Javier Baez Heading to Peoria!

Javier Baez is being optioned from extended Spring training to the Peoria Chiefs.  This is a great move for the Cubs as it shows that they are rewarding performance and are not afraid to push Baez through the system (2011 1st round draft pick).  Baez was outstanding in extended spring training as we have documented a few times.  Baez will make his Peoria debut this weekend, and it will be a treat for Peoria fans to watch this kid play everyday.  Congrats Javy!
