by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cubs infielder Javier Baez is still having issues with strikeouts, according to FoxSports.com.

Baez is currently playing in winter ball, where he's struck out in 21 of his 43 at-bats. Strikeouts were a major issue for Baez once he was promoted last season. The 22-year-old posted a 41.5 percent strikeout rate through 213 at-bats with the Cubs. 

Baez is currently involved in the playoffs, where he's been dropped from second to seventh in the lineup.

Cubs infielder Javier Baez working on improving timing
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Cubs have been impressed with how infielder Javier Baez trained this offseason after he hit .169 in 52 games in 2014. Baez, who has been playing winter ball in Puerto Rico, has also lost 15 pounds since the end of the 2014 season.

"His approach to the game and to practice has been really good all winter," Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein said of Baez, per MLB.com. "He's been showing up to the park [in Puerto Rico] early and working to get better. He's been playing the game hard, he's been playing good defense, he's been staying focused and helping his team win."

Cubs hitting coach John Mallee spent five days working with Baez in Puerto Rico.

"My timing was really late, so that's why I wasn't getting to the fastball and other pitches," Baez said of what he learned from film sessions. "I'm working on getting the timing back and we'll see what happens from there."
