Cubs send struggling Schwarber to Triple-A Iowa

MIAMI (AP) The Chicago Cubs are hoping a stint in the minors will help Kyle Schwarber find his swing again.

The 24-year-old Schwarber was sent down to Triple-A Iowa on Thursday, giving the slumping slugger a chance to catch his breath after a difficult start to the season.

"We talked to him after the game yesterday and he took it really well," manager Joe Maddon said. "We're doing it to help reset him and get him back to a fresh start. As you would expect he was very professional about it. He understood it entirely."
