Kyle Schwarber says goodbye to Chicago Cubs fans on social media.
The Chicago Cubs decided to make a couple of tough decisions this week. They decided to tender the contract of Kris Bryant but chose to let Kyle Schwarber and Alber Almora go untendered. This is sad for both guys leaving but it hits especially hard for fans in terms of seeing Schwarber go. He was one of the five guys you would consider to be a part of the position playing core that has been getting it done for many years now.
He wasn’t very good in 2020 but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t an important player for them. He is a super nice man and everyone loved playing with him. He isn’t very good defensively but he has gotten better as the years went on. Prior to 2020, which was a short 60 game season because of COVID-19, he was a pretty good offensive player. As recent as 2019, he had 38 home runs and 92 RBIs which are great power numbers but his average was only .250. which was the highest single-season average of his career.
