Joe Maddon considering OF Jorge Soler for Cubs' No. 2 spot
|(3/28/15) With the No. 2 spot still undecided in the Cubs' lineup, manager Joe Maddon said outfielder Jorge Soler could be the man for the job, according to MLB.com.|
“He’s a really interesting baseball player,” Maddon said. “I’d heard good things, but his impression on me has been really strong.”
Outfielder Chris Coghlan has been the frontrunner for the role but Maddon likes Soler's plate discipline.
“With [Soler], it goes beyond his power. This guy looks over a baseball now. This guy has great decision-making ability at the plate," Maddon said. That bleeds into either you’re driving in the second leadoff hitter plus one, or he’s setting up somebody after him because the guy is going to take his walks."
Soler is hitting .333 this spring with three home runs, eight doubles and 20 RBI.
Cubs to be cautious with Jorge Soler
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(2/22/15) The Cubs will be cautious with outfielder Jorge Soler during camp, according to MLB.com.
Soler has dealt with injuries throughout his minor-league career, and the club wants to make sure he's 100 percent healthy heading into the season. The team is mainly concerned about Soler's legs, and will make sure he doesn't overwork himself.
The 22-year-old Soler hit .292/.330/.573 over 89 at-bats in the majors last year.

|(9/12/14) Cubs rookie phenom Jorge Soler has left the team for Miami for the birth of his first child. He will miss the weekend series in Pittsburgh and return Monday for the home series against Cincinnati.
Soler has hit safely in all but one game since his promotion and owns a stat line of .356/.367/.733. with four home runs and 14 RBI in 12 games.
Jorge Soler goes deep Wednesday
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(9/11/14) Cubs outfielder Jorge Soler went yard Wednesday against the Blue Jays.
Soler struck in the seventh inning. With the bases empty, Soler clubbed a 92 mph fastball out to right for the solo shot. It was Soler's only hit of the night. He finished 1 for 4, with one run scored and one RBI.
|2014 summary: Jorge Soler didn't have much minor league experience under his belt coming into 2014, and missing the bulk of the first half with hamstring injuries didn't help to speed his progress towards the majors. However, once healthy, Soler breezed through assignments at Double-A Tennessee and Triple-A Iowa, earning a major league callup in late August. In 24 games, the 22-year-old batted a robust .292 with five home runs and 20 RBI.|
Playing time status: Soler is slated to be the Cubs' starting right fielder. Though the Cubs will reportedly comb the market this offseason for outfield options, Soler's status as an everyday player looks the safest of the team's current projected outfielders.
2015 outlook: Though Soler doesn't bring the speed component that Javier Baez and Arismendy Alcantara do, he could be the most valuable of the three young Cubs who debuted last season. His extra-base power could exceed that of Baez, and though he is no contact hitter, he will likely post a lower strikeout rate and higher batting average than either Baez or Alcantara. Though there is risk involved in banking on a player with all of 24 games of big league experience, Soler has the upside of a top 30 outfielder.
