VIDEO: Cubs phenom Javier Baez hits ball hard, also far
Watch this moonshot homer by Cubs top prospect Javier Baez. Then watch it again.
Javier Baez is regarded as the top prospect in a Cubs system that's pretty loaded with positional talent. As you'll soon see, the 21-year-old's flagship tool is his power. On that point, please do witness the sky-scraping home run he hit against the Rockies in Cactus League action on Wednesday night ...
At this point, the tantalized reader will note that the headline of this post indulged in no overstatement: Javier Baez did indeed hit the ball hard. And also far.
In matters related, Mr. Baez is coming off a 2013 season in which he slugged .578 and hit 37 home runs and 34 doubles across two minor-league rungs.
