by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Cubs premier infield prospect Javier Baez will be sidelined approximately 4-8 weeks with a fracture of the left ring finger sustained in a Triple-A game Sunday, per ESPN.

He will be re-evaluated to determine a more exact timeline for his absence.

Baez sustained the injury sliding head first into second base on a successful steal attempt. He was taken to the hospital for x-rays.

Baez boasts a .314 average with eight home runs and seven stolen bases for Iowa.

Cubs prospect Javier Baez to give third base a try
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Cubs prospect Javier Baez is getting ready to play yet another new position with Triple-A Iowa. Baez, who has been splitting time between shortstop and second base, will make a start at third base at some point in the near future,  Cubs director of player development Jaron Madison told The Des Moines Register

The Cubs have been searching for a way to have Baez, Starlin Castro, Addison Russell and Kris Bryant in the lineup together. And, with Bryant getting looks in left field for the Cubs, moving Baez to third could be the final piece to that puzzle. Baez has reportedly already started taking grounders at the hot corner.

Baez has been red hot at the plate with Iowa. Over his last 10 games, the 2011 first-round draft pick is batting .351 (13 for 37) with four home runs and 12 RBI. He's still striking out at a high clip, with nine punchouts in that 10-game span.

The team has not declared when they expect to bring Baez back up to Chicago.

Cubs may use Javier Baez at designated hitter
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

The Cubs will play interleague road games in a week. The trip to A.L. parks means that the team needs to sort through candidates to play designated hitter. 

"We have some ideas and thoughts,” manager Joe Maddon said, per ESPN. “We’ll see how it plays."

The Cubs may call up a prospect to take the at bats at DH, and Javier Baez is a candidate.

Baez was the team's 2011 first-round draft pick. He's hitting .306 with five home runs and 21 RBI at Triple-A. 

"Javier is doing better,” Maddon said. “I hear a lot of good things about him." Baez was a spring cut after striking out too much. He has 32 this year. 

Despite hitting .327 with 12 home runs at Double-A, 2014 first-rounder Kyle Schwarber isn't going to get the call. 

"I heard that (outfielder Chris Denorfia) is doing better,” Maddon said. “I’m not sure if (Tommy La Stella) would be ready by that time. But no we haven’t talked about Schwarber yet."

Cubs pushing for consistency from prospect Javier Baez
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Cubs vice president of player development Jason McLeod isn't considering a promotion for prospect Javier Baez anytime soon, according to ESPN.com.

Baez, who primarily plays second base, is also not being considered for a move to the outfield as of yet, according to McLeod. Baez is one of Chicago's top prospects and is hitting .322 with 17 RBI in 90 at-bats for Triple-A Iowa this season.
