Cubs | Javier Baez hitting well

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 06:14:45 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B Javier Baez is hitting .333 with two homers and 10 RBIs in his last 10 games at Triple-A Iowa.

Fantasy Tip: We could see Baez in the next few weeks with the uncertainty the team has at second base. Arismendy Alcantara is there now but could shift to the outfield to make room for Baez. Start stashing Baez in mixed leagues.

Cubs | No plans to trade Starlin Castro

Fri, 18 Jul 2014 11:08:21 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Starlin Castro has drawn trade interest, but the team has no plans to trade him this month.

Fantasy Tip: If the Cubs do trade Castro, Javier Baez would probably get called up and play shortstop. The team could also move Baez to second base eventually and have Addison Russell play shortstop.

Cubs | Javier Baez starting at 2B

Thu, 17 Jul 2014 16:47:26 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Javier Baez is starting at second base at Triple-A Iowa Thursday, July 17.

Fantasy Tip: This is a big development because it means the Cubs may be close to promoting Baez, one of their top overall prospects, to the majors to play the keystone soon. Baez should be owned in all NL-only leagues and stashed in deep mixed leagues.

Cubs | Javier Baez homers in Futures Game

Mon, 14 Jul 2014 08:38:37 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Javier Baez hit a two-run homer in the 2014 All-Star Futures Game Sunday, July 13.

Fantasy Tip: There's no strong indication that Baez will be called up anytime soon. Chicago is keeping Starlin Castro at shortstop and haven't tried Baez for an extended period at any other position. Arismendy Alcantara's presence with the big club also hinders Baez's chances for now. But Baez has been taking ground balls at second base, and in deep leagues, it wouldn't hurt to tuck Baez into a bench spot.

Cubs | Javier Baez starting to heat up

Mon, 23 Jun 2014 19:41:27 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Javier Baez went 2-for-4 at the plate for Triple-A Iowa Monday, June 23, and he has gone 7-for-20 in his last five games.

Fantasy Tip: After hitting just .172 in April, Baez has slowly been finding his footing. That being said, he will have to show he can sustain his recent success to have any shot at getting called up before late in the season.

Chicago Cubs SS Javier Baez is hitting .223 with 10 homers and 35 RBIs in 211 at-bats at Triple-A Iowa.

Fantasy Tip: Baez could still come up to cover an injury before September, but he needs to have a stretch of three or four weeks where he tears the cover off the ball.

Cubs | Pitcher impressed with prospects

Wed, 28 May 2014 16:04:58 -0700

Chicago Cubs RP Blake Parker has been very impressed with SS Javier Baez and 2B Arismendy Alcantara at Triple-A Iowa. Baez is hitting just .225 with seven home runs and 25 RBIs. "I think he's handling it real well," Parker said of Baez. "Early in the season, I think he had high expectations for himself. He wanted to do a whole lot for the team; he always wants to produce for the team. He's staying within himself now and he's producing for us and doing what he's supposed to be doing."
