Cubs' Javier Baez: Potential move to center field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Javier Baez will play some center field in winter ball in Puerto Rico.

The Chicago Cubs have a glut of middle infielders and potentially could lose Dexter Fowler via free agency. If this experiment takes, this cures two problems in one.

Cubs' Javier Baez: Starting at shortstop in Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Javier Baez is starting at shortstop and hitting ninth in the order for Game 4 of the NLDS.

Baez collected two hits in relief for Addison Russell during Game 3 after the starting shortstop exited the game following an injury to his ankle. With Russell still not cleared for action Tuesday, Baez will get the start at shortstop and bat ninth in the batting order. The 22-year-old has struggled against the Cardinals' Game 4 starter John Lackey -- in eight career at-bats against the veteran, Baez has not recorded a hit and has struck out four times.

by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cubs second baseman Javier Baez is not in the lineup for the game Thursday against Pittsburgh, Jesse Rogers of ESPNChicago.com reports.

Tommy La Stella will get the start at second with Addison Russell sliding in at shortstop for Baez, who will sit after reaching base safely in six of his last eight games.

Cubs SS Javier Baez goes 2 for 4 in Tuesday's win
by CBSSports.com Staff | CBSSports.com

Cubs shortstop Javier Baez went 2-for-4 with a double in Tuesday's 2-1 victory over the Pirates. Baez seems to be hitting his stride more and more with each game, with the 22-year-old star prospect now having hit safely five of his last seven contests, including three consecutive multi-hit performances in that span.

While he certainly displayed some power by hitting nine homers in his 2014 stint with the major league club, Baez still scuffled his way to a .169 average and 95 strikeouts over 213 at-bats.

A spectacular 2015 campaign in Triple-A Iowa that saw him hit .324 prior to his Sept. 1 call-up appears to have done wonders for Baez's overall game, although he has yet to truly thrive in the power department. The Cubs figure to give Baez as much seasoning as possible for the remainder of the season in the hopes of preparing him for a starting role on the 2016 squad.

Cubs INF Javier Baez returns to the big leagues, starting Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Cubs top prospect Javier Baez has been recalled from Triple-A Iowa, and he is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Reds. Baez will be making his season debut, and will bat seventh while playing second base.

Baez got his first taste of the big leagues in 2014, when he hit nine home runs in 52 games--but he hit just .169.
