"I told him, he's two-for-two," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said of the rookie, who played one inning in left on Sunday, and also made one catch.
Schwarber didn't think the switch from catcher to outfield would be a problem, especially after doing some early work with bench coach Dave Martinez.
"You have to get to know your steps and your breaks and make sure there's no back pedals and things like that," Schwarber said. "I'm trying to get the new things out of the way."
Maddon wants to get the rookie's bat in the lineup somehow, and said Schwarber, the Cubs' No. 1 Draft pick in 2014, isn't quite ready to handle all of the Cubs' pitchers.
Is he ready for the brick outfield wall?
"There's going to be some bounces," Schwarber said.
There also was a little badinage with the bleacher fans at Wrigley.
"Cubs fans are awesome, they're crazy, they're fun," Scharber said. "That's why they're the best in baseball."
Did they say anything to him?
"They yelled," he said.
