Mark Rebilas - USA Today Sports
Cubs skipper Joe Maddon talked to 670 The Score on Tuesday afternoon as he previewed the upcoming game one of the World Series between the Cubs and Indians on Tuesday night.
Maddon said that Kyle Schwarber will DH tonight for the Cubs after a whole season of rehabbing his torn ACL.
"It takes one swing to have a great night, and he has those abilities," Maddon said.
Maddon reiterated the news on Tuesday afternoon with the media that Schwarber would be starting at DH on Tuesday night. The rosters have not been officially announced yet but look for Schwarber to be in the middle of the lineup possibly at #5.
Schwarber went 1-for-3 with a double, walk, and a run scored playing for the Mesa Solar Sox in the Arizona Fall League on Monday afternoon.
