Fun With Javy Baez’s Big Night

Chicago Cubs

Javy Baez wasn’t exactly El Mago on the basepaths last night, but that’s OK. He’s great more often than he struggles there, so I am just going to slide right past his two times out on the bases and instead focus on his great night at the plate and in the field (also, it took a perfect series of plays to get him at third on that first one, so whatever).

At the plate, Baez doubled twice, homered, took a walk, and generally led the offensive charge. In the field, he made a couple great plays, too.

Highlight package:

Baez has unquestionably been in a funk lately, but his big night helped push his season line back up to .285/.319/.543 with a 116 wRC+. That’s the third best mark in the NL, behind only Trevor Story (119) and Trea Turner (119).

Oh, also, how about this:
