by staff

Stewart signed a free-agent deal with the Cubs in the offseason. He’s appeared in 17 big-league games, including six starts, all with the Minnesota Twins from 2018-19. Stewart became the choice to start Monday because he is adequately stretched out and should help avoid taxing the bullpen. He’s pitched at least five innings in each of his four starts with Iowa this season.
