Javier Baez (back) returns to Wednesday's lineup

Javier Baez (back) has returned to Wednesday's lineup against the Indians.

Fantasy Impact

Baez was scheduled to return on Tuesday but wound up being scratched prior to the game. The 28-year-old has eight homers and six stolen bases on the young season.

Javier Baez scratched with back tightness

Javier Baez was scratched from Tuesday's lineup against the Indians with back tightness.

Fantasy Impact

Baez has already missed a few games with back tightness, so it's discouraging to see him in the lineup and then scratched. For what it's worth, David Ross said he doesn't anticipate an IL move, but if Baez has to miss tomorrow's game, fantasy managers should expect the Cubs to play it safe and sideline him for the rest of the week with an IL stint.

Javier Baez exits Saturday's game with back tightness

Javier Baez was removed from Saturday's contest versus the Pirates due to back tightness.

Fantasy Impact

Javy Baez is day to day with this new injury. Manager David Ross expressed that Baez should be okay, but as of right now, it is unclear if he will play tomorrow. This seems to be a very minor injury, but we will continue to wait for more updates from the Cubs.
