Javier Baez, Cubs talking long-term extension

Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times writes that the Cubs have begun extension talks with infielder Javier Baez.

Fantasy Impact

The 26-year-old Baez has been the Cubs' best player the past two seasons. In 2019 he hit .281 with 29 homers, 11 steals, and an .847 OPS. He's currently under team control for two more years.

Javier Baez (thumb) available as a pinch-runner

Cubs manager Joe Maddon says Javier Baez (thumb) remains available off the bench as a pinch-runner.

Fantasy Impact

Baez pinch-ran and scored a run on Thursday, but he still isn't able to play regularly. He could potentially play in the post-season but won't have any fantasy value for the rest of September.

Fantasy Impact

Baez suffered the injury on a slide Sunday. He will see a specialist on Monday, at which point a timeline will be determined. It’s unclear if he will return before the regular season ends. Addison Russell will take over as the primary shortstop.
