Frank Schwindel – less than a day after the election in Triple-A – is going to rejoin the Chicago Cubs – Chicago Tribune


SAN DIEGO – The time of Frank Schwindel’s first base from Triple-A Iowa did not last long.

Schwindel is expected to rejoin the Chicago Cubs in San Diego before the series starts Monday night, a source confirms. A fan of Cubs noticed Schwindel on Monday morning from Chicago to San Diego.

It is unclear what appropriate move the Cubs will make for Schwindel. However, the fact that Schwindel was so quickly recalled and did not spend the minimum term in the juveniles suggests that the Cubs have some injuries or damage on the list.

Left-hander Justin Steele came out of Sunday’s start with a sore thumb of his left hand. He was originally scheduled to start Monday against Padres, but his exit was postponed. Right-hander Marcus Stroman received a scratch from a scheduled start on Sunday and was placed on IL with no damage. Players can go out on IL only if it is related to COVID.

The 30-year-old Schwindel was selected in Triple A by Sunday evening Defeat the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-1. He does not lose his last option in the junior league because he did not spend at least 20 days in the miners. The cubs hoped the move would allow Schwindel to shut up and regain what made him successful in the two stellar months before closing last season.

After missing time for spring training due to back tension, Schwindel struggled. He posted a .209 / .250 / .308 slash with 62 OPS +, five extra strikes at base, 21 strikeouts and five moves. His strikeout rate was nearly 7% higher than last year, while his walking rate was down 1.5%.
