Rarely does a prospect’s performance in an individual game merit its own post – on the fly and in the middle of a Chicago Cubs game – but this is nuts.
Javier Baez just hit four homers tonight for the Daytona Cubs.
One game does not define a player’s abilities, and no one can credibly say that Baez doesn’t still have things to work on. He’s a long way from being big-league ready, and tonight shouldn’t let you start wondering otherwise.
But a four-homer game is a four-homer game. It’s awesome, it’s rare, and it’s worth noting.
Nicely done, Javy. You are very good at baseball.
