Baez will start season in minors
MESA, Ariz. – Javier Baez’s first taste of the big league experience comes with low expectations.
Baez, the Cubs’ 2011 first-round draft pick, is participating in major league camp this year joining the rest of the position players when they officially report Saturday. But making the big league club out of camp already has been ruled out for Baez.
For now, Baez will stay at shortstop and will play there throughout spring. Baez could see limited time at third base or second but only if the Cubs, because of numbers, need someone at the position. President of baseball operations Theo Epstein insisted Starlin Castro is their long-term shortstop, which means a permanent position change awaits Baez in the future.
