Report: Javier Baez call up official, Blake Parker optioned

The Chicago Cubs made Javier Baez‘s call up official by optioning reliever Blake Parker to Triple-A Iowa Tuesday afternoon, reports MLB.com’s Carrie Muskat.

Parker, 26, was recalled up by the Cubs on Saturday when Felix Doubront was placed on the disabled list with a left calf strain. He is 1-1 with a 6.57 ERA in nine appearances and a 1.297 WHIP over 12 1/3 innings.

Baez will wear No. 9.
