Kyle Schwarber
News 
 Oscar Mercado has been diagnosed with a mild sprain of his left wrist.
Brendan Tuma - Too Much Tuma
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
 Oscar Mercado exited Thursday's game against the Giants with a potential wrist injury.
Connor Rooney
Thu, Mar 5th
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
Notes 
 Mercado is a popular breakout pick, and even in a shortened season, he offers 12/12 potential.
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
 Mercado impressed as a rookie, hitting 15 homers, stealing 15 bags and scoring 70 runs in just 115 games. His production slowed at the end of the year, though, and the overall batting average will likely dip so don't expect the same useful pace for all of 2020.
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
