Cubs may use Javier Baez at designated hitter

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/1/15) The Cubs will play interleague road games in a week. The trip to A.L. parks means that the team needs to sort through candidates to play designated hitter. 

"We have some ideas and thoughts,” manager Joe Maddon said, per ESPN. “We’ll see how it plays."

The Cubs may call up a prospect to take the at bats at DH, and Javier Baez is a candidate.

Baez was the team's 2011 first-round draft pick. He's hitting .306 with five home runs and 21 RBI at Triple-A. 

"Javier is doing better,” Maddon said. “I hear a lot of good things about him." Baez was a spring cut after striking out too much. He has 32 this year. 

Despite hitting .327 with 12 home runs at Double-A, 2014 first-rounder Kyle Schwarber isn't going to get the call. 

"I heard that (outfielder Chris Denorfia) is doing better,” Maddon said. “I’m not sure if (Tommy La Stella) would be ready by that time. But no we haven’t talked about Schwarber yet."

Cubs pushing for consistency from prospect Javier Baez

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/26/15) Cubs vice president of player development Jason McLeod isn't considering a promotion for prospect Javier Baez anytime soon, according to ESPN.com.

Baez, who primarily plays second base, is also not being considered for a move to the outfield as of yet, according to McLeod. Baez is one of Chicago's top prospects and is hitting .322 with 17 RBI in 90 at-bats for Triple-A Iowa this season.

Cubs happy 2B Javier Baez 'calming things down' at plate

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/25/15) It's all good at the moment for Cubs premier second base prospect Javier Baez. He't not trying to hit home runs at Triple-A Iowa, but baseballs are flying over the fence anyway.

The Cubs wanted Baez to stop swinging for the downs, which led to too many strikeouts in his stint with the team a year ago. He slugged two home runs Sunday, giving him five on the season, but his strikeouts are indeed down. He has 24 in 87 at-bats, which is still disturbing, but far off the pace he set last year.

"Both (home run at-bats Sunday), he laid off borderline pitches before getting good pitches to hit," Iowa batting coach Brian Harper said via milb.com. "That's the key for Javy. What he's done the most lately is not overswinging. He's not trying to hit 800-foot home runs any more. He's just trying to hit 350 to 400-foot home runs, that's all. He's working really hard to calming things down."

Baez owns a slash line of .322/.404/.540. He has fanned in 24.2 percent of his plate appearances, down from 30 percent a year ago.

Rival executive: Cubs willing to deal prospects Baez, Vogelbach

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/22/15) The Cubs appear willing to trade prospects Javier Baez and Dan Vogelbach, a rival executive told CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. The executive suggests it is partly because both players were drafted by a previous regime.

However, Heyman writes the reality is there are issues with Baez and Vogelbach. Baez is working on cutting down his strikeouts and getting rid of the perception he "doesn't make contact," according to one rival's assessment. One scout said Vogelbach is a "30 fielder," using scout parlance for well-below average on the 20-80 scale.

Vogelbach was the Cubs' minor-league player of the month for April. The first baseman has a .328/.449/.515/.964 slash line through 39 games for Double-A Tennessee. He has a career .289/.382/.485/.867 slash line. He was a second-round pick in 2011.

Baez was sent to the minors after struggling in spring training. He missed some time due to a personal leave, but the former top-10 prospect has a .284/.369/.405/.774 slash line through 20 games for Triple-A Iowa. He has 22 strikeouts in 20 games.

Cubs' Joe Maddon on Javier Baez: 'He's always on the radar'

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/20/15) Cubs infielder Javier Baez has settled into an offensive groove at Triple-A Iowa. Although he has 10 strikeouts in his last 10 games, he is also batting .351 (13 for 37) with one home run, seven RBI, five runs, four walks and four stolen bases in that span.

One person who has noticed Baez's surge is Cubs manager Joe Maddon.

“Of course, he’s on the radar,” Maddon said, per CSNChicago.com. “He’s always on the radar. I just heard that he’s doing better. Those little updates on the scoreboard during the game -- I read them once in awhile and I noticed that he’s had some really nice games.

“I ask (about him). Apparently, the at-bats have gotten better regarding taking and accepting his walks and striking out less. I just heard everything’s been really good. I don’t know what we feel specifically (about) where he’s at (now). I don’t really dig on that question. But I know that he’s doing well.

“When is he going to get here? I’m not 100 percent sure. But everything’s going well right now.”
