JAVIER BAEZ RUMORS & GOSSIP

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.

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.

Now, beginning this week, he will...

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...
