CLEVELAND -- Kyle Schwarber was added to the World Series roster of the Chicago Cubs.
Schwarber, rebounding from a knee injury, played his second game in the Arizona Fall League on Monday afternoon and flew to Cleveland on Monday night as a possible addition to Chicago's World Series roster.
The Cubs officially set their roster at 10 a.m. ET on Tuesday, eight hours before Game 1 at Progressive Field.
"Right now, he's doing everything well and right," Cubs manager Maddon said Monday during media day. "He's given us another option. He's swinging the bat well. He's running really well, actually. He's done some sliding drills, all that kind of stuff to just test the whole thing out."
Relief pitcher Rob Zastryzny was removed from the playoff roster to create a spot for the slugger.
Schwarber was 1-for-3 with a double, a run and a walk as the DH in his second game with the Mesa Solar Sox on Monday afternoon after going 0-for-3 with a walk in his first game on Saturday night. He set a postseason home run record with the Cubs in 2015.
The Ohio native made his MLB debut at Progressive Field and went 4 for 5 with a home run.
On April 7, Schwarber sustained torn anterior and lateral collateral ligaments in his left knee when, playing left field, he collided with Cubs center fielder Dexter Fowler while chasing a long fly to left-center that turned into an inside-the-park homer for Arizona's Jean Segura.
Schwarber could be used as a designated hitter in Cleveland, which has home-field advantage and could host four World Series games.
