Royals optioned OF/DH Jorge Soler to Triple-A Omaha.

Acquired from the Cubs in the offseason Wade Davis trade, Soler has been a major bust this summer, batting just .154/.245/.275 with two homers over 29 games. Billy Burns will take his spot on the Royals' active roster.
Jul 17 - 3:21 PM

Jorge Soler finished with a two-run home run off of Minnesota reliever Buddy Boshers in Game 2 of a doubleheader on Saturday.

Soler missed the first five weeks of the season due to an oblique injury and then he spent four weeks in the minors after struggling at the plate for most of May. Perhaps that time with the Storm Chasers did him some good, as he is 4-for-16 with a double, homer and three RBI in four games since being summoned from the minors.
Jul 2 - 2:03 AM

Jorge Soler went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored Friday versus the Twins.

Soler is 3-for-12 (.250) since returning from the minors. The 25-year-old has struggled at the major league level this season, but there’s opportunity out of the DH spot with Kansas City. His power potential remains intriguing.

Royals recalled OF Jorge Soler from Triple-A Omaha.

Soler was sent down earlier this month after batting an ugly .164/.292/.273 over his first 65 plate appearances. However, he hit a robust .333/.478/.736 with eight homers over 20 games for Omaha since being optioned and should get a good number of starts in the designated hitter spot with Brandon Moss struggling.

Royals optioned OF Jorge Soler to Triple-A Omaha.

The 25-year-old outfielder, and prize of the Wade Davis trade over the winter, was hitting just .164/.292/.273 with one homer, three RBI and a 19/10 K/BB ratio in 65 plate appearances with the Royals. He'll work through his issues in the minors before returning later in the season.
Jun 3 - 12:46 PM

Jorge Soler blasted his first home run as a member of the Royals in a victory over the Orioles on Sunday afternoon.

His solo shot off of Richard Bleier in the sixth inning increased the Royals' advantage to 8-5. He finished the day 1-for-3 plus a walk and is now hitting .143/.273/.321 in his first 33 plate appearances.
May 14 - 7:42 PM

Jorge Soler went 1-for-4 with an RBI to provide the Royals' only run in a blowout loss to the Rays on Wednesday.

He stroked an RBI double in the ninth inning with the Royals down 12-0. It was Soler's first hit and RBI of the season after 17 plate appearances. Soler missed the first month of the season with an oblique injury. He was mashing during his minor league rehabilitation stint but the hot streak did not carry over to the majors upon his promotion. This is his first campaign with the Royals after registering a .238 batting average with 12 homers and 31 RBI in half a season with the Cubs last year.
May 10 - 10:21 PM

Jorge Soler is in the starting lineup and batting seventh in his Royals' debut against the Indians on Saturday.

Soler's minor league rehab assignment was cut short after crushing the ball through 10 games at Triple-A Omaha. From a fantasy perspective, you'd like to see him hitting a little higher in the lineup, but his power potential plays even from the seventh spot. He's a nice contrarian option if playing the early slate in DFS on Saturday.
May 6 - 12:22 PM

Royals activated OF Jorge Soler from the 10-day disabled list.

Soler was expected to remain on his minor league rehab assignment until early next week, but was hitting so well that they decided to bring him back early. He'll make his Royals' debut on Saturday against the Indians.
May 6 - 11:27 AM

Jorge Soler (oblique) went 2-for-2 with a walk Monday in his latest rehab game with Triple-A Omaha.

Soler, who is working back from an oblique strain, is now hitting .308/.419/.538 with two homers and five RBI through eight games on his rehab assignment. While he has found his groove offensively, the Royals are expected to keep him on his rehab assignment through May 10, the final day of his 20-day window.
May 2 - 11:25 AM

The Royals plan to keep Jorge Soler (oblique) on his rehab assignment through May 10.

That's when the allotted 20-day period runs out. "His rehab assignment runs through May 10," general manager Dayton Moore said Thursday. "And at this point in time, we fully expect to utilize that period of time for him to get some at-bats and get caught up." It had been looking like Soler could be activated as soon as this weekend, but apparently his fantasy owners will have to wait a while longer. Soler is batting .250/.348/.550 with two homers in his first six rehab contests.
Apr 28 - 10:53 AM

Jorge Soler (oblique) went 1-for-4 with a home run and a walk Tuesday with Triple-A Omaha.

He now has two home runs in five rehab games, but Royals manager Ned Yost said Tuesday that no decision has been made about Soler's activation date. The 25-year-old outfielder landed on the disabled list at the end of spring training with a strained left oblique. He should join Kansas City's lineup at some point in the next week.
Apr 25 - 6:51 PM

Jorge Soler (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Omaha on Friday.

Soler got a late start to the season because of a strained left oblique, and he had a setback while taking swings in the cage last weekend. However, he's ready to test things out in a game now. Soler should need only a handful of games before being activated.
Apr 21 - 2:39 PM

Royals manager Ned Yost said Jorge Soler (oblique) could head out on a minor league rehab assignment this weekend.

Soler suffered a minor setback last weekend while taking swings in a batting cage, but he's already back to working out and still has a chance of making his Royals debut before the end of April. Soler landed on the disabled list before Opening Day with a strained left oblique muscle. Paulo Orlando has been serving as Kansas City's primary right fielder in the early going.
