Cubs are looking for a lefty outfield bat??? This one is a no brainer. CALL HIM UP NOW!!!

It does seem like it would be a logical internal solution to our offensive woes but Schwarber may not be skilled enough to man LF. All we have heard and read is how the Cubs want Schwarber to be a catcher. How that plays out with Montero on the roster for two more years is another matter. We may be hearing a change of philosophy soon regarding this scenario and Schwarber may very well get significant playing time in LF at AAA getting him ready for the bigs? Otherwise, how will this slugger get most of his ML AB’s with Montero being a #1 catcher? We sure could use his bat in place of Coghlan’s during this wild card push we face during the second half as reinforcements are an obvious must.
