12/2 Could Stewart be next Cubs 3B?

The Cubs’ pursuit of a third baseman may lead them to Colorado. The Denver Post reports the Cubs are interested in Ian Stewart, and the Rockies have asked for versatile infielder Blake DeWitt in return. A left-handed hitter, Stewart battled injuries in 2011, and batted .156 in 48 games with the Rockies. He was the Rockies’ starting third baseman to begin the season but suffered a season-ending wrist injury at Triple-A Colorado Springs on Aug. 4 but took part in instructional league in the fall. He has a career .236 average with 54 homers and 187 RBIs. A first-round pick in 2003, Stewart also injured his wrist in the Arizona Fall League in ’05.
