The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS - SPORTS BRIEFS

MI­AMI | The Chicago Cubs have de­moted strug­gling slug­ger Kyle Sch­war­ber to Triple-A Iowa.

Sch­war­ber, the fourth over­all pick in the 2014 am­a­teur draft, is bat­ting just .171 with 12 homers and 28 RBIs in 64 games. There was no im­me­di­ate an­nounce­ment of a cor­re­spond­ing move.

Sch­war­ber made his ma­jor league de­but in 2015 and hit .246 with 16 homers and 43 RBIs in 69 games. He missed most of last sea­son with a leg in­jury af­ter a fright­en­ing out­field col­li­sion, then re­turned in Oc­to­ber to help the Cubs win the World Series for the first time since 1908.
