Is Kyle Schwarber Being Promoted Again? Sounds Like He’s Headed to Daytona

Cubs Minor Leagues and Prospects

I’m still largely under the weather, but I couldn’t fail to at least mention this Kyle Schwarber tweet, which has set everyone off:

The implication there could be that Schwarber, the Cubs’ top pick in this year’s draft, has been promoted once again. If so, that’ll make him the second straight Cubs first rounder to reach High-A Daytona in his first professional season – which is absolutely ridiculous. Note that, strictly reading, Schwarber could have simply felt like saying something nice about Kane County tonight.


At Kane County, Schwarber was hitting .361/.448/.602 with 4 homers, 8 doubles, 11 walks, and 17 strikeouts.

We’ll see if he’s now been promoted to Daytona, or if this was just a matter of a guy sending out some appreciation, and then everyone jumping to a(n admittedly logical) conclusion.


And Sahadev Sharma drops the confirmation:

More on this tomorrow. But, for now: this is really swell.
