Report: Cubs 2B prospect Baez expected back Thursday

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/23/15) Cubs premier second base prospect Javier Baez is expected to return to extended spring training Thursday after a bereavement period following the death of his sister, per ESPN.

Baez had opened the season with Triple-A Iowa, managing just nine hits in 52 at-bats with 20 strikeouts. He has not played since April 9. He struggled in the big leagues a year ago, compiling a .169/.227/.324 slash line in 213 at-bats with the Cubs.

Joe Maddon: Javier Baez could be close to joining Triple-A club

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/21/15) Cubs manager Joe Maddon indicated that infielder Javier Baez could be close to rejoining the minor-league club, according to MLB.com.

Baez began his 2015 campaign in extended spring training after collecting just nine hits in 52 at-bats while striking out 20 times. He has been on bereavement leave from Triple-A Iowa since April 9 following the passing of his sister.

"From our perspective, we want him to take as much time as necessary," Maddon said.

Joe Maddon favors sending Cubs INF Javier Baez to extended spring

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/20/15) Cubs manager Joe Maddon said that although it hasn't been discussed, sending infielder Javier Baez to extended spring is a good idea, according to the Chicago Tribune

Baez has been on bereavement leave from Triple-A Iowa since April 9 following the passing of his sister. 

It was initially thought that Baez would begin the season with the big club but struggled to make an impact during spring training.

Cubs prospect Javier Baez takes bereavement leave of absence

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/9/15) Cubs shortstop Javier Baez will take a bereavement leave of absence from Triple-A Iowa to mourn the death of his 21-year-old sister Noely, who was born with spina beifida, per the team's official website The Cubs released the following statement:

"As many of you know, Javy and Noely shared a wonderfully close and special relationship. Javy will take a leave of absence from the Iowa Cubs to be with his family during this difficult time. Understandably, Javy has asked for privacy while he and his family mourn, and we ask Cubs fans to join us in keeping the Baez family in their thoughts and prayers."

Iowa will open the season Thursday night at Memphis.

Cubs option Javier Baez, reassign Kris Bryant, Addison Russell

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/30/15) The Cubs cut three of their key young players from major-league camp Monday, optioning infielder Javier Baez to Triple-A Iowa and reassigning third baseman Kris Bryant and shortstop Addison Russell to minor-league camp.

“I have a feeling they’ll be back at the right time and help us win a lot of games over the next many years," Cubs president Theo Epstein said, per CSNChicago.com.

Baez was initially expected to open the season as the team's starting second baseman after racking up 213 at-bats in his rookie season in 2014. He hit just .169/.227/.324 with nine home runs, 20 RBI and five stolen bases last season but also struck out 95 times. Baez struggled to make an impact at the plate this spring, collecting just nine hits in 52 at-bats while striking out 20 times.

"He’s so close to getting it figured out in the batter’s box. But we just feel like Triple-A is the right forum for him," Epstein said. "We all agree that Javy is an extremely talented player, who’s going to be a big part of this organization for a long time."

Bryant has been one of the best hitters in either spring-training league in 2015, going 17 for 40 with nine home runs and 15 RBI. He is expected to make his major-league debut during 2015. Russell, the biggest name from the trade that sent Jeff Samardzija to Oakland last season, hit .324/.359/.486 with one home run in 37 spring at-bats.

"We’re more likely to get (Bryant) sooner than later at this point with how he’s playing and how close he showed (he is to majors)," Epstein said. "He’s really close to being not just in the big leagues, but to playing an important role on the team."

With Baez and Bryant out of the picture, the Cubs will likely choose between Arismendy Alcantara, Mike Olt and Tommy La Stella for playing time at second base and third base.
