Cubs | Javier Baez sent to minors

The Chicago Cubs have reassigned SS Javier Baez to minor league camp. He will begin the season at Triple-A Iowa.

Fantasy Tip: The Cubs are sticking to their plan of giving Baez more seasoning in the minors, despite his impressive showing in the Cactus League (.310 with five home runs). Manager Rick Renteria would like to see him become more patient at the plate, after he went the entire spring without taking a walk, and he is expected to get the bulk of his playing time at Iowa at shortstop, despite the presence at the big-league level of Starlin Castro. He is projected to reach the majors later this season and should be stashed away on your bench.
