07:13 AM ET 05.21 | Ian Stewart picked up a rare Iowa Cubs start at third base recently with Josh Vitters having reinjured his left quad the day before, but Principal Park was a long way from where he'd like to be. Stewart's wrist is healthy, and he's very thankful the Cubs helped him get the surgery. But he knows he has dropped on the organization's depth chart. Last week in Washington, general manager Jed Hoyer was asked if Stewart still had a future with the Cubs. "I hope there's a future here, but at this point, it's going to be about performance," Hoyer said. ... Is he prepared to spend the entire season in the Minors? "I need to play to get everything figured out, and if I end up staying here the whole year, then it is what it is.

What did anyone expect from this guy? He was mediocre in Colorado, the best hitter's park in MLB. He sure wasn't going to magically get better in Chicago.
