Player Notes
Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Saturday that "it's going to be tough to get (Javier Baez) in there often enough at the beginning of the game."

Advice: "In a perfect world, everyone is well," Maddon said. "It's going to be tough to get him in there often enough at the beginning of the game. You probably see him there on most games we finish that we're winning. He'll be fine. The development will continue. He gets it. He's going to get plenty of at-bats before the season's over." As Maddon alluded to, Baez doesn't have a regular spot in the lineup as long as the Cubs stick with a Jon Jay/Albert Almora platoon in center field and keep Jason Heyward in right. Baez's versatility will allow him to fill in often at multiple positions, and he'll sub in at second base often late in games for defensive purposes, pushing Ben Zobrist to left field and Kyle Schwarber to the bench. Still, fantasy owners need to be prepared for the fact that he's not going to receive everyday at-bats.

Javier Baez went 2-for-3 with a double in Saturday's split-squad loss to the Giants.

Advice: First double of the spring for Baez. The 24-year-old is looking to build on a 2016 season in which he hit .273/.314/.423 with 14 homers, 59 RBI and 12 steals over the course of 421 at-bats.
