Cubs option Javier Baez, reassign Kris Bryant, Addison Russell

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:59 pm ET) 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.

Cubs' Javier Baez shaken up after collision at second base Friday

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/27/15) Cubs shortstop Javier Baez was in the middle of a nasty collision Friday at second base while trying to turn a double play. It looked bad enough manager Joe Maddon was a bit nervous Baez may have suffered a serious injury, reports MLB.com.

"I asked him when was the last time a Puerto Rican had played in the NFL, because he just felt it right there," Maddon said of the crash with the Angels' Kole Calhoun on a double play. "[Baez] got smoked. I didn't know what was wrong with him, but he got hammered. I loved it."

Baez remained in the game and turned the double play. It is unknown yet whether Baez will make the final roster for Opening Day.

Cubs IF Javier Baez not a lock for 25-man roster

by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/25/15) Although Cubs manager Joe Maddon has been impressed by the play of Javier Baez, he has yet to decide if he will make the team's 25-man roster, according to mlbblogs.com. 

“I have no idea where that came from,” Maddon said. “That hasn’t been decided yet,” regarding reports that Baez was going to make the roster.

Baez is struggling this spring, going 5 for 39 with 14 strikeouts. Maddon talks about the possibility of sending him down to the Minor Leagues.

“There are the occasions where sometimes it works in reverse,” Maddon said. “A guy like him, to go back and accept going back in Triple-A and getting it done there, he might renege at that thought and maybe you’re not going to get the full adjustment you’re looking for and it might take longer.

“If a guy fails at the Major League level and thinks he belongs in the Major Leagues and then knows he failed, if he goes back, it might be easier to get the point across.”

Maddon: Cubs accept Javier Baez is going to strike out a lot

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/23/15) If there is one thing the Cubs have definitely learned about infielder Javier Baez is that he swings and misses a lot. Baez struck out 350 times in 319 games in the minors, he struck out 95 times in 52 games as a rookie in 2014 and already has 13 strikeouts in 12 games this spring.

It appears the Cubs have accepted Baez will always have a high strikeout rate, but as long as he excels in other areas, they can live with it.

"He's always going to strike out," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said, per MLB.com. "It's not even about strikeouts, it's about organizing his strike zone a little better. ... If he could somehow get to be a better decision-maker and then test that forceful swing he's got in the strike zone, let's see what happens there."

Cubs' Maddon: Javier Baez 'no lock' to make team

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/19/15) Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Thursday that infielder Javier Baez is not assured of making the Opening Day roster, MLB.com reports.

"Of course, there’s a chance he doesn’t make the team," Maddon said. "There’s no lock in regard to that. The entitlement program doesn’t exist — everything has to be earned."

Baez was just 3 for 26 at the plate with one home run and seven strikeouts entering Thursday.

"He has things he has to learn how to do yet," Maddon said. "He shows signs of brilliance at times. To this point, he’s had a lot of good at-bats and hit some balls hard. Then he’ll show the out of control swing that bothers him a little bit, and I think it bothers the fans more than it bothers me. It’s a young guy trying to figure this all out. [He has] sterling bat speed, incredible bat speed. He just needs plate appearances."

Despite his struggles at the plate, Baez earned his manager's praise for other aspects of his game.

"The thing nobody talks about is this guy is a really good baseball player," Maddon said. "His defense is spectacular, baserunning is outstanding. His acumen on the field is well beyond his years. The thing that’s lagging is the adjustment at the plate. Of course, he needs to get better, of course he needs to make adjustments."
