VIDEO: Cubs prospect Javier Baez hits ball hard, also far

Cubs infield prospect Javier Baez has perhaps the most raw power in the loaded farm system of those very same Cubs. He endured a slow start this season at Triple-A Iowa, but he's been rounding into form of late (.654 SLG thus far in July). As evidence of that claim, please witness his sky-scraping spank against Omaha on Monday night ...

It's the minors, so the action-news footage is necessarily grainy, but you can tell by the routes of those fans in pursuit of Baez's well-struck baseball that the baseball was well-struck!

Put that clout in Wrigley, and it's probably bouncing across Waveland Avenue, which might actually be the case come September.
