Cubs' Javier Baez: Batting seventh Thursday

Baez is hitting seventh and playing second base Thursday.

The utility infielder jumps back into the lineup as Ian Happ moves to left field to spell Kyle Schwarber. Baez will stare down Reds left-hander Amir Garrett. Though he's struggled against southpaws so far in 2017 (.176/.243/.294), he boasts a career .263/.328/.433 line against them, and his presence in the lineup makes him worth considering in DFS and daily-transaction leagues.
