Baez to Iowa?

Could we see Baez in an Iowa Cubs uniform this season? The Cubs number one prospect has slugged 12 HR and 8 2B bringing his OPS just north of .900 in 35 games at Tennessee. His numbers look similar to Daytona with the exception that he is striking more (29% in AA / 23% in high A). Even With the increased wiff rate, I believe the Cubs should still promote the young shortstop. You would like to see him walk more but when you’re hitting monster blasts to all parts of the field then I could understand the tendency to swing more often. I can see him being more patient when he sees advanced pitching in Iowa. It’s worth a try with only a few weeks left in the season for minor league ball.
