The legend of Javier Baez continues to grow as the Cubs' top prospect hit another long home run Wednesday night in a spring training game against the Mariners.

Check out a Vine of the blast from "FredricBarstoolSports" (h/t Cubs Den):

Check out's video of the homer, too.

The Cubs sent the other three members of the "Core Four" down to minor-league camp Wednesday, but Baez remains with the big-league club, putting on a show down in Arizona. He won't break camp with the team, but he's certainly giving the fan base hope for the future. Baez Watch has officially started.

Meanwhile, Mike Olt continues to make a case for the starting third base gig with two more homers Wednesday (he has three on the spring). The first bomb can be seen at and check out video of the second here: 

Olt, 25, battled vision issues all last season, hitting just .201 with 15 homers in the minor leagues last season. But he appears to have corrected the issue now and could become a nice core piece for the Cubs.
