The Puerto Rican infielder of the Cubs, Javier Báez, arrived at Wrigley Field on Tuesday feeling "a little better" according to manager Joe Maddon, but did not play in the second game against the Mariners.

Báez is out of action due to a left thumb injury.

The Cubs had the day off Wednesday. Maddon expressed optimism that Baez can return to the field for the start of the Chicago series in Milwaukee on Thursday.
