    导出博客文章CHICAGO -- The Cubs havent ruled out a possible return from injured slugger Kyle
    Schwarber?for the World Series.?Schwarber, who tore two ligaments in his left
    knee in just the third game of the regular season, has been cleared by doctors
    to hit. He joined the Mesa Solar Sox in the Arizona Fall League on Saturday.It
    was a pleasant surprise, Cubs president Theo Epstein said before Game 6 of the
    National League Championship Series, in which the Cubs beat the Dodgers 5-0 to
    advance to the World Series. We got news that was better than expected.After
    Schwarber received clearance from his doctor in Dallas on Monday, the outfielder
    immediately called?Epstein to plead his case.He asked for a chance to do this,
    Epstein said. With as hard as Kyle has worked and as much as this means to him
    -- and potentially us -- we wanted to give him that opportunity.The team hopes
    Schwarber will be available to be its designated hitter for World Series games
    in Cleveland. The?Indians?will?host Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday.Were
    going to evaluate him day to day from a medical standpoint and a baseball
    standpoint, Epstein said.Schwarber flew from Dallas to Los Angeles on Monday
    afternoon and hit in the batting cage. He then took batting practice with the
    Cubs at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday. By Thursday, he was taking batting practice
    at the teams spring facility in Mesa, Arizona.He hit second in the order for
    Mesa in Saturday nights Arizona Fall League game,?going 0 for 3 with a walk as
    the designated hitter. He watched the Cubs face the Dodgers on a tablet in the
    dugout between at-bats.I felt like I put in two good at-bats, Schwarber said.
    The first two I chased a little bit, a little antsy up at the plate as expected.
    But once it started getting back to being normal baseball again, it started
    slowing down.There were no games in the Arizona Fall League on Sunday, and a
    spokesman for the Cubs said it was a scheduled off day for Schwarber. There was
    no word on the plan for the slugger for Mesas game against the Surprise Saguaros
    on Monday afternoon.Epstein said Schwarbers only medical concern at the moment
    is blisters after taking so much batting practice. Hell wear a knee brace during
    games.I have full confidence in my knee, Schwarber said. My knee doesnt bother
    me. It was my hands that hurt the worst. Ive got about eight blisters on them. I
    guess I should have kept rubbing a bat or something.Hes made it to a best-case
    scenario after six months, Epstein said. Were not ruling anything in; were not
    ruling anything out. Were not getting ahead of ourselves. We have a lot of work
    here before this becomes pertinent.Schwarber burst onto the scene last year,
    hitting 16 home runs after being called up from Triple-A Iowa. He then hit
    another five in the playoffs to become the Cubs all-time postseason home run
    leader.Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

    . The 29-year-old from Port Colborne, Ont., has nothing but good
    things to say about former U.S. marine Liz (Girlrilla) Carmouche ahead of their
    co-main event Wednesday on the UFCs "Fight for the Troops" televised card in
    Fort Campbell, Ky.After a career in England with Charlton and Leeds, Lloyd Sam
    has established himself as one of MLS most dangerous wingers. Sam made the move
    to the Red Bulls in 2012 after his contract at Elland Road was not renewed by
    then manager Neil Warnock.Since then the England-born Ghanaian international has
    gone on to win two MLS Supporters Shields in 2013 and 2015, and is now hoping to
    go one step beyond and win the elusive MLS Cup this season. Ahead of New York
    Red Bulls trip to face New England this Friday - live on Sky Sports - we asked
    Sam 10 MLS-related questions to find more out about his American
    adventure...Hows life in America?Ive been here a while now, for four years, and
    it pretty much feels like home. Ive always been around American influences and
    American people, it wasnt hard.My brother went to an American university, so I
    would always come over. It would often be a holiday destination for me, too.What
    is it like playing alongside two Englishmen in Bradley and Shaun
    Wright-Phillips? Sam enjoys playing alongside fellow Englishman Bradley
    Wright-Phillips When Bradley came over we came from a similar area of south
    London and it felt like I was even more at home so its good having those guys. I
    already knew him and Shaun. Theyre very good guys and its good to have them
    here.Whats New York like as a soccer city? Sam feels the introduction of NYCFC
    has helped develop an exciting football atmosphere in New York In New York, Id
    still stay football is not one of the primary sports with all the other big
    sports weve got such as basketball and American football. But America as a
    whole, the sport is getting bigger and its catching up with the rest of the
    world in that way.In New York, the excitement when the two teams play is one of
    the main things that is different since theyve come in. The stadiums are full
    and theres a lot of excitement in the air when we play.How would you assess the
    first month of the season? A classy brace from Felipe saw New York Red Bulls
    come from behind to win 4-3 against Houston Dynamos Its been tough. Its not the
    start that we wanted to have, but we won our last game so hopefully we can get
    our season underway now with a few more wins.Weve got a tough game again on
    Friday [against New England]. Every team is very personal with us this season,
    after last year we did really well.We could tell that this was going to be a
    harder season so weve just got to be turning up to every game and be ready for
    the battle.How did the move from Leeds to the Red Bulls happpen? Sam was
    released by Leeds at the end of the 2011/2012 season I was at Leeds but I had
    just gone on loan to Notts County and I had a pretty good loan.dddddddddddd I
    went there, had 10 games and scored five goals.I was expecting to come back to
    the Championship somewhere, Leeds or somewhere else, I was waiting around for
    the right offer but it didnt come. Then the New York offer came in, so while I
    was contemplating things in England, I thought let me see what that is like.They
    told us to come out and see the place, I saw it and felt right, the rest is
    history because they had a very good team at the time and Im still here after
    four years.I never wouldve thought I would be saying that when I first left but
    Ive got no regrets with my decision.What was it like playing with Thierry Henry?
    Sam played with Thierry Henry at the Red Bulls That was definitely an
    experience. He still hadnt lost much, maybe a little bit of speed but his brain
    may have even been quicker.Hes a very intense guy to be around but it was
    definitely a fun experience. He would always be around you, his passes, his eyes
    were everywhere! It was fun to play with him. He had high standards for himself
    and everyone else. When he was around he just had a presence that hed want you
    to be on the top of your game whatever you do. Do you ever get starstruck by any
    of the other players in the league? Kaka is Orlando Citys captain When you have
    Thierry Henry as a team-mate I dont think you can get starstruck. But there are
    big players, Kaka was one who I thought OK, this is a player I rate highly.
    Differences between MLS and the Championship? Sam feels MLS matches the
    Championship for physicality I wouldnt say there are huge differences. MLS is a
    very physical league, the Championship is very physical too. Theres a lot of
    talented players over here and its not that different when I think about it
    now. Its not that different from the Championship, theres lots of very difficult
    games and every game anyone can win. Any lesser-known players in MLS viewers on
    Sky should be looking out for? Lee Nguyen is one of New Englands most dangerous
    players, according to Sam Every team has got decent players you have to watch
    out for.Were playing Friday against New England and Ill name one of their
    players and thats Lee Nguyen, hes a very good player.Hes in the national team
    now but hes one to watch out for. Collectively theyve got a decent team and
    people will be surprised [of their quality] if they watch more games.Would you
    like to finish your career in MLS?Why not? You never know what can happen, but
    if Im fit why not? Also See: Ronaldinho set for MLS or China DC United sign
