Javier Baez injures his right heel as the Cubs hold off the Nationals 6-5 - Chicago Tribune

Manager Joe Maddon and Baez, who has started in all 44 of the Cubs’ games at shortstop, said he could return as soon as Monday night’s game against the Phillies at Wrigley Field.

“As of right now, I’d imagine that he can,” Maddon said. “But I want to double check.”

Said Baez: “I’m good.”

“It was right before I caught it,” Baez said. “I didn’t twist it. I just went too hard to the ground. My heel kind of got jammed a little bit. All good. It depends on how it goes (Sunday night), and I want to play (Monday). Joe is going to decide whether I play or give me a day. But I hope I don’t need it. I’ll be playing (Monday), hopefully.”

Baez, who had played 395 2/3 consecutive innings at shortstop to start the season, said the heel began to throb after he made a sweeping tag on Gerardo Parra at second base in the fifth.

Cubs’ Baez has new magic tricks ready for this season

MESA, Ariz. (AP) — It does not take Javier Baez long to show off his magic tricks, even in a spring training game.

The Chicago Cubs star singled in the first inning on Sunday against the Colorado Rockies and stole second, escaping a tag by shortstop Garrett Hampson with a deft swim move.

“I wasn’t planning on doing it — I just reacted to it,” Baez said. “I got a good jump but I took forever to be full speed and the ball beat me. I saw it and just reacted to it. That’s my first attempt to steal a bag in spring training. I just did it. We’ll see how it goes.”

Last year, as we all remember, Javier Baez successfully caused the Cubs’ offense to disappear.
