CINCINNATI — Chicago Cubs shortstop Javier Baez is a natural left-hander who does everything left-handed outside of swinging a bat and throwing a baseball. However, Baez is capable of batting left-handed, just not at a big-league level, and he proved as much during a 12-5 Cubs victory on Thursday.
When Cincinnati Reds position player Kyle Farmer pitched the ninth inning at Great American Ball Park, Baez opted to give batting left-handed a shot. Although the newfangled switch hitter flied out off Farmer, who pitched very slowly, Baez showcased yet another one of his many talents.
Can't stop thinking about Javy batting lefty and trying to hit a ball to the moon. pic.twitter.com/cutHnASZia— Chicago Cubs (@Cubs) August 9, 2019
