San Diego Padres catcher Tim Federowicz homered in the third game of his rehab stint with the Fort Wayne TinCaps.

Recovering from March knee surgery, Federowicz began rehabbing with the TinCaps on Sunday. Through his first three games with the team, he is batting .273 (3-for-11) with a double, a home run, and three runs batted in. He is expected to stay with the TinCaps through the end of their current homestand (two more games).

Polanco, Chiefs one-hit Snappers

Starting pitcher Jhonny Polanco and three Peoria Chiefs relievers combined to one-hit the Beloit Snappers in a 1-0 victory Wednesday.

Sandber Pimentel, the fourth batter of the game, collected Beloit’s only hit, a single in the top of the 1st inning. Polanco gave up that lone hit, walked three, and struck out eight in six innings. RHP Cody Schumacher, LHP Nick Lomascolo and RHP Kyle Grana each pitched a scoreless inning in relief of Polanco.

Chiefs second baseman Darren Seferina went 0-for-4 to snap a 13-game on-base streak.

Cubs calling up Schwarber again

Chicago Cubs prospect Kyle Schwarber reportedly will be called back up to the big-league club after catcher Miguel Montero is placed on the disabled list with a thumb injury.

Both catchers played in the Midwest League. Montero batted .263 with 11 HR and 59 RBI in 115 games with the 2004 South Bend Silver Hawks. Schwarber batted .361 with 4 HR and 15 RBI in 23 games with the 2014 Kane County Cougars.

Schwarber was named MVP of the All-Star Futures Game on Sunday. He made his MLB debut with the Cubs earlier this year.
