Javier Baez to bat second, play second in his major league debut tonight
The Cubs called up hot-hitting, top-rated prospect Javier Baez yesterday and today he’s in the lineup. He bats second and plays second base. He’ll wear number 9. Not a lot of glorious history with the Cubs and that number, but go check it out and pick your favorite.
Baez -- and the rest of the Cubs -- will face Brett Anderson and the Rockies in Colorado.
