Schwarber was acquired Thursday from Washington for a minor league pitcher.

“It’s definitely a little whirlwind there,” Schwarber said. “Getting the call late that night and trying to scramble and make sure you get everything in order.”

He expects to start a minor league rehab assignment “pretty soon.”

“I think it’s not going to be too long,” Schwarber said. “Trust me I’m itching to get back out. It’s been too long and I’m ready to get back out there and play baseball.”

Schwarber, who was hitting .253 with 25 homers and 53 RBIs in 72 games, last played on July 2. He hit .412 in the 2016 World Series, helping the Chicago Cubs win their first championship since 1908, after playing just two regular-season games in early April before tearing the ACL and LCL ligaments in his left knee.

Schwarber is not the only key reinforcement expected to join the Red Sox in August.
