"He's still working his way back," Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer said Saturday. "He's been gaining a little bit of velocity and gaining a better feel as he goes. It's still a process for him. Yesterday was a step in the right direction."
Baker had some setbacks because of the weather, which has interrupted Class A Daytona's schedule.
"He's such a good worker and so dedicated to come back this year," Hoyer said. "Our hope is that he can come back."
