The Chicago Cubs might want to think about surrounding Kyle Schwarber and Dexter Fowler with mobile warning tracks.
The Cubs outfielders collided Thursday night during the second inning of their team’s 14-6 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. They were chasing down Jean Segura’s fly ball when their legs tangled, leaving Schwarber writhing in pain, as Segura scored on an inside-the-park home run.
Cubs trainers carted Schwarber off the field, and he didn’t return to the game.
Chicago’s power-hitting left fielder will undergo scans on multiple joints, according to MLB.com’s Carrie Muskat.
The Cubs have a deep outfield corps, so they shouldn’t expect to suffer much if they must put Schwarber on the disabled list.
