Javy Baez is one of the most electrifying players in baseball. El Mago, or the magician, does things on a baseball field most people could only dream of. The former ninth overall pick in 2011 has grown into a superstar. Javy can pick it at short as good as anyone in the Bigs. Pair that with a cannon arm and El Mago has become an elite shortstop. His defense doesn’t overshadow his bat, however. Baez does not get cheated at the plate. He takes huge hacks that generate massive power. He has honed his approach at the plate and has become more selective leading to explosive results. Baez was vital in the Cubs postseason run. His 2016 NLCS MVP performance propelled them to the World Series and eventually ended the 107-year drought. Baez is one of the most fun players to watch in recent memory.
Javy is a WPW favorite as his style of play matches his gear-flamboyant and unique. Nike has Baez locked down and they treat him well. Javy uses many different models of PE Nike spikes, always in a flashy red, white, and blue color combo. Baez uses various batting gloves as well-all Nike products. Baez most commonly swings a Marucci GJ5 maple bat paired with an Evoshield elbow guard. He also uses a Dove Tail 356 birch bat and an SSK JB9 birch bat. Javy Baez’s glove is always a sight to see. Baez has chosen the up and coming brand SSK. He has switched through multiple gloves throughout his career. He has used blonde, black, blue, and red gloves with one-piece and I-webs that have even been paired with mesh.
