Cubs pleased with how Javier Baez has bounced back
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/23/14) 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."

Javier Baez starting at second base Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/17/14) Cubs infield prospect Javier Baez is starting at second base Thursday.

Baez is one of the team's better minor-league talents, but will see some time at second. The club already has Starlin Castro at short in the majors, and just acquired shortstop Addison Russell, so Baez could see time at other positions. 

The time to stash Javier Baez is now
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/5/14) 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.

Javier Baez beginning to turn his season around
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/27/14) 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
(5/14/14) 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]."
