Chicago Cubs fans absolutely cannot wait to see this during the regular season. After an MVP-caliber campaign in 2018, Javier Baez is back to crushing bombs, sending a three-run shot out of the park during the team's Spring Training game on Friday.
His home run put the Cubs up 4-0 in the bottom of the third inning.
Chicago is 15-11 in Spring Training games so far, with Baez playing 15 of those 26 contests. That was his first home run this spring after 39 at-bats in his previous 15 games.
Javy Baez's first homer of the spring is a 3-run shot to center here in the 3rd inning. Off Texas righty Connor Sadzeck.— Jordan Bastian (@MLBastian) March 22, 2019
Coming into this game, Baez was batting .282 with 11 runs scored, so it's comforting to see some of that power coming around with just a week until Opening Day.
