ESPN: Schwarber out for season with torn ACL

CINCINNATI — Less than a week in, Chicago Cub and Middletown High School grad, Kyle Schwarber, is out for the rest of the 2016 season, ESPN reported Friday .

In what ESPN staff writer Jesse Rogers called a “scary collision” with center fielder Dexter Fowler, the left fielder suffered a left ankle sprain during Thursday’s win over the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Initial X-rays taken Thursday night were negative, ESPN reported, but an MRI taken Friday revealed a fully torn left ACL and LCL in his left knee.

The Cubs picked the Middletown High star in the fourth round of the 2015 draft. He made his MLB debut last summer .
