|Jorge Soler benched for not running hard|
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(4/29/13) Cubs outfield prospect Jorge Soler was benched Sunday for failing to run out two balls during Saturday's game.
Class-A Daytona manager Dave Keller said Soler sat "because within the philosophy and the work ethic that we are trying to create in this organization -- and that we are trying to get our players to understand -- work ethic, energy, determination, playing hard and running hard is part of the whole program." Soler is expected to return to the team's lineup Monday.

(4/11/13) Cubs prospect Jorge Soler was ejected from Wednesday's game for Class A Daytona after charging at the opponent's dugout with a bat, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
The incident started when Soler appeared to have his hand stepped on while at second base and after the benches cleared, he had to be restrained by teammates from going after the players on Class A Clearwater.
The 21-year-old did not hit any players but smashed the bat against the dugout walls.
Soler went went 1 for 3 with a walk and a run scored before getting tossed. He is batting .435.
|The hype on Jorge Soler heading into 2012 wasn't quite as big as the hype on fellow Cuban defector Yoenis Cespedes, but that's at least partially because Cespedes was already major-league ready. Soler still needs some time to develop, but considering the nine-year deal the Cubs gave him last June, he has a projectable skill set that should make him a Fantasy stud in due time. He certainly got off on the right foot in the lower levels of the minors late last season, actually improving his production with a .338 batting average when he made the jump from Rookie ball to Class A for his final 80 at-bats. And that's not even his best tool. Some within the Cubs organization have compared his power to Sammy Sosa's. The Cubs have been equally impressed with his pitch selection and patience, so he'll likely have a leg up on the competition as he begins to play in the upper levels of the minors. If it shows up his numbers, the Cubs might not be able to prevent him from ascending all the way to the big leagues. Considering he's only 21, they could hold him back if they so choose, but the bottom line is Soler is more polished than most prospects his age. In addition to being a must-own in long-term keeper leagues, he's stashable in NL-only formats. (Updated 1/4/13)|
