  With Javier Baez now rehabbing with the Iowa Cubs, Starlin Castro‘s struggles along with the cloud of uncertainty with the trade deadline approaching, fans of the Chicago Cubs are trying to figure out how the pieces all fit together. Some people assume that once Baez is ready to return to the majors, he will take over second base pushing Addison Russell to short stop which would...

Report: Padres interested in Cubs’ Javier Baez

The San Diego Padres and Chicago Cubs have been connected in recent days and while a James Shields-for-Starlin Castro makes some sense, that swap is highly unlikely. The Padres, however, are showing interest in another Cubs shortstop. Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports that the Cubs and Padres have talked about Javier Baez in trade talks. Baez, 22, is a very talented player, but...

Report: Cubs trying for Cole Hamels; Offering Starlin Castro, Javier Baez

The Chicago Cubs have shown interest in Cole Hamels and have recently scouted him, as I wrote for Baseball Essential, but do the two teams have what it takes to complete a deal? With their deep farm system, the Cubs are well positioned to make a run at Hamels. The Cubs, however, prefer not to trade those young, talented players, since they plan to build around them. In trade talks...

Rumored Baez for Niese deal could work for Mets

Bear with me for a moment, but let’s imagine the Mets are not in a deep freefall with no end in sight. Let’s assume they didn’t cough up an 11-0 streak and could hit their way out of a paper bag. Pretend the New York Mets are legitimate playoff contenders this season. Better isn’t it? Unfortunately, we’ve still got a quandary on our hands. The Mets have way too much starting...

Chicago Cubs getting creative to find a spot for Javier Baez

Throughout both his major and minor league career, Javier Baez has been shuffled around the diamond. The one constant has always been his bat. The Chicago Cubs drafted Baez as a shortstop with the ninth overall selection of the 2011 draft.  He moved from short and began working at second base in 2014 due to Starlin Castro‘s presence in Chicago. Now, beginning this week, he will...

Chicago Cubs: Javier Baez coming soon?

The new look Chicago Cubs are significantly powered by players age 25 or under. Rizzo, Castro, Bryant, Russell, Hendricks, and Soler are leading the resurgence. However, let’s not forget another key player refining his game at the AAA level. Javier Baez has the potential to be a significant addition to the major league club as the year goes on. Baez needs to continue to improve...

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...
