Former Indiana catcher Kyle Schwarber is headed back to the big leagues.

Fresh off his MVP performance in the MLB Futures Game on Sunday, Schwarber will be called up on Friday to rejoin the Chicago Cubs in Atlanta for a series with the Braves. Starting catcher Miguel Montero was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a thumb injury.

Schwarber hit .364 in six games with the Cubs in June, including a triple and a home run. The Cubs will carry three catchers during Montero's absence: Schwarber, David Ross, and Taylor Teagarden.
