2017 FANTASY BASEBALL BRIEF: JOE MADDON HINTS THAT JAVIER BAEZ WILL BE PART-TIME PLAYER

Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon came out and suggested that infielder Javier Baez will "have a tough time" getting consistent playing time, at least early in the season given the presence of Kyle Schwarber returning to everyday duty.  With Addison Russell and Ben Zobrist manning the other middle infield spots, Baez is likely looking at utility/backup duty unless injuries open up more time.  While Baez still strikes out too much, he retains very intriguing power/speed upside to go with eligibility all over the diamond.  At least for now though, Baez' 2017 fantasy baseball value is looking a bit overinflated at the draft table.
