"It's not about changing mechanics or trying new things, but just to think differently," Maddon said, per MLB.com. "I'm all about when a hitter is not going as he can, the last thing you want to do is change the physical mechanics. You want to change the mental mechanics first."

"He sees his name in the leadoff spot, he has a different vibe about him," Maddon continued. "The whole job I want to get across to him is, 'You're out there to score runs. Don't worry about homers, don't worry about hits. You're out there to score runs."

Cubs manager Joe Maddon preaching patience for Jorge Soler


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2015) Cubs manager Joe Maddon knows outfielder Jorge Soler is anxious to take his cuts at the plate, but he wants his young player to stay patient and not make unnecessary changes, according to MLB.com.

"Seriously, when you're walking, you're hitting," Maddon said. "You're not expanding your strike zone, you're not chasing that guy's pitch. He doesn't need to make any physical adjustments -- feet, arms, hands, head. His adjustment has to come from the fact that, 'I'm going to accept my walks.' Once he comes to terms with that, he'll take off again."

Soler is hitting .257 with three home runs and nine RBI and six walks, the fourth most on the team this season.

"The biggest thing I've noticed with him is frustration in other components of his game, and that's what I would like for him to avoid," Maddon said of the young outfielder. "He has shown in the past to be a really patient hitter, who doesn't normally chase, and he has recently."


Cubs' Maddon: Jorge Soler 'has to organize his strike zone'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

"He was doing really well in the beginning and then he started to expand [his zone]," Maddon said of Soler. "There's nothing wrong with his swing -- he just has to organize his strike zone.

"He's a little bit eager," Maddon said. "He's had a lot of guys in scoring position. He's also done some really nice damage."

Soler has gone hitless in three straight games heading into Sunday's action, giving him a .273/.338/.439 line with two home runs and nine RBI in 66 at-bats.


Cubs trying to keep outfielder Jorge Soler fresh this season


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) Cubs manager Joe Maddon wants to keep his players fresh this year. One of his most important players, Jorge Soler, has been taking advantage of days off and rains out to keep extra stress off his legs, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Soler played just 86 games in 2014 while battling hamstring injuries in both legs.

"With the season in progress, I definitely want to be able to rest these guys at an opportune moment," Maddon said. "But for right now, based on the schedules, the frequent off-days at this moment, I think he's OK.

"I do listen. If the trainers suggest he might need a day (off), I definitely would do it."
