Schwarber reports to I-Cubs

Posted: Updated:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Kyle Schwarber is back in Des Moines. The Cubs' slugger will suit up on Monday night after being demoted by the parent club last week.

Schwarber's demotion came after he opened the season hitting just .171 with 12 home runs in the Cubs' first 64 games. He is slated to play left field and bat in the third position for the I-Cubs against visiting New Orleans.

I-Cubs officials say the game currently isn't sold out, but they expect a large amount of walk-up ticket sales at Principal Park.
