Javier Baez is getting called up by the Cubs, and their rebuild is in full gear

Highly touted Chicago Cubs prospect Javier Baez is coming to The Show, and will be with the Cubs in Tuesday for their series in Colorado with the Rockies.

The 21-year old Baez is a consensus top ten prospect in baseball, and has hit .260/.323/.510 with 23 homers for AAA Iowa this season. Last year, Baez smashed 37 long balls for high-A Daytona and AA Tennessee.

Needless to say, baseball fans are excited. And quite frankly, we should be – this is going to be fun. Baez starting his major league career in Coors Field? Hold me.
