Jorge Soler not the worst stash in the world


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/24/2014) Cubs outfield prospect Jorge Soler has played all of 22 games above Class A, which would suggest he's still a ways from reaching the big leagues. And yet what he did in those 22 games got him promoted from Double- to Triple-A, which would suggest he's on the fast track.

As I pointed out in this week's Prospects Report, it would make sense. Soler is unique from most other prospects in that he's already signed to a long-term deal. The Cubs are paying him the same through 2020 no matter when he arrives or what he does, so they only hurt themselves by holding him back. Certainly, they want him ready, but a .415 batting average and 1.355 OPS at Double-A, if only in 22 games, is a pretty good indication he is.

If he keeps it up at Triple-A, the Cubs might decide to cash in on all the money they're paying him and run him out there for the last six weeks or so. And given his experience from Cuba, it wouldn't necessarily be a case of him just getting his feet wet.

Granted, a lot has to go right for all that to happen, but it's a likely enough scenario for you to take a flier on Soler if you don't like what you see on waivers.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2014) Cubs outfielder Jorge Soler said he's grown as a player ever since his bat-wielding incident last year in the Florida State League (Class A). Although he never swung the bat at anyone, Soler still served a five-game suspension because he charged an opposing team's dugout with a bat in his hand.

"You have to respect baseball and my teammates," Soler said through a translator Wednesday, per ESPN. "It was a big mistake that I made. But I learned from it." 

It's more than just words from Soler. Cubs manager Rick Renteria said Soler gives off a "very calm" demeanor.

"It doesn't look like pressure affects him very much," Renteria said. "From what I've seen he's very composed."

Aside from the suspension, Soler also missed a great deal of time in 2013 due to a stress fracture in his left leg. He's looking forward to putting the '13 season behind him and focusing on his future.

"It was a rough year," Soler said. "But I'm working hard to be better. I'm in good shape. I've been running a lot. I have no soreness or anything. Everything is 100 percent."
