Cubs starting pitcher Kyle Schwarber (19-11) is doubtful to start Saturday’s game against the Dodgers because of a sore left knee.
Schwarber was placed on the disabled list with the injury Tuesday.
Schwarbers season is on hold.
Cubs pitcher Kyle Walker (15-11, 4.45 ERA) is likely to get the start at first base Saturday against the Giants.
Walker will likely be placed on waivers.
The Cubs are scheduled to take on the Dodgers in San Francisco.
