Cubs notes: Ross talks DH options, OD starter

CHICAGO — Cubs manager David Ross has already discussed the possibility of Kyle Schwarber serving as a designated hitter. The outfielder’s name has come up as a future DH candidate since he broke into the Majors, but Ross wanted to let Schwarber know he still has a home in left field.
