* BAEZ Update:
Javier Baez said he was afraid he’d broken his ankle when he injured it during batting practice last Friday. He is currently on Iowa’s seven-day disabled list. It’s been tough for him to sit on the side.
“I don’t like being in the dugout and not playing and seeing what I can do,” Baez told the Des Moines Register.
