Kyle Schwarber discusses playing catcher in 2017

Cubs catcher-outfielder Kyle Schwarber talked about various subjects to ESPN recently including possibly playing catcher in 2017.

"I know that he’s [Contreras] more talented than I am behind the plate with some things, but I still think I can bring some things to the table and guide a pitcher," Schwarber said via ESPN.com. "I am not giving up on catching at all just because I have a bum knee. Buster Posey broke his leg, and he’s still catching."

In 2015, 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.
