Cubs' Javy Báez, Batting Lefty, Hits BP Home Run Out of Wrigley

Báez parks left-handed home run onto Sheffield during BP originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

Switch-hitting is hard. Heck, hitting in the big leagues is difficult in any case. 

But if Cubs shortstop Javy Báez wanted to start hitting from both sides of the plate, would anyone bet against his ability to do so?

Báez turned around to the left side pregame on Tuesday and not only went deep, but put a ball onto Sheffield Ave. in the process. 


This isn't the first time we've seen El Mago hit from the left side. He smoked a double off White Sox infielder Yolmer Sánchez during a blowout victory last September.

Báez throws and bats right-handed but is a natural lefty. Tuesday's home run and last season's double are evidence he's more than capable from the left side. 

And both beg the question: What can't Javy Báez do?
