• The Cubs named Class A Daytona infielder Javier Baez and Triple-A Iowa pitcher Chris Rusin the organization's Minor League player and pitcher of the month for June, respectively.

Baez, 20, batted .300 with seven doubles and a league-leading nine home runs and 28 RBIs in 24 games. He became the second player in Florida State League history to hit four home runs in a game, doing so June 10 against Fort Myers.

For the season, Baez was batting .272 with 19 doubles, four triples, 17 home runs and 57 RBIs in 73 games. The Cubs' first-round Draft pick in 2011, Baez has a .283 career batting average with 34 doubles, 10 triples, 33 home runs and 104 RBIs in 158 Minor League games.

Rusin, 26, went 3-3 with a 2.86 ERA in six June starts, striking out 26 and issuing eight walks. He gave up three home runs over 44 innings, limiting the opposition to a .234 batting average. On Monday, he was named to the Pacific Coast League All-Star Team.

The lefty threw his first-career shutout in Iowa's 2-0 victory June 17 against Omaha as part of a career-high, 24-inning scoreless streak spanning four starts from June 7-22.
