On the season at Iowa, Baez put up a line of .260/.323/.510 with 23 home runs, 16 steals and a .250 ISO. For his minor league career in 319 games Baez has hit .278/.336/.545 with 76 home runs.

Baez will play second base for the Cubs with Arismendy Alcantara most likely taking over full-time in center field.
