Chicago Cubs second baseman Javy Baez has been resting a sore hamstring and had not been in the lineup for nine days until Saturday's game against the Cleveland Indians at Sloan Park.
The problem with the hamstring has been attributed to dehydration so Baez has cut back on the sugary drinks.
"I feel great," he said to reporters after the game. "I saw the ball good off the bat playing defense. Getting out of the box was good today. I’ve been running the bases early in the mornings, and everything has been good. I feel great now. No more sugary drinks and a lot of water."
Baez thinks he is ready for the beginning of the regular season.
"I’m back to 100 percent."
During the spring, he is batting .316 going 6-for-19 with two runs, 4 RBIs, and a stolen base.
