VIDEO: Cubs prospect Javier Baez hits it over the roof

Watch on in mounting appreciation as Cubs prospect Javier Baez smites a ball hard and also far ...

The naysayers say nay, but the rest of us say: golly. Yes, the footage is middling-def, but, like the man in the booth says, the young man hit the cowhide orb over the darn roof.

Baez is struggling in this, his age-21 season -- a .201/.270/.396 line for Triple-A Iowa (he's trending upward in recent days, though). Still, you can see why his tremendous right-handed power makes him a frontline prospect.
