10/9 Baez has good start

Cubs prospect Javier Baez is the second youngest player in the Arizona Fall League, and he showed he’s ready Tuesday night, hitting a solo home run to straight away center in the second inning of the Mesa Solar Sox’s game against the Salt River Rafters. It was an impressive shot into the upper tier of the batter’s eye. Baez, 19, hit 16 home runs this past season at Class A Peoria and Class A Daytona combined. His homer Tuesday was the first in the AFL, which kicked off its 20th season. Baez showed he’s human in his second at-bat in the fourth when he struck out on three pitches. He then hit a tie-breaking two-run double with one out in the sixth.
