CHICAGO — Chicago Cubs shortstop Javier Baez showed off his cannon on Friday. Throwing out a runner from shallow left field, "El Mago" wowed with an impressive defensive highlight.
Helping Alec Mills pitch a scoreless third at Wrigley Field, Baez backhanded a grounder hit by Manny Pina of the Milwaukee Brewers and fired a laser across the diamond to first baseman Anthony Rizzo for the flashy putout.
