That was fast!
Nearly a year after being selected No. 4 in the 2014 MLB First-Year Player Draft, former Indiana catcher Kyle Schwarber is set to make his MLB debut.
The Chicago Cubs called up their prized prospect Monday night, and while the promotion is expected to be a brief one, Schwaber will get at-bats with the team playing five consecutive games in AL parks, where the DH is in play.
Schwarber figures to make his MLB debut vs. Cleveland, either Tuesday night at Wrigley Field or Wednesday night at Progressive Field.
Here's what Schwarber had to say about the promotion:
Grateful for this opportunity that I'm going to get! Very excited to compete and learn!#Cubs— Kyle Schwarber (@kschwarb12) June 16, 2015
Remember this fun feature from Schwarber's freshman season?
The Indiana baseball family recognized Schwarber's promotion, too.
Congrats to Kyle Schwarber on his call up to the big leagues. Didn't take long... pic.twitter.com/9nu5xcjYoq— Tracy Smith (@ASUSkip) June 16, 2015
