JAVIER BAEZ RUMORS & GOSSIP

Chicago Cubs: why Javier Baez is vaulable

The Chicago Cubs have been the center of attention during the 2015 MLB offseason. The Cubs started with a bang when they signed John Lackey to a two year deal worth roughly 32 million dollars. Then they surprised everyone when they were able to land Ben Zobrist. Finally, they signed arguably the best available position player in Jason Heyward. The icing on the cake was that Heyward...

Chicago Cubs trade rumors: Javier Baez being traded?

Trade talks between the Chicago Cubs and Tampa Bay Rays have been heating up as of late and it appears the Rays are targeting Javier Baez. Baez, who is still only 23 years old, seems to be exactly what the Rays are looking for, a young impact bat. Although Baez struggled mightily with his strikeout numbers in 2014, when he was re-called in 2015, he showed steady improvement on his...

Projecting Javier Baez and Quantifying his Improvements

Taking full advantage of the September roster expansion, the Chicago Cubs called up 22-year-old infielder Javier Baez to help fortify the team’s middle-infield situation. This isn’t Baez’s first taste of the big leagues. In fact, he doesn’t even qualify as a rookie anymore. As you probably recall, he spent the final two months of 2014 season in the majors, where he turned...

WATCH: Cubs' Baez swings so hard he falls down

Javier Baez was one of the prospects called up by the Chicago Cubs this week when rosters expanded to 40. Baez has a pretty simple rep as a player: he strikes out a lot, and he’s got ridiculous power. So when he came up in the ninth inning of Wednesday’s Reds-Cubs game against Aroldis Chapman, with Chicago down 7-4 and two men on base, it seemed pretty obvious that he’d be...

Report: Javier Baez Sustains Hand Injury, Out 4-8 Weeks

Javier Baez, who was long considered one of the Chicago Cubs’ top prospects before being called up to the big leagues last year, sustained a hand injury that will sideline him for at least one month and perhaps two. Tommy Birch of the Des Moines Register reported Baez appeared to jam a finger while sliding headfirst into second base for the Iowa Cubs, Chicago’s Triple-A affiliate...

Javy Baez Will Be an All-Star

Javy Baez will be an All-Star in this league. Yes, the same Baez that has struck out 41.6% of the times he has stepped in the box. No, I do not buy my cars from Josh Gordon. I’ll admit, it is hard to defend a guy hitting .173 with as many strikeouts as Javy Baez but I’m not ready to call him a bust like some fans are, 37 games into his career. In your best 30 for 30 voice, what...

Enough is Enough: Javier Baez is a Bust

The excuses are running thin, quick. For those claiming that his swing is on point and that he is Gary Sheffield-esq and that he’s still young and that power hitters strikeout a ton – GET OVER IT! It’s better to offer no excuse than a bad one - George friggin’ Washington  Javier Baez has proven that regardless of your excuses, he isn’t any good and should not be a part...

Javier Baez and His Swing

Javier Baez’s debut so far in the major leagues has been “hit or miss”. I mean that in a literal sense, Baez has either hit a home run or struck out in exactly half of his 74 major league at-bats. While he has shown some extreme power, his strikeout rate is troubling. Most of his power in generated from the wild hack of a swing he has. Of course, since he only 21, he still...
