Jorge Soler went 3-for-5 and hit his 10th homer Monday as the Cubs edged the Pirates 8-7 in 13 innings.
The Cubs won on Miguel Montero's pinch-hit single in the 13th. Soler, who homered off Tony Watson to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth, was gone by that point, having been removed on a double switch. Still, it was a much needed strong night for him. The Cubs are about to get Chris Coghlan back and they've been using Ben Zobrist more in the outfield in order to keep Javier Baez's strong glove in the infield. Soler needs to hit if he's going to play a lot during September. Aug 30 - 1:32 AM

Jorge Soler went 0-for-4 before being lifted from Friday's game against the Dodgers.

He also had a really ugly play in left field in which a ball that should have been caught bounced in front of him and then by him. It didn't hurt the Cubs, though, since it came with two outs and no one on and the next batter was retired. Still, Soler's glove is a problem and he's cooled off some of late after his fast start in his return from the DL. He might be a bit player down the stretch.

Jorge Soler (leg) went 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI in his return to action Wednesday.

Soler was out a handful of days after fouling a ball off his leg over the weekend. The double was his seventh of the season. He's slashing .246/.328/.440 in 65 games.
Aug 25 - 8:43 AM

Jorge Soler was scratched from Sunday's lineup with a sore leg.

Soler fouled a ball off his leg during Saturday's game and is apparently still sore. Consider him day-to-day. Matt Szczur has assumed his spot in the lineup.
Aug 21 - 1:46 PM

Jorge Soler went 2-for-4 and hit a three-run homer against the Brewers on Wednesday.

If not for Chris Coghlan's injury, Soler probably would have been on the bench for this one. However, he's been killing the ball since returning from the disabled list 12 days ago, and now that Coghlan is down, he's due more playing time against righties. It's time to pick him back up in mixed leagues.
Aug 17 - 11:27 PM

Jorge Soler went deep again Sunday in the Cubs' victory over the Athletics.

It was a solo shot in the top of the seventh inning off A's starter Sean Manaea. Soler also singled in the game, finishing 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored. He has two homers, a double, and five RBI in three games since being activated from the disabled list on Friday. Soler missed nearly two months with a severe hamstring strain but looks poised for a strong finish.
Aug 7 - 7:15 PM

Jorge Soler hit a three-run homer Friday in his return from the disabled list.

Soler was awful on his rehab assignment, but the Cubs had to activate him at some point and it made since to do so in the AL park in Oakland this weekend. How Soler hits the next couple of days could determine how much action he sees in left field next week.
Aug 6 - 1:28 AM

Cubs activated OF Jorge Soler from the 15-day disabled list.

Soler missed two months of action with a nagging hamstring issue. He's starting in the designated hitter spot and batting sixth in Friday's interleague matchup against the Athletics.
Aug 5 - 5:30 PM

Jorge Soler (hamstring) flew to Chicago to be examined on Thursday.

Assuming he checks out fine, Soler's activation from the disabled list appears imminent. He's missed the last two months with a strained hamstring and has batted only .162 (6-for-37) with 16 strikeouts in 11 games on his rehab assignment.
Aug 5 - 9:37 AM

Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Tuesday that Jorge Soler (hamstring) will get 9-10 more minor league at-bats before he is activated from the disabled list.

So that would be three or four more minor league games, which puts him on target to return this weekend. Soler is 2-for-13 with eight strikeouts so far between Double-A Tennessee and Triple-A Iowa. He has been out since June 7 with a left hamstring strain.

Jorge Soler (hamstring) finished 0-for-3 with three strikeouts in his first rehab game Wednesday with Triple-A Iowa.

Iowa had a doubleheader, but Soler only played in the first game and obviously didn't look great. He will probably be asked to continue his rehab assignment through the weekend. The outfielder has been on the disabled list since June 7 with a hamstring strain and he was batting just .223/.322/.377 in 152 plate appearances prior to the injury.
Jul 21 - 10:10 AM

Jorge Soler (hamstring) is expected to begin a rehab assignment this week.

Soler did some running on Sunday and is nearing game action. He's missed the last six weeks of action with a strained hamstring. Soler is sporting a disappointing .223/.322/.377 batting line on the season.
Jul 17 - 1:42 PM

Jorge Soler (hamstring) could be close to beginning a rehab assignment.

Soler has missed the last month of action with a strained left hamstring, but he's made some progress recently. "We thought it was going to be a longer process, but he had another evaluation and it was good news," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. "I don't know what that means, but doctors believe he has made some progress. I would like to believe we're getting close for him for a rehab assignment."
Jul 10 - 9:20 AM

Jorge Soler (hamstring) has advanced to taking batting practice.

That's a good sign, though there's no indication Soler is ready or even close to beginning a rehab assignment. Kris Bryant has manned left field in Soler's absence. The Cubs are already down a left fielder with Kyle Schwarber (torn ACL) out for the season.
Jun 23 - 6:16 PM

Cubs placed OF Jorge Soler on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Soler exited Monday's game with the injury and an MRI on Tuesday confirmed the strain. It's possible that he'll need to miss more than 15 days. The Cubs have called up prospect Albert Almora to take Soler's place on the active roster, though Kris Bryant is getting the start in left field on Tuesday.
