Cubs prospect OF Jorge Soler (hamstring) was 1-for-2 with a home run and two RBI Thursday during his rehab assignment in the Rookie-level Arizona League.

Soler has looked good so far in his three rehab games, as he's now 5-for-10 with a homer, two doubles and four RBI while working back from a hamstring injury. The 22-year-old has been limited to only seven games at Double-A Tennessee this season, but he's put up solid numbers when healthy with a .382/.462/.735 batting line to go along with seven doubles and seven RBI. He's likely to return to the level once his rehab assignment is complete.

Cubs prospect OF Jorge Soler went 2-for-2 with a doubles and two RBI on Thursday for Double-A Tennessee.

Soler also coaxed a pair of walks in the game to reach base in all four plate appearances. The 22-year-old had been on the disabled list since April 3 with a hamstring injury, so it was encouraging to see him make an immediate impact upon his return to Tennessee. In 2013, Soler batted ..281/.343/.467 with 22 extra-base hits (eight homers), 35 RBI and a 38/21 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 55 games for High-A Daytona before a fractured left tibia prematurely ended his season.

Cubs outfield prospect Jorge Soler (hamstring) is close to returning to action at Double-A Tennessee.

Cubs outfield prospect Jorge Soler will undergo an MRI after aggravating a hamstring injury Thursday in a game at Double-A Tennessee.

The Cubs will surely play things safely with Soler even if the MRI comes back relatively clean. The Cuban defector still needs plenty of seasoning before being considered for a call-up.
Apr 4 - 12:59 PM

Cubs optioned OF Jorge Soler to Double-A Tennessee and OF Matt Szczur, 2B Arismendy Alcantara and 2B Logan Watkins to Triple-A Iowa; reassigned 3B Kris Bryant, OF Albert Almora, RHP Carlos Pimentel, 2B Jeudy Valdez and LHP Eric Jokisch to minor league camp.

The list includes some of the Cubs' top prospects, including Soler, Bryant and Almora. The 22-year-old Soler hit .281/.343/.467 at High-A Daytona last season and could see the majors in 2014. Bryant was the Cubs' first-round choice in the 2013 MLB Draft, and Almora was the club's first-rounder in 2012.
Mar 12 - 7:01 PM

Jorge Soler smashed an RBI triple in his lone at-bat in Friday's Cactus League victory over to the Angels.

His pinch-hit triple in the ninth inning broke a scoreless tie and provided the Cubs their margin of victory. The 22-year-old is in camp as a non-roster invitee, and has little-to-no chance of making the team out of spring training. He's slated to begin the year at Double-A Tennessee.
Mar 7 - 11:27 PM

Jorge Soler (leg) hit a three-run double Wednesday in his second Arizona Fall League game.

Soler was shut down in June with a fractured left tibia after batting .281/.343/.467 with eight homers, 35 RBI, and five stolen bases in 55 games at High-A Daytona. Now back to full health, the talented 21-year-old Cuban should continue to rake in the prospect-packed AFL. He could very well open the 2014 season at Double-A.

Cubs prospect outfielder Jorge Soler (leg) is preparing for the Arizona Fall League.

Soler batted .281/.343/.467 with eight homers, 35 RBI, and five stolen bases in 55 games with High-A Daytona this season prior to suffering a fractured left tibia in June, but he has resumed baseball activities. The 21-year-old was ranked as the No. 18 prospect in the game on Baseball America's midseason list.

Jorge Soler (leg) is likely done for the season.

Soler's fractured left tibia has not progressed to the point where it's realistic that he'll be able to get back into minor league games before the end of the 2013 campaign. But the highly-touted 21-year-old Cuban defector could participate in the Arizona Fall League. He hit .281/.343/.467 with eight homers, five steals and 35 RBI in 55 games this summer for High-A Daytona.

Jorge Soler (leg) will be examined Monday in Chicago.

Soler hasn't played since late June due to a stress fracture in his left tibia. The 21-year-old will have to make quick progress in order to make it back by the end of the minor league season, but he is a candidate for the Arizona Fall League.
