Baker readies for final rehab start

CHICAGO -- Scott Baker, rehabbing from Tommy John surgery, was at Wrigley Field for a bullpen session on Friday, and he will make one more rehab start for Class A Kane County on Monday.

So far, Baker has made two starts for Class A Daytona and five for Kane County. In his last outing on Wednesday, he retired the first 13 batters he faced and gave up one hit over five innings.

"We'll evaluate and see what we want to do the rest of the month," Cubs manager Dale Sveum said of Baker, who signed a one-year, $5.5 million contract with the team last November.

Kane County's season ends on Monday.
