The Chicago Cubs hope Javier Baez will snap out of his slump Wednesday night when they face the Pittsburgh Pirates in the finale of their three-game series at PNC Park.

Cubs 1B/2B Javier Baez went 2-for-4 with a solo homer, a double and a HBP on Friday in Cincinnati.
Spin: Baez needed this performance, as he had just one multi-hit effort and no homers in his first 13 games this season. The utility man entered this game having swung at 50 percent of the pitches he saw outside of the strike zone, leading to a 21.4 percent swinging-strike rate. While he has plenty of potential, Baez will need to show more discipline to take his game to the next level in 2017.
