Javier Baez played the hero role Tuesday night, smacking a game-winning solo home run in the 12th inning to give the Cubs a 3-2 edge over the Rockies.
Baez homered in his first career game on Tuesday night, and it could not have come at a better time. After slashing .260/.323/.510 with 23 home runs and 80 RBI at the Triple-A level, the Cubs finally promoted one of their top prospects in Baez on Monday, and quickly made his presence felt. Although there are going to be bumps in the road, like with all young hitters, Baez is certainly worth an add in deep formats based on his power potential if nothing else. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
