Cubs belt four homers in win over Royals
MESA, Ariz. — Cubs manager Dale Sveum has compared Javier Baez's bat speed to that of nine-time All-Star Gary Sheffield's vicious swing.
Even Sheffield, who finished with 509 career home runs, would be impressed with what the 20-year-old Cub's shortstop prospect has done over the last two days.
Baez has hit four home runs in his last five at-bats on a total of seven pitches, including two off Bruce Chen on Saturday as a Cubs split-squad pounded out an 8-3 win over the Kansas City Royals.
