Cubs manager Joe Maddon told reporters on Wednesday that Javier Baez will have to show a better approach at the plate to earn more playing time.
"[Baez] is at that point now (that) to get those 500 to 600 plate appearances, (he needs to) organize (his) strike zone, accept walks and use the whole field," Maddon said Wednesday. "That would be the next level for him." Baez is still just 25 years old, but his grand total of 64 walks in 1,267 plate appearances speaks to his lack of patience at the plate. He oozes talent, but if he's ever going to reach his ceiling, there has to be a reason for pitchers to throw him more strikes. If he does eventually find that groove, look out. Feb 21 - 7:45 PM
