Javier Baez is batting second in his Cubs debut on Tuesday.
It's a great place for Baez to hit, especially if he can maintain some solid plate discipline. He'll see okay RBI opportunities with Arismendy Alcantara batting leadoff, but he'll also see some nice, fat pitches to hit with Anthony Rizzo behind him. Not to mention the runs scored. It should be a fun debut to watch and if you own him, get him active. ANALYST: Howard Bender
Colin Kaepernick has worked with Kurt Warner on his throwing mechanics this offseason.
Specifically, the story notes that Kaepernick is working on "engaging his lower half" to allow for better touch. It's hard to believe Kurt Warner would know more about throwing mechanics than Jim Harbaugh or any other quarterback coach Kap has ever worked with. This appears to be more fluff than anything else, though is reports from camp suggest there's been a real change to approach or delivery of throwing a football, it could be something worth remembering on draft day.
