Javier Baez leaves game due to groin tightness

Javier Baez was forced to leave Monday’s game between the Chicago Cubs and Miami Marlins early due to an injury.

During the seventh inning, Baez was in obvious discomfort while in the field. He was soon visited by a member of the Cubs’ training staff before ultimately being replaced by Tommy La Stella.

The Cubs later announced Baez would not return due to right groin tightness that apparently occurred during a play at second base during the fifth inning.

Baez has been extremely productive so far this season for the Cubs. He came into Monday hitting .285 with nine home runs and was tied for the National League lead with 29 RBI. Baez hit his tenth home run in Monday, a three run shot to center field.
