    What happens when Javier Baez comes up? Does Starlin Castro get traded? -- Hank, Rock Island There are many considerations. Assuming Castro rebounds and Baez earns a major league promotion, I believe Baez would move to second or third base. If Darwin...
  • Want to see Baez play for Cubs? Just wait ... and wait
