Kyle Schwarber isn't surprised the Chicago Cubs demoted him, saying "the numbers spoke for themselves."

Schwarber was sent down to Triple-A Iowa on Thursday after hitting .171 in 64 games this season.

The Cubs haven't given Schwarber a timetable for a return to the Majors.

"A demotion is a demotion. That's obviously something that you don't want to have, and it ticks you off a little bit," Schwarber said. "You can't press, you can't do anything like that. But you try to make things happen. You've got to go back to what made you successful in the first place."
