With Lindor, Baez offers the Mets the promise of one of the most electric middle infields in recent Major League memory. A two-time National League All-Star and former NL MVP Award runner-up, Baez was hitting .248 with 22 homers in 91 games for the Cubs. He is also a former Gold Glover at shortstop, where he will play until Lindor recovers from a right oblique strain — an injury that should keep him sidelined until at least mid-August. Once Lindor returns, Baez can shift to second base, where he has played regularly in the past, but not since 2018.
