Thoughts on playing time ? Will he be playing every day or will this be another Mookie Betts quandary ?

Every day. There's nobody blocking his path and Theo would've have called him up to play him like the Red Sox are screwing with Betts.

Should get full playing time. I'm no Cubs fan, but I imagine Baez will slot in at 2B with Alcantara moving to CF.
Adam Brown (Fearless)=Hero. May you never be forgotten.

This. The Cubs would never do that to one of their top prospects.

Baez will likely slot lower in the lineup I believe to get his feet wet. It was said that Alcantara will not lead off and will hit 2nd where he had more success. Not sure how much this changes now that Baez is here.

He could put on a nice power display in Coors.

Javier Baez will be promoted to the Cubs on Tuesday.
Baez got off to a slow start this season at Triple-A Iowa, but he hit .322 with a 1.046 OPS, 12 home runs, and 38 RBI over his last 40 games and obviously isn't being promoted to sit on the Cubs' bench. The talented 21-year-old can play both shortstop and second base, and is worth adding in all mixed fantasy leagues for the stretch run.

I feel like this is bad news for Alcantara for this year's playing time.

Only so many AB for Castro, Alcantara, Valbuena, and Baez.

Alcantara will strictly be playing CF the rest of the year.
