Tsuyoshi Wada struggles against Padres Wednesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cubs pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada struggled Wednesday against the Padres.

Wada allowed five runs on five hits over four innings. He struck out four and walked four. The Padres were on to Wada early. Yangervis Solarte drove in the game’s first run on a triple, and Carlos Quentin added a sac fly. 

Wada was able to compose himself for two innings, but allowed another run in the fourth. Things continued to unravel in the fifth. Wada walked the first two hitters of the inning before giving up a run-scoring double. He then issued two more walks, bringing in another run. Wada got himself out of the inning, but was replaced in the sixth.

With the loss, Wada dropped to 0-1 on the year. His next start will come against the Rockies.

Cubs considering moving Kris Bryant to right field
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Cubs have had internal discussions about transitioning prospect Kris Bryant from third base to right field, according to CSN Chicago. However, the talks have not progressed to making that move just yet.

"He can do it," general manager Jed Hoyer said. "He played center in college, and he’s played right. He feels good out there. The biggest focus for him right now is he’s working on his defense. He is almost 6-6, and with that the fundamentals of playing third base are more challenging.

"In the future, I would never say never that we wouldn’t put him out there. But right now, our focus is third."

Cubs pleased with how Javier Baez has bounced back
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer tried to downplay Tuesday the significance of prospect Javier Baez moving from shortstop to second base at Triple-A Iowa.

"The Baez second-base thing is really more big-picture than anything else," Hoyer said, per CSN Chicago. "We want to increase his versatility. We thought it was the right thing to do to start putting him there. ... These moves are not connected.

"We went into the year thinking we would move him around a bit earlier, and he struggled offensively. We thought it was going to be the wrong time to have this guy worry about a defensive change. (So) we held off on it, and really waited until he got going offensively. We’re pretty proud of what he’s done this year. In some ways, it’s been ideal for him."

Baez had a chance to be up in the majors by now, but a slow start offensively cost him that opportunity. Still, he looks like a potential September callup and has gotten on track offensively at Iowa. He hit .275 with four home runs and 21 RBI in 28 June games and is batting .275 with five home runs and 15 RBI in 18 July games.

"He really built on every single month, until the last three or four weeks, when he’s been outstanding. Hopefully, we’ll continue to see that trajectory. In the minor leagues, you want to see guys finishing strong. You want to see them conquer that level, and his ability to fight through what was a difficult start has been really impressive."
