never have an untouchable. We do believe in these guys. If we didn't believe in them, we certainly would've changed course by now.

"The last three years, we've made a real effort to have this group together and I think we're still gonna win a lot of games as a group."

For Schwarber fans out there, it appears that the Cubs will keep him around for at least another year on the North Side. Here's hoping to 50 Schwar-bombs next season.
