Update September 5: Former Cubs Javier Baez, Chris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo, and Kyle Schwarber

Catch up with old friends.

Javier Baez

We don’t hear much about Javy, and that’s probably because his team isn’t very good. Báez hit .294/.351/.382 (10-for-34) in nine games since last updated here, and you’ll notice his relatively low SLG. This is because only one of those 10 hits was for extra bases (a home run). The Tigers were 3-6 in the nine games. Here is the house [VIDEO].

Here’s a recent Tigers Javy Scholarship:

About two-thirds of fans got a lunch box in Detroit that day. Attendance at Comerica Park on September 3 was 15,259.

Chris Bryant

He still has plantar fasciitis and hasn’t played since July 31st. update, like:

Rocky Beat writer Danielle Allentock says:

She’s right. And Rockies fans aren’t happy about this whole situation:

Anthony Rizzo

Rizzo is 3-for-13 with two home runs since last updated here, but hasn’t played since Aug. 31 with back problems. The article says:

Rizzo remained in California after the Yankees lost a series to the Los Angeles Angels. He was preparing to receive an injection, according to director Aaron Boone.

“There’s a possibility he’ll get an injection and maybe miss this Tampa series,” Boone said.

Which is what actually happened. Which led to some humor from our friends at SB Nation in Pinstripe Alley:

Rizzo has played in 117 of the Yankees’ 131 games this year, starting in 111 games.

Kyle Schwarber

Schwarber is the only one of those four players who hasn’t missed any time due to injury this year. He has played in 128 of the 134 games the Phillies have played to date.

Since our last update here, Schwarber has hit .237/.293/.421 (9-for-38) with two doubles, a triple (!) and a home run, along with 14 hits. His OPS for the season entering action on Monday is .800 double.

Here’s home, hit Aug. 29 vs. the Diamondbacks [VIDEO].

That ball has come a long way:

If you’re interested, you can watch Schwarber play at Wrigley Field later this month. The Phillies will be in town for a three-game series September 27-28-29.

The Rockies are also at Wrigley this month, September 16-17-18, but it seems doubtful that Bryant will play in that series.


Will Kris Bryant play for the Rockies in the series at Wrigley Field September 16-17-18?
