#29 Javier Baez, SS Chicago Cubs
It has already been decided that Javier Baez will not break camp as part of the major league roster. But Baez has made some unforgettable impressions so far in camp.
At only 20 years old, Baez looks like a veteran on the field with sharp fielding skills, fantastic range, and great power. A premium position player with above average power is a hot commodity in the bigs these days, so I have to imagine its only a matter of time before we see him in Chicago.
Because he is blocked at his natural position by the Cubs’ All-Star SS Starlin Castro, Baez will probably be asked to switch positions. This could be why Baez will start the season in the minors, to get more comfortable at 2B/3B.
Last year Baez batted .294 in 80 between the Florida State League and Midwest League. he also produced 16 HR and 46 RBI with an 69:14 K:BB ratio.
