Less than 24 hours after Starlin Castro said he'd like to see Javier Baez up in the big leagues, the Chicago Cubs' shortstop got his wish.
Rumors of Baez's call-up began Monday afternoon when the 21-year-old's brother sent out this tweet:
Congrats to my brother @javy23baez on getting called up! Welcome to the show baby!!— Gadi Baez (@OMGADI) August 4, 2014
Cubs insider Patrick Mooney went on to confirm the report:
Source confirms Javier Baez will make his big-league debut with the Cubs tomorrow night at Coors Field.— Patrick Mooney (@CSNMooney) August 4, 2014
Tuesday's game against the Rockies will be aired on CSN+. Coverage will begin at 7 with Cubs Pregame Live.
