News 
 Max Kepler went 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI in Friday's win over Tampa Bay.
Michael Felner
Sat, Mar 7th
Kyle Schwarber won't be the Cubs' sole DH, and the team plans to rotate players through the position instead.
Brad Camara
Mon, Jun 29th
 Max Kepler went 0-for-2 in Saturday's game against the Boston Red Sox.
Michael Felner
Sat, Feb 29th
Kyle Schwarber looks to be the starting left-fielder regularly this season. He offers power and patience at the plate to go with a very strong arm in the field.
Jamie Mellor
Sun, Mar 8th
 Max Kepler has yet to play in spring training games due to a sore upper back, according to Twins' manager, Rocco Baldelli.

Notes 
 Kepler finally tapped into his potential last season after showing signs of it in 2018. There's nothing really, from an underlying or surface level, that says it was flukey.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Schwarber had a fantastic year, but there are some concerns about him platooning in a shortened season against lefties.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Most seem to recall Kepler knocking 36 homers but did you realize he did it while missing 30 games. The batting average will almost definitely be under .260 but if he plays the full season, you can bet on 90+ runs and 90+ RBIs this season.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
There has been some hype fatigue on Schwarber so you can now get him in the 13th round even though he jacked 38 homers with 92 RBIs last season. In fact, the batting average even leaped up to .250 and is projected to remain there for the 2020 season.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
  Real breakout potential here. Schwarber was a stud in the second half of last season and certainly has the potential to keep
