Javier Baez singles, steals, and scores in win Wednesday

Javier Baez went 1-for-3 with a single, a steal, and a run scored in the Cubs' 7-3 win over the White Sox on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

This was just Baez's third steal of the year, making him far off pace to match last season's total of 21. He's still an elite player even without the steals, but it would be nice to see him pick up the pace as we move towards the second half.

Javier Baez crushes two-run bomb Wednesday

Javier Baez went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in the Cubs'10-1 win over the Rockies' on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Baez now has 17 home runs and 46 RBI on the year. His two steals are a little disappointing, but he's otherwise performed at the same level he did last year. His .378 BABIP and 29.8% HR/FB rate will likely come back to Earth at some point, but even factoring in regression Baez is one of the top second basemen in the league.

Javier Baez clobbers homer number 16 Friday

Javier Baez went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in the Cubs' 3-1 win over the Cardinals on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Baez is on a power binge right now, with three home runs over his last five games. The underlying metrics don't support his performance, as Baez has a .396 BABIP despite a 30.9% K rate and 50% groundball rate. He also has a 30.8% HR/FB rate, which is boosting his power numbers higher than what we'd typically expect. Baez is going to be a top middle infield option all season, but now might be the time to try and cash-in on his first two months for a first-round caliber player. Take nothing less in a trade.

Javier Baez homers for second straight day Tuesday

Javier Baez went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run in the Cubs' 6-3 win over the Rockies on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Baez has homered in two consecutive games and now has a .940 OPS and 15 homers on the year. He is an elite middle infielder and must-start in all formats.

Javier Baez homers, drives in three Monday

Javier Baez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a double, and three RBI in the Cubs' 8-1 win over the Angels on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Baez has been dealing with a nagging heel injury over the last few weeks, but proved his health with a big performance today. He is one of the game's elite middle infielder and is a top five option at both second and shortstop.
