The Mets have a deal in place pending medicals to acquire Javier Baez from the Cubs, per source.— Mark Feinsand (@Feinsand) July 30, 2021
The Chicago Cubs have reportedly made another huge move before the MLB trade deadline, sending shortstop Javier Báez to the New York Mets.
The deal was finalized just before 2 p.m., an hour before the deadline, according to MLB Insider Mark Feinsand:
Báez, a two-time All-Star with the Cubs and a member of the 2016 World Series championship-winning squad, has a .248 batting average with 22 home runs and 65 RBI’s in 361 plate appearances this season.
The Mets will team him up with fellow Puerto Rican All-Star Francisco Lindor, giving themselves a potent mix of talent up the middle of the diamond.
