Soler's two-bagger knotted the game up at six, and set the stage for the team to post three more in the ninth for the victory. 

This was Soler's fourth two-hit performance in his last seven games. However, he was hitless int he other three games, and he is now 8 for 29 over that stretch.


Cubs OF Jorge Soler: I expect more from me


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) Cubs outfielder Jorge Soler is having a fine debut to the major leagues this season. The rookie is hitting .267 with 14 RBI in 161 at-bats this season, but he his still hoping for more, according to the Chicago Tribune.

"So far, I don't feel good about what I've done," Soler said Saturday. "I expect more from me."

Soler has struck out 59 times so far this season, 15 more than anyone else on the team. He also noted he thinks his hamstrings will hold up this year after missing more than two months in 2014 because of hamstring injuries.


RF Jorge Soler hitting cleanup for Cubs


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/11/2015) The Cubs open a series against the Mets on Monday with a slightly revamped lineup that features right fielder Jorge Soler hitting cleanup for only the second time this season. 

Soler only has three home runs on the season, but with catcher Miguel Montero out of the lineup in place of David Ross, the Cubs will slide his bat into that power position. 

Soler's other appearance in the 4-hole came on May 5, when he went 1-for-4 in a loss to the Cardinals. The Cubs (-142) are favorites in Monday's contest. 


Cubs' Jorge Soler batting fifth Wednesday vs. Cardinals


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2015) Cubs right fielder Jorge Soler has been dropped to fifth in the order for Wednesday's matchup with the Cardinals.

It's the third straight game in which Soler has been moved down in the order, as he saw his first action leading off Friday before resuming his familiar role in the second slot Saturday. After a day off, he batted cleanup in the team's matchup with a lefty Tuesday.

Soler had hit in one of the top four spots of the lineup in all of his starts this season before batting fifth Wednesday. The move down isn't due to production, as the right fielder is 6 for 17 over the last seven days.

The Cubs are underdogs (+109) against the Cardinals Wednesday.


Cubs RF Jorge Soler returns to lineup Tuesday, hits cleanup


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/5/2015) Cubs right fielder Jorge Soler returned to the starting lineup for Tuesday's contest against the Cardinals. Soler was hitting in the cleanup spot for the first time this season, as manager Joe Maddon did some juggling in his batting order.

Cubs give RF Jorge Soler day off Monday vs. Cardinals


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/4/2015) Cubs right fielder Jorge Soler was given the day off on Monday against the Cardinals. Soler had started each of the Cubs' first 23 games of the season, and with just seven hits in his last 34 at-bats, he seemed due for a rest, though he is riding a modest three-game hitting streak.

Manager Joe Maddon said that while Monday's break was just to give the right fielder a breather, the team will monitor him as the weather heats up, ESPN reports. Soler has previously dealt with leg issues.

"Dehydration is the thing I'm always concerned with," Maddon said. "The hotter it gets the more and more I'm worried about that kind of a thing. We have to be really proactive the next couple of weeks making sure we don't run anyone into the ground."

Chris Denorfia replaced Soler in right field, while Chris Coghlan moved up to the second spot in manager Joe Maddon's batting order. 


Cubs' Dexter Fowler, Jorge Soler back in normal spots Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Cubs center fielder Dexter Fowler and right fielder Jorge Soler have assumed their regular spots in the batting order Sunday, with Fowler leading off and Soler following him in the second slot.

Manager Joe Maddon bumped Soler to the leadoff role Saturday, wanting to send a message that the right fielder was "out there to score runs." He went 1 for 3 with a walk in the game and is now 3 for 7 in his team's series against the Brewers. Fowler is back in the leadoff spot after going 0 for 4 with two strikeouts as the No. 2 hitter Saturday.

The Cubs are heavy favorites (-160) against the Brewers Sunday.


Move to lead-off spot helps Cubs' Jorge Soler


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/2/2015) Cubs manager Joe Maddon decided to give right fielder Jorge Soler a new outlook by moving him into the leadoff spot for Saturday's game against Milwaukee. 

"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."

The move worked. Soler snapped a 6-for-35 cold spell by going 1 for 3 with a walk from the leadoff spot on Saturday. 


Cubs swap Dexter Fowler and Jorge Soler in the batting order


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/2/2015) Cubs manager Joe Maddon swapped Dexter Fowler and Jorge Soler in the batting order on Saturday against Mike Fiers and the Brewers, per the team's official website.

Soler, who has only four hits in his last 30 at-bats with 17 strikeouts, moved to the leadoff spot for the first time in his career, while Dexter Fowler was dropped to the No. 2 hole in the order. Soler went 2 for 4 on Friday. Fowler is hitting .440 (11 for 25) with a walk, a double and two RBI over his last seven games played.

Chicago is favored (-166) at Wrigley Field, per VegasInsider.com.


Cubs' Anthony Rizzo, Jorge Soler swap lineup spots Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/28/2015) Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo has been moved up to the No. 2 spot in the batting order for Tuesday's matchup with the Pirates, while Jorge Soler has been bumped down one spot and is batting third.

It's the third time in a row that manager Joe Maddon has used this configuration against a lefty, with Rizzo batting behind Soler in the team's last eight matchups with a righty. The lefty first baseman actually performed better against lefties last season, hitting .300/.421/.507 with eight home runs in 140 at-bats, and the trend has carried over this April.

The Cubs are favorites (-117) against the Pirates Tuesday.


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
(4/26/2015) Cubs right fielder Jorge Soler has struck out 17 times over his last eight games after managing just nine strikeouts in his first eight games, but manager Joe Maddon says there's nothing wrong with his swing, MLB.com reports.

"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."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Joe Maddon considering OF Jorge Soler for Cubs' No. 2 spot


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(3/28/2015) 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.
