7/16 Cubs hold onto Baker
FOX Sports reported Saturday the Cubs are “open for business” but infielder Jeff Baker is not available. The Cubs have no intention of parting with Baker, 30, who was batting .304 this season. His versatility and the fact that he’s still under team control as an arbitration eligible player next season are key reasons the Cubs want to hold onto him. According to FOX Sports, the Red Sox and Indians showed interest Baker.
