#Cubs Schwarber has knee surgery
Kyle Schwarber underwent successful ACL reconstruction and LCL repair on his left knee Tuesday by Dallas Cowboys orthopedic specialist Dr. Daniel Cooper, and the Cubs expect a full recovery.
Schwarber was playing left field on April 7 when he tore both his ACL and LCL in a collision with teammate Dexter Fowler at Chase Field.
Cooper has been in touch with Cubs orthopedic specialist Dr. Stephen Gryzlo regarding the procedure. The Cubs said the procedure went well.
Schwarber batted .246 in 69 games with the Cubs last season, his rookie year, hitting 16 home runs and driving in 43 runs. He was expected to play both outfield and catcher this season.
