'El Mago' hasn't been doing any defensive tricks lately.
Chicago Cubs second baseman Javy Baez hasn't played in a baseball game since last Thursday with a hamstring injury. The problem with the hamstring has been attributed to dehydration so Baez is starting to drink more water.
"They took all the sodas from my fridge," Baez said via MLB.com. "I have no other choice now."
Baez thinks that he will be ready to play this week.
"I'm trying to get going," he said. "We'll see. We're going day by day. Hopefully, I can take some [at-bats on Thursday], and Friday or Saturday, I can play."
Maddon recently that the Baez's MRI results were OK.
"It's very minimum," he said. "This is a precautionary tale right now."
"[I told him] 'Take your time, be careful, but if you feel good enough, I'd like to see you out there moving because you're really clicking right now and you don't want him to lose that feel,'" he said.
In 2017, Baez hit .273 with 23 homers, 75 RBIs, and had a .317 on-base percentage. For his short MLB career, he is hitting .255 with 47 dingers and 158 RBIs.
He was drafted by the Cubs in the first round (9th overall) of the 2011 MLB draft.
