Cubs in no hurry with shortstop Baez
MESA, Ariz. – Getting his first taste of the big leagues, although it’s only spring training, has already helped Cubs prospect Javier Baez.
The opportunity to work and compete alongside Alfonso Soriano and Starlin Castro is paying off for the 20-year-old shortstop, who credits his teammates for pointing out and correcting any mistakes he’s made during spring training. But one piece of advice has stood out among the rest.
“Try not to show off because everyone here knows what you can do and what you do,” Baez said. “So I’m just doing my own thing.”
