Player Notes
Cubs recalled INF Javier Baez from Triple-A Iowa.

Advice: Baez has batted .324/.385/.527 with 13 home runs, 61 RBI, and 17 steals over 70 games in Triple-A this season and has been especially hot of late. Strikeouts were a major issue for him during his time with the Cubs last year, but it looks like he could get the opportunity to take over the second base job. He's worth a try in most mixed fantasy leagues.

Cubs SS prospect Javier Baez extended his hitting streak to 16 games Sunday with four knocks for Triple-A Iowa.

Advice: The 22-year-old began the streak at .282 but now his average is all the way up to .324. Baez sports a tidy .391 on base percentage in 328 plate appearances this year with 18 steals on 21 attempts. The former first-round pick should join the Cubs when rosters expand on Tuesday.

According to Patrick Mooney of CSNChicago.com, infield prospect Javier Baez is expected to be in the Cubs' first wave of September callups.

Advice: And it seems very possible that he could position himself for regular starts at second base. Starlin Castro and Tommy La Stella have been playing there with Addison Russell recently taking over at shortstop. Baez, 22, is batting .316/.380/.530 with 13 home runs, 60 RBI, and 17 stolen bases in 67 games this season at the Triple-A level. He'll be worth trying out in most mixed fantasy leagues.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Monday that there are no immediate plans to promote Javier Baez.

Advice: Jorge Soler's oblique injury has opened some playing time at second base because Chris Coghlan will have to move back to the outfield, but Baez isn't being considered as an option yet. That could change when rosters expand on September 1. Baez, 22, is batting .304/.372/.518 with 12 home runs, 55 RBI, and 15 stolen bases in 62 games this season at the Triple-A level.
