Kyle Schwarber hits seventh homer Thursday

Kyle Schwarber went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in the Cubs' 9-7 loss to the Phillies on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact:

Schwarber has taken well to the leadoff spot, notching at least one hit in six of eight games hitting atop Chicago's lineup. Perhaps the move was just what Schwarber needed to start producing; it helps that he has Javier Baez behind him for protection as well. He's working his way back into standard league viability, and it's worth checking to see if Schwarber's available in shallow leagues.
