Cubs Quick Hits: Javy Baez Has Been More Aggressive Than Ever

Javy Baez enters Thursday’s game against the Rockies with a respectable .317 wOBA (95 wRC+) and huge .229 ISO. Yet despite the good production, he’s been swinging at 45.9 percent of the pitches he sees outside the strike zone.

His excessive swing rate is the highest of any season so far in his young career. The only other player with a higher outside-the-zone swing rate is Corey Dickerson (47.1%).
