Chicago Cubs SS Javier Baez and OF Jorge Soler are expected to be sent to minor league camp within the next week. "They are so raw they just have to play so many more baseball games before they're ready for this kind of big league pitching every day," manager Dale Sveum said. "Soler has been impressive to where he doesn't just go up there swinging. He has a pretty good idea. His poise in the outfield, for not playing a lot of games, it's pretty impressive." Baez and Soler are likely to start out at Class A Daytona and Sveum said it was unlikely that either player would reach the majors this year.

Chicago Cubs SS Starlin Castro (hamstring) is expected to miss some time this spring after straining his left hamstring Wednesday, Feb. 27. INFs Javier Baez, Edwin Maysonet, Brent Lillibridge and Alberto Gonzalez figure to see time at shortstop in Castro's absence.
Fantasy Tip: There is still plenty of time left in spring training, so Chicago has no reason to rush Castro back. If for some reason this injury becomes a lingering issue, Lillibridge is the likeliest candidate to start the year as the starting shortstop.
