For the season, Baez is hitting .244/.287/.486 with 21 home runs, 45 runs scored, 61 RBI and 13 stolen bases. He's 7-for-21 with five RBI in five games since the All-Star break.

He's added a .241/.286/.492 slash line with 21 home runs, 57 RBI and 43 runs scored through 322 plate appearances. Baez still carries a troubling 37.0 percent strikeout rate, his highest since 2014.

It's currently unknown if Baez could appear off the bench in the series finale. He can be considered day-to-day going forward.
