IU, Middletown's Kyle Schwarber May Get To World Series After All

Kyle Schwarber thought his season was over in April when he tore both the ACL and LCL in his left knee in the Cubs third game of the season.

His manager Joe Maddon was asked about Schwarber by a Cincinnati writer the last weekend of the season as the Cubs closed in on its 103rd win of the season.

"Of course he's not going to play, but he's been killing his rehab," Maddon said. "I talk to him every day. He's always around cheering his teammates. He is disappointed he hasn't been able to participate."

That may change.  The Cubs sent the Middletown native to Arizona with the idea of getting some at bats.  There is a possibility that he can be added to the Cubs roster in time for the World Series, should they defeat the Dodgers one more time at Wrigley Field this weekend.
