Minors Setback: Kyle Schwarber not surprised about demotion

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Slumping slugger Kyle Schwarber said Monday that he's not surprised the Chicago Cubs demoted him, saying "the numbers spoke for themselves."

Schwarber's October return following a knee injury helped fuel Chicago's first World Series title in 108 years, but he was sent down to Triple-A Iowa on Thursday after hitting .171 in 64 games this season.

Schwarber joined Iowa in time for Monday's home game against New Orleans, where he hit third and played left field. He was 1 for 4 in a 1-0 victory.
