Player Notes
Javier Baez is 0-for-9 with six strikeouts so far in the Puerto Rican Winter League playoffs.

Advice: And he struck out 21 times in 43 at-bats during the regular season for Santurce. Baez has rare bat speed, but his whiff rate was eye-popping last season in the majors and the trend has continued in winter ball. He's a difficult player to project for the 2015 fantasy season.

Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer said Saturday that Javier Baez "has to earn his playing time."

Advice: "He has to earn his playing time, I don’t think there’s any question," Hoyer said. "He’s got a new manager and some new coaches to impress." Baez slugged nine homers over 229 plate appearances in the majors last season, but he also hit just .169/.227/.324 overall and struck out a whopping 95 times. The upside is undeniable, but the 22-year-old has some adjustments to make and has worked this winter with new hitting coach John Mallee on tweaking his swing. Baez is the odds-on favorite to start at second base on Opening Day, but his name isn't etched into stone. Tommy La Stella represents an alternative at the position.
