Cubs | Javier Baez to debut at 2B

Chicago Cubs SS Javier Baez will start at second base Monday, March 17, in the split-squad game. He hasn't played the keystone since high school, and Chicago wants to find ways to get him comfortable at positions besides shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Baez is expected to start 2014 at Class AAA Iowa, but with his hot spring hitting, he's making a case to be brought up at least immediately after the Super 2 deadline. He's inching closer to a 300-plus-at-bat season, which makes him a justified late-rounds gamble in mixed leagues.
