CHICAGO (AP) -- Ryan Sweeney says he's staying with the Chicago Cubs.

The outfielder posted Tuesday on Twitter that he's "so excited to be back in Chicago" and thanked the organization and fans for believing in him.

Sweeney batted .266 with six homers and 19 RBIs in 70 games this season. He spent time on the 60-day disabled list because of a broken rib after he crashed into a wall in late June.
