Weekend Catch-Up: Baez Break, IFA Rumors, Cubs Wins, Gearing Up for the Draft, More

Chicago Cubs News

bn baseball featureIt was a very busy weekend around here, even with The Taylor Family on the road. If you took off for a vacation and didn’t nerd it up like I did, you’re going to want to peruse the headlines.


Friday, June 5

Saturday, June 6

Sunday, June 7

  • The day started nicely, with a look at a massive homer by Javier Baez, and talk of how close he might be to returning to the bigs. Sigh.


  • Luke checked in on the minor league affiliates.
  • I wondered how Hector Rondon’s role might change in the wake of him being pulled from the 9th the day before.
  • Luke looked at the latest mock draft from Baseball America.
  • Chris Denorfia returned for the second time from a hamstring injury. Hopefully he’s back for good this time, because the bench could use him.


  • The Cubs beat the Nationals again, locking up a 3-1 series win. Nicely done.
  • Ugh. Javy Baez broke a finger. No good way to share that news.
  • I closed out the weekend with a handful of random draft rumor bits, and an open thread. BECAUSE THE DRAFT STARTS TODAY!
