Chicago Cubs SS Javier Baez will skip the Arizona Fall League so that he can rest for next season. "He's emotionally and physically drained after the season," general manager Jed Hoyer said. "We have no problem with (him missing the AFL)." Baez was the team's Minor League Player of the Year after hitting .282 with 37 home runs and 111 RBIs in 130 games with Single-A Daytona and Double-A Tennessee this year.
