Player Notes
Javier Baez went 1-for-3 with a stolen base and a run scored against the Pirates on Sunday.

Advice: Baez also walked in the game. He generated a run with his legs in the third inning, beating out an infield single before stealing second. The throw allowed him to go to third, and Baez scored on a sacrifice fly. He's noted for his prodigious power, but Baez now has four steals in four attempts.

Javier Baez launched a solo homer Friday against the Pirates.

Advice: It was his eighth home run and his first since August 23. We know Baez has the power potential, but the 21-year-old is hitting just .173 through 37 games in the majors and has struck out 67 times in 150 at-bats. If there's any positive to take away, he has walked six times this month after drawing just four free during his first month in the big leagues. However, he still has plenty of work to do.

Javier Baez finished 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, and a stolen base, but the Cubs were handed a loss by the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

Advice: Baez had been slumping, posting a .300 OPS in 10 games dating back to August 30. He scored both of the Cubs' runs on the evening: on a sacrifice fly in the first inning and on Welington Castillo's single in the fifth. The 21-year-old rookie has seven home runs, 15 RBI, three stolen bases, and a .175/.229/.364 slash line in his first 153 plate appearances in the major leagues.

Fri, Sep 12 Rotoworld
Javier Baez went hitless in a third straight game Monday and is in a 2-for-33 slump.

Advice: At least he only struck out once tonight. That Baez is facing a learning curve is hardly a surprise. He's a massive talent, but he's always chased too many pitchers and now he's facing pitchers more capable of throwing tempting breaking balls that dive out of the zone. His average is down to .164 now, and he's fanned 62 times in 140 at-bats.
