Cubs choose former Redbird

The Chicago Cubs selected former Illinois State pitcher Brock Stewart during the Rule V Draft in December. Stewart, who played for the Redbirds from 2011-2013, comes over from the Toronto Blue Jays system.

Prior to the 2020 semester, Stewart had appeared in 46 Major League games for the Los Angeles Dodgers and Blue Jays, with his best year coming in 2017 with Los Angeles. There he had a 3.41 ERA in 34.1 innings. Toronto claimed Stewart off waivers last July.

Stewart is one of 13 former Redbirds currently playing affiliated or independent professional baseball.
