WATCH: With One Mighty Swing, Javy Baez Goes 30/100

Chicago Cubs

Reaching them both on the same swing, in early September, on a 420 foot blast? Well that’s magic:

Javy Baez, given all that he does in the field and on the bases, was already going to get some MVP chatter if he kept up his offensive pace. But adding a couple “milestone” numbers to the back of his baseball card can only help.
