The time to stash Javier Baez is now
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Disappointed that you didn't think to stash Oscar Taveras or Jon Singleton ahead of time now that they're up and contributing? Just be extra sure not to miss out on the next wave of prospects to get the call.

As I explain in the latest Prospects Report, my favorite of that wave (omitting the obvious Gregory Polanco) is Javier Baez, who offers outstanding power potential as a shortstop-eligible player.

His 2014 numbers are terrible, but a recent turnaround has him back in line to be the first of the Cubs' big-name prospects to break through, most likely at second or third base.

For more examples of prospects to stash in single-season formats, be sure to check out the column.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cubs shortstop prospect Javier Baez is heating up in a big way for Triple-A Iowa following a disappointing start. The 2011 first-round pick is batting .439 (18 for 41) with a .927 slugging percentage, 1.371 OPS, four home runs, eight doubles and 14 RBI in his last 10 games.

For the season, Baez is batting .225 with a .437 slugging percentage and .725 OPS in 39 games. He has one triple, seven home runs, nine doubles, 25 RBI, 22 runs, 12 walks, 56 strikeouts and four stolen bases.

Javier Baez needs to develop 'patience'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Following a 0-for-4 performance Tuesday, Cubs shortstop prospect Javier Baez saw his batting average drop to .147 in 27 games for Triple-A Iowa. 

“The biggest thing is he’s pressing a little bit, trying to do too much,” Cubs farm director Jaron Madison said, per the Chicago Sun-Times.

While most teams might panic after seeing one of their top prospects get off to such a poor start, Cubs manager Rick Renteria sees some upside in an early season slump.

"It’s really important for his development because now he’s got to [have] patience," Renteria said. "Believe it or not, those are positive things for us at this point. Patience is one of the things he’s going to have to have [in the big leagues]."
