Extra bases

Extra bases

• Cubs outfielder Brian Bogusevic, who has been rehabbing a strained left hamstring, went 4-for-4 on Friday with the Mesa Rookie League team, and will join Triple-A Iowa to continue his rehab.

Bogusevic, sidelined since July 15, was 10-for-25 (.400) in seven games with Mesa, hitting four doubles and one triple. He also stole three bases.

• Scott Baker will begin his second Minor League rehab stint on Sunday, starting for Class A Daytona. Baker last pitched July 29, and weather delayed his next start. The right-hander is coming back from Tommy John surgery, and the Cubs hope he is healthy enough to appear in a big league game this year.

In three starts with Class A Kane County, Baker gave up 13 earned runs over 8 2/3 innings, while striking out five. In one start with Daytona, he gave up one earned run on three hits over 3 1/3 innings.

Arodys Vizcaino, also rehabbing from Tommy John surgery on his right elbow, is to go to Mesa on Wednesday to continue his rehab there.
