Whatever chance Ian Stewart had of being recalled to the majors by the Chicago Cubs prior to Monday night has probably slipped away. The once-promising young infielder was sent from the Colorado Rockies to Chicago last year, and he hit just .201 in 55 games with the Cubs. Stewart now appears to be stuck in the minors.
The 28-year-old is hitting .165 with the Cubs’ Triple-A affiliate in Iowa this year. On Tuesday night, he took to Twitter to vent about how the Cubs have no interest in calling him up and how manager Dale Sveum doesn’t like him. It all started when a follower asked him when he would be called back up to the majors.

Stewart then began getting bashed by some other followers, who were quick to point out that he is making $2 million this season to play in the minors. He acknowledged that he is making a lot of money but began complaining about how the Cubs and Sveum have it out for him.
