|Baez was plunked by Jack Flaherty in the third inning of Sunday night’s 5-0 loss at St. Louis. But he could return as soon as Tuesday’s day-night doubleheader against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
He was not in the starting lineup before Monday’s series opener against Los Angeles was postponed by a mixture of poor weather and a limited power outage at Wrigley Field. He said his elbow is still pretty swollen http://www.seahawkscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-marquise-blair-jersey , but he felt good and no X-rays were needed.
”I was scared for a moment but after I started feeling everything, I knew everything was good,” he said.
Baez leads the Cubs with 14 homers and is tied for the team lead with 46 RBIs.
”That’s a tough one right there,” manager Joe Maddon said. ”I’ve actually gone through that particular instance, and it stings and you want to throw up and it’s hot, but you actually come out of it.
”He’s a tough kid. I’m not totally surprised that he’s fine. It’s just an awkward spot when it happens.”
Baez said Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina texted him Sunday night to see if he was all right.
Also Monday, the Cubs placed reliever Brian Duensing on the bereavement list and recalled left-hander Rob Zastryzny from Triple-A Iowa. Duensing’s grandfather died on Saturday.
”He is in a better place but we miss him dearly already,” Duensing posted on his Twitter account.
FORT LAUDERDALE D.K. Metcalf Jersey , Fla. (AP) — Prosecutors can’t release undercover video of New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and others allegedly receiving sex acts at a Florida massage parlor until a Florida judge rules later this month.Circuit Judge Joseph Marx on Wednesday barred the release of any video from the Orchids of Asia Day Spa before an April 29 hearing where he will hear from all parties, the Palm Beach Post reported.Palm Beach County prosecutors had filed a notice in a related case saying they believe the videos are public records under Florida law and plan to release pixilated versions — a move Kraft’s attorneys quickly moved to block, accusing prosecutors of apparent “gross prosecutorial misconduct.”Kraft was charged in February with two misdemeanor counts of soliciting prostitution for allegedly paying for sex at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, Florida. He has pleaded not guilty. Twenty-four other alleged Orchids of Asia customers were similarly charged.Palm Beach State Attorney David Aronberg wrote to the court in the related case that there is no legal basis to block the videos’ release. The Associated Press and numerous other media outlets have requested the videos.“Absent a Court order, the State will be releasing the requested public records” after they are pixilated, Aronberg wrote. His spokesman, Mike Edmondson, said the release is not imminent as the office is processing numerous public records requests from the case.Defense attorney Jack Goldberger quickly sent a letter to the judge overseeing Kraft’s case http://www.seahawkscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-cody-barton-jersey , writing that prosecutors are trying to “evade judicial review and end run” around a promise he says they made to await a court ruling on whether the videos are a public record.“The State’s bad faith attempt to circumvent judicial review by simply releasing the Videos” before the judge rules “is an affront to justice and grossly unethical,” Goldberger wrote.David S. Weinstein, a defense attorney and former prosecutor who is not involved in the case, said “there is still no guarantee that the tapes will be released.” Prosecutors “are simply stating that they are complying with their duties under the public records laws and they won’t be withholding the tapes,” he said. Even if the trial judge orders the videos’ release, Kraft’s attorneys could appeal, he said.Kraft, 77 Gary Jennings Jr. Jersey , is accused of paying for sex acts at the spa twice in January. While fighting the charges, he recently issued an apology saying he had disappointed his family, friends, co-workers, fans “and many others who rightfully hold me to a higher standard.”Kraft said he has “extraordinary respect for women,” adding that his morals were shaped by his late wife, who died in 2011.According to police records, Kraft http://www.seahawkscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-phil-haynes-jersey , who is worth $6 billion, was chauffeured to the Orchids of Asia spa on the evening of Jan. 19, where officers secretly recorded him engaging in a sex act and then handing over an undetermined amount of cash.Investigators said Kraft returned 17 hours later and was again videotaped engaging in sex acts before paying with a $100 bill and another bill, police said.Hours later, he was in Kansas City for the AFC Championship game, where his Patriots defeated the Chiefs. His team then won the Super Bowl in Atlanta, the Patriots’ sixth NFL championship under his ownership.Goldberger has previously accused Jupiter police of having “deliberately misrepresented” facts used to get a judge to approve the warrant allowing the cameras’ secret installation. Officers used an undisclosed ruse to gain access to the spa days before Kraft’s visits.Jupiter was part of a multicounty investigation of massage parlor prostitution and possible human trafficking that resulted with the arrests of about 300 men and the closure of 10 spas. The spa owners have been charged with felonies. Prosecutors have conceded they found no evidence of human trafficking at the Jupiter spa.Goldberger also said officers did not exhaust less-invasive means of investigating the spa, and Florida law says audio surveillance such as wiretaps should only be used for serious felonies such as murder or kidnapping and does not list prostitution.Prosecutors have offered to drop the charges if Kraft enters a diversion program for first-time offenders Ugo Amadi Jersey , as some others charged have. That would include an admission he would be found guilty if the case went to trial, a $5,000 fine, 100 hours of community service and attendance in a class on the dangers of prostitution and its connection to human trafficking. He would also have to make a court appearance and be tested for sexually transmitted diseases.Prosecutors have said the fine and community service are required by law and are not negotiable.
