Schwarber won't play field at Wrigley Field this weekend

CHICAGO (AP) Kyle Schwarber wanted to play the field. The Chicago Cubs wanted to put him in the field. The doctors said no.

Schwarber will be relegated to pinch-hitting duty for the next three games in the World Series after doctors said Thursday it was too soon after his major left knee surgery to risk putting him in the outfield against the Cleveland Indians.

"We're going to respect the doctors," president of baseball operations Theo Epstein said. "They're the professionals here and move forward. Kyle understands that. He wants to play, he's the ultimate gamer, but he understands that the doctor's judgment has to rule the day in this case."
