Baez joins Soler on DL

ST. LOUIS -- Chicago Cubs top prospect Javier Baez is on the seven-day Triple-A minor league disabled list after turning his ankle taking ground balls on Friday, according to the team.

Baez is hitting .214 with two home runs and three RBIs in eight games this season. He joins fellow prospect Jorge Soler, who is on the DL in Double-A after re-injuring a hamstring running out a double in his first at-bat of the season.

Baez is the seventh-ranked prospect in baseball, according to ESPN.com. Soler is 26th.
