Javier Baez (CHC No. 1): MLB.com's No. 16 overall prospect enjoyed his two-homer performance in Friday's exhibition game against Japan so much, he repeated the feat in Cactus League play. The 20-year-old shortstop hit a solo blast in the first inning and followed it up with another in the fifth. He finished the day 2-for-3 to push his spring average to .324 to go with four homers -- not including Friday's pair -- and eight RBIs in 14 games.
