Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune writes that "the expectation is Jorge Soler will be dealt at some point for young starting pitching."
Soler saw sporadic playing time in 2016 and with the return of Kyle Schwarber in 2017 and signing of Jon Jay, a lack of consistent playing time next year would again appear to be in the cards. The Cubs have flirted with dealing Soler in the past but might finally pull the trigger on a trade this winter. He's hit a disappointing .258/.328/.434 so far in the majors, but Soler will turn just 25 in February and is under contract cheaply through 2020. Dec 4 - 9:34 AM

Jorge Soler went 2-for-3 with a triple on Friday, but it wasn't enough to lead the Cubs to victory over the Indians in Game 3 of the World Series.

As a team, the Cubs tallied just five hits, with Soler netting two of them. He tripled with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning on a ball that Lonnie Chisenhall was unable to field along the wall down the right field line, the Cubs were unable to cash him in though. Even with the two hits, Soler is hitting just .154/.313/.308 for the postseason.

The Cubs' full lineup looks like this: Dexter Fowler CF, Kris Bryant 3B, Anthony Rizzo 1B, Ben Zobrist LF, Willson Contreras C, Soler RF, Javier Baez 2B, Addison Russell SS, Kyle Hendricks P.
