(CBS) It’s never really a surprise when Cubs infielder Javier Baez does something amazing.
Baez dazzled again during the third inning of the Cubs-Nationals game Monday when he took away a hard liner off the bat of Bryce Harper, diving to his right to rob him of a base hit. The ball was hit at 110.1 mph and would be a hit 68 percent of the time, according to BaseballSavant.com.

Baez then came through with another tremendous play, chasing down a foul ball with hustle and a sliding catch.
