Down on the Farm Update: Cub’s Javier Baez

Baseball is a game of averages: average running, average fielding and everything in between. Even when a talented prospect gets called up to the Majors they can both prosper and struggle at the same time. Sometimes struggles are plentiful and after a dip at the end of 2014, a slow Spring Training and some overwhelming personal issues, heading back down to Triple-A for some work isn’t...

Javier Baez and His Swing
