PHOENIX, Ariz. - Cubs skipper Joe Maddon addressed the media for the first time since Kyle Schwarber was placed on the disabled list with a torn ACL & LCL.

"My comment to him was that this is your reality right now. Wait until the surgery occurs and then beat up the surgery. When that gets done, come and rehab with us. Then just take it a day at a time like everything else with your own personal reality right now. We're going to miss him. No doubt we're going to miss him. On and off the field, he's a big part of what we do. He needs our support. He's going to get well. But, he has to cope with this daily and it's about him."
