FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Cubs now "seem disinclined" to trade Jorge Soler to clear right field for Jason Heyward.
There's been some speculation that the Cubs will trade Soler for a starter and move Heyward to right field to set up an acquisition for a center fielder. Rosenthal is hearing otherwise, as the club currently appears content to play Heyward in center field and hold on to their collection of young talent. Things could always change if the right offer comes along for Soler, but they could wait things out and address roster weaknesses during the season. Wed, Dec 23, 2015 10:02:00 AM

ESPN's Jayson Stark listed Jorge Soler as one of the players the Braves have asked for in trade discussions for Shelby Miller.

Soler is still a Cub so it doesn't look like Chicago had much interest in that trade. The Cubs recently added John Lackey to a rotation that already includes Jon Lester and Cy Young winner Jake Arrieta so it's unlikely they'd make a big splash by adding someone like Miller. ESPN's Jerry Crasnick suggested the team is much more likely to pursue a top closer. Meanwhile, Atlanta's asking price for Miller continues to be sky-high. A.J. Pollock and Joc Pederson are two other players the Braves have targeted in recent trade talks.

Jorge Soler jolted his first career postseason homer Saturday in the Cubs’ win over the Cardinals in Game 2 of the NLDS.
