Cubs phenom Javier Baez -- a consensus top-10 prospect -- has loads of power potential. It so happens that said power potential was on glorious display on Tuesday night in Baez's major-league debut against the Rockies (CHC 6, COL 5 in 12).

Please witness the future made present ...

There are first career home runs, and then there first career home runs that are opposite-field no-doubters in the 12th inning.

More to come -- wherein "more" means more Javier Baez home runs.
