The Chicago Cubs will recall slugger Kyle Schwarber from Triple-A Iowa on Thursday according to multiple reports. He should be available to Thursday's important game against the first place Brewers.

In 2017, Schwarber has batted .171 with 12 homers, 28 RBI, and .295 on-base percentage with the Cubs. He has struck out at an alarming rate -- 75 times in 222 at-bats this season and has the lowest batting average for any regular in the majors. Schwarber is also batting a terrible .143 against lefties this season.

In eight games with Triple-A Iowa, he batted .385 with .500 OBP, four homers, 9 RBI, and 1.346 OPS.

Last season, he hit .412 with a .971 OPS in five games as a hero in the 2016 World Series.

Schwarber hit .246 with 16 home runs, 43 RBIs with an outstanding .842 OPS in only 69 games (273 at-bats) in his rookie season. For his career, he is batting .207 with 28 homers, 71 RBI, and a .325 on-base percentage.
