Photo by Jonathan Daniel/ While the Phillies and Giants make a trade. Nationals sign Kyle Schwarber This winter’s non-tender deadline was a busier one than usual with some big names and real surprises hitting the free agent market at this time. One of the biggest names to be non-tendered through it all was Kyle Schwarber, who the Cubs did not want to pay his projected salary. Chicago has been looking like their only focus this winter is to cut salary, and it turns out the Nationals will benefit here. The slugger has agreed to a deal in Washington, heading to the...

Kyle Schwarber is a lefty with power, but wasn’t the answer the KC Royals are searching for.

Milwaukee Brewers Free Agent Targets: Kyle Schwarber

Milwaukee Brewers Free Agent Targets: Kyle Schwarber

Jim Owens-USA TODAY Sports Is there a more dangerous threat at the plate in this year’s free agent class? The Milwaukee Brewers were dismal on the offensive side of the ball in 2020. There is a strong likelihood that some or most of the players that struggled at the plate for the Brew Crew will rebound in 2021. However, one thing that was glaringly missing from the 2020 lineup was a hitter that opposing teams would truly fear who is not named Christian Yelich. There was not much to fear from Schwarber in 2020. As with many MLB hitters, Schwarber struggled mightily,...

Sunday Rockpile: Should the Rockies sign Kyle Schwarber?

Photo by Joe Robbins/ Colorado Rockies news and analysis for December 27, 2020 Linked in yesterday’s Rockpile was an article from the Cubs’ sister-site from our friends at Roxpile postulating that the Rockies ought to pursue Kyle Schwarber. As one might expect, the article was from a Cubs-centered perspective with a little sprinkling of #Coors. Justin brought up in the Rockpile that the Rockies might not be up for signing Schwarber considering they just non-tendered David Dahl, who’s projected arbitration salary of $7-9 million is much higher than the $3 million...

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Kyle Schwarber

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Kyle Schwarber

Photo by Quinn Harris/ With too many one-tool power hitters, the Yankees are unlikely to onboard another one despite Schwarber’s Bronx-friendly bat. Coming up through the minors, Kyle Schwarber was a one-tool prospect, and has proven to be as predicted, a one-tool player in the majors. However, that one tool has — on occasion — proven to be as electric as almost anyone else’s. When Schwarber makes contact, he hits the ball as hard as the game’s elite batters, and as frequently hard as anyone else. Over each of the past two seasons, Schwarber finished in the...

Here’s a brief interview Kyle did regarding the work the Players Alliance is doing: The event gave C. Trent Rosecrans, the Reds beat reporter for The Athletic, a chance to talk with Kyle. On the one hand, he sounds like he’s ready to move on: “I guess it’s a part of the...
