We'll see plenty of Schwartz this season, and be glad he was available, but I don't think it will happen out of camp.
Agreed. JR posted a stat today that during the last lockout shortened season, only 2 Blues played every game. With games almost every other day, there's bound to be injuries. Schwartz will get plenty of time with the Blues I think. It sounds like the only guy he could be out in camp is Porter...and personally, I'd think it makes more sense to keep Porter as a spare than to have Schwartz sitting in the pressbox most nights. Let Schwartz get big minutes in Peoria and when they need him in the Blues lineup, call him up!
