Stewart came up with the Cubs as a middle infielder in 1963. He was purchased from the Cubs by the Chicago White Sox during the 1967 season. After playing in their minor league system for two seasons, he was drafted by the Cincinnati Reds from the ChiSox in the 1968 rule 5 draft. On November 29, 1971, Stewart was part of a trade that brought Joe Morgan, Cesar Geronimo, Ed Armbrister, Jack Billingham, and Denis Menke to the Reds from the Houston Astros for Stewart, Lee May and Tommy Helms.
