CLEVELAND -- After hitting a double and talking a walk in four plate appearances in his Arizona Fall League finale, Chicago Cubs outfielder/catcher Kyle Schwarber was on his way to Cleveland on Monday night and could be his teams designated hitter in Tuesdays Game 1 of the World Series against the Indians.Reports are good, manager Joe Maddon said Monday afternoon. Hes swinging the bat well. Hes running really well, actually. Hes done some sliding drills, all that kind of stuff to just test the whole thing out.Schwarber, 23, has missed all but 2.5 games of the season with torn ligaments in his left knee after colliding with teammate Dexter Fowler in the outfield. He was cleared by his doctor last Monday to swing and run, but he cant play the field. He would be the first player to be out this long and play in the World Series, but the Cubs feel hes a special player with a special swing.His will is bigger than most, hitting coach John Mallee said. You would think it would be a little tougher not playing. See it and hit it. Thats him. I just saw his swing the other day and he hasnt missed a beat. Guess its like riding a bike for him.Schwarber is from Ohio and made his debut against the Indians, going 4-for-5 in his first career start at Progressive Field in June 2015. Last October, he hit five home runs for the Cubs, making him their career postseason home run leader. Hes also a fan favorite. With the designated hitter available for the first two games, Schwarber is likely to be in the starting lineup, which wont be announced until Tuesday.Hes given us another option to think about, Maddon said.The World Series rosters are due at 10 a.m. Tuesday.Schwarber hit 16 home runs to go along with a .355 on-base percentage after coming up from the minors in 2015. http://www.officiallionsgear.com/Lions-Graham-Glasgow-Draft-Jersey/ . As the crowd erupted, Davis knocked the ball off the glass and back into his hands. With 1:14 to go in overtime, Davis sixth block also became his 17th rebound. That, along with his 32 points -- which tied a career high -- proved too much for Denver to overcome, and the Pelicans held on for their third straight victory, 111-107 on Sunday night. http://www.officiallionsgear.com/Lions-Dwayne-Washington-Draft-Jersey/ . MLS Commissioner Don Garber and Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez also will attend the session, which was announced Monday. The league has discussed placing its next two expansion teams in Miami and Atlanta. http://www.officiallionsgear.com/Lions-Darius-Slay-Draft-Jersey/ . It was hard for Luck to pull off another comeback, or even get into the end zone, while standing on the sideline. Rivers threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to rookie Keenan Allen and Nick Novak kicked four field goals to give the Chargers a 19-9 victory against the Colts on Monday night. http://www.officiallionsgear.com/Lions-Marvin-Jones-Jr-Draft-Jersey/ . "Trying to breathe," he said with a grin. Bernier stopped 42 of 43 shots on Monday night, including all 22 in a hectic middle frame, his heroic performance propelling the Leafs toward an undue point in their final game before the Christmas break. http://www.officiallionsgear.com/Lions-Ashawn-Robinson-Draft-Jersey/ .Y. -- Sabres forward Drew Stafford has witnessed plenty of turmoil during his eight seasons in Buffalo. TORONTO -- After playing eight of their past 10 games on the road, the Toronto Raptors open a season-long six-game homestand Monday against the Philadelphia 76ers.When the Raptors defeated the Bucks 105-99 Friday at Milwaukee, they finished their 10-game grind with a 6-4 record.On the road, youve been edgy, youve been uptight, youve got the you-against-the-world mentality, Toronto coach Dwane Casey said Sunday. Now you come home to the comforts of home and relax and we cant do that. Weve got some good teams coming in, the young, athletic Philly team coming in, Memphis is playing well, the Lakers are playing well and Atlanta. Its going to be a tough homestand, it wont be a piece of cake whatsoever. The homestand will end with games against the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Minnesota Timberwolves.The Raptors (10-6) are 4-3 at home and Philadelphia is 0-5 on the road this season.The 76ers (4-13) are coming off a 112-108 loss to the Cavaliers at the Wells Fargo Center on Sunday after leading for the first three quarters.Philadelphia center Joel Embiid, who is coming back from foot injuries that cost him the past two seasons, will not make the trip to Toronto after scoring 22 points with nine rebounds in 25 minutes on Sunday.We played hard, Embiid said. We had a good defensive game. They just played better.The game Monday will be the sixth he will have missed this season. The restriction in minutes and the skipping of some games fit in with his rehabilitation program. He also did not play in the 105-89 loss to the Chicago Bulls on Friday.You come up with some really hard decisions that maybe dont favor me or us or whatever, 76ers coach Brett Brown said. But for the long-term lens that we all have, we have to be responsible with Joel Embiid. Winning a game in the middle of November in 20166, sometimes that takes a back seat.ddddddddddddThe 76ers were without point guard Jerryd Bayless on Sunday because of a sore left wrist. Bayless, a former Raptor, missed the first 13 games of the season after suffering a torn ligament in the wrist during training camp. The free-agent acquisition played in only three games. Bayless said his wrist was sore when he played against the Bulls on Friday.The Raptors made a season-best 14 3-pointers against the Bucks and had double-digit scoring from six players.While the offense is working, the concern remains the defense.Weve got to be more conscious of letting teams get easy buckets, transition buckets, make everything a lot tougher on them, said Toronto guard DeMar DeRozan, who is averaging 30.2 points. Especially from the 3. Just be more disciplined. We cant have mistakes. Once we get clicking defensively and everything comes together as one, we have a chance to be really good.Improving the defense is constantly on Caseys mind.If we have to get guys in there that are going to be committed to the defensive end, weve got to do that because to get where we want to go, were kidding ourselves if were not committed to that end, Casey said.Forward DeMarre Carroll is improving as he returns from knee surgery and that should help the Raptors defense. He also scored 14 points on Friday.Thats what Ive got to do, Carroll said. Theyre double-teaming Kyle (Lowry) and DeMar (DeRozan). Ive got to be able to space the floor, especially in the first unit. Im just trying to do my part. I know at the beginning of the season I wasnt doing my part, but now Im trying to step up, and Im just trying to progress and not look back.
