Keeping an eye on Javier Baez; Contingencies

Prior to Javier Baez’s 1-4, 0 strikeout performance today, he was batting .265 with an OBP of .357.  That’s nearly a 100 point split between his average and on base percentage in his first 56 plate appearances this season.  That’s the biggest split we’ve seen from him yet in his professional career.  While we’d prefer the sample to be somewhere near 100 plate appearances...

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...

Possible Javier Baez Position Change

The Chicago Cubs infield is extremely loaded at the moment; Anthony Rizzo, Addison Russell, Starlin Castro, and Kris Bryant currently makeup the current spots and the team still has Javier Baez waiting in the wings. If all of the players pan out, which there are only questions with a couple of them, something has to break. But with who? The Cubs had assigned Javier Baez to their...

Javier Baez: Where does he fit in the Chicago Cubs’ future?

Allan Henry-USA TODAY SportsJavier Baez was one of the most exciting parts of the Chicago Cubs season last year, but he wasn’t able to make the Opening Day roster this season.

Weighing Javier Baez’s Terrible MLB Debut

Projecting the 25-man roster

Yesterday, we heard the strongest whispers yet that Javier Baez was making the Opening Day roster. While not altogether unexpected, it nonetheless helps to shape the roster (and with just 2 weeks left, we’ll be hearing a lot more of these soon, I’d wager). The 5th OF and the 6th (or 7th) reliever aren’t the most pivotal positions on the team, but those are probably the only...
