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.

Jorge Soler (hamstring) will undergo an MRI on Tuesday.

Soler exited Monday's game against the Phillies with a left hamstring injury. The Cubs will look at the test results before deciding on a possible stint on the disabled list.
Jun 6 - 10:38 PM

Jorge Soler was diagnosed with a left hamstring injury.

Soler suffered the injury while running down the line on a single in the third inning Monday versus the Phillies. He's being evaluated, but a trip to the disabled list could be in his future.
Jun 6 - 8:23 PM

Jorge Soler exited Monday's game against the Phillies in the third inning with an apparent injury.

Soler appeared to tweak something while running to first base on a single. It's too bad, as he finally appeared to be coming around at the plate recently. The Cubs should pass along an update soon.
Jun 6 - 8:08 PM

Jorge Soler went 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBI as the Cubs topped the Phillies on Friday.

Soler got the Cubs on the board first with an RBI single in the first inning before slugging a long solo homer in the fourth. According to Statcast, the blast checked in at 461 feet, which is the longest home run by a Cubs player this season. After getting off to a miserable start, the 24-year-old is hitting .346 (9-for-26) with three home runs and six RBI over his last nine games. The talent is clearly there.

Jorge Soler is out of the Cubs' starting lineup on Wednesday afternoon against the Cardinals.

Soler slugged a two-run homer as part of a three-RBI performance on Tuesday night in St. Louis, but he'll be on the bench at the opening of Wednesday's matinee. Kris Bryant is starting in left field and batting third and Tommy La Stella is starting at third base and batting sixth versus Cardinals right-hander Carlos Martinez.

Jorge Soler belted a two-run homer and recorded three RBI in Tuesday's win over the Cardinals.

Soler drew a bases-loaded walk in the first inning and smacked a two-run shot to dead center field in the fifth to knock starter Michael Wacha out of the game. He also added another walk and an infield single. Soler looks like he could be turning the corner slowly but surely, picking up seven hits -- including a pair of homers -- over his last 21 at-bats.
May 24 - 11:02 PM

Jorge Soler went 2-for-4 and hit his third homer Friday against the Giants.

If Jason Heyward lands on the DL after Friday's injury, it'd put Soler in pretty good position to play regularly for a spell. He hasn't gotten it going yet, what with his .200 average in 95 at-bats, but he can still be a significant asset in mixed leagues if he's a full-timer.
May 21 - 1:38 AM

Jorge Soler is not in the Cubs' lineup Sunday.

Soler is batting only .174/.263/.267 this season and his playing time has been sporadic even with Kyle Schwarber (knee) out for the season. Javier Baez is at third base and Kris Bryant is in left field.
May 15 - 10:39 AM

Jorge Soler struck out all four times he was up in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Padres.

Soler also started the first game, going 1-for-4 in that one. He's been getting less playing time with Javier Baez and Tommy La Stella playing well in the infield, and it's possible the Cubs will choose to send him down so that he can get regular at-bats for a while. That said, his strikeout rate was well down coming into this one and his exit velocity has been terrific; most likely, he would succeed if used as a regular.
May 11 - 11:02 PM

Jorge Soler is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Padres.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon is going with Kris Bryant in left field and Javier Baez at third base. Soler is batting just .181/.274/.278 through 29 games this season.
May 10 - 3:26 PM

Jorge Soler is not in the Cubs' lineup on Friday.

The Cubs are going with Kris Bryant in left field and Javier Baez at third base. Soler is off to a disappointing .196/.291/.348 start at the plate.
Apr 22 - 2:39 PM

Jorge Soler is out of the Cubs' lineup Wednesday.

Kris Bryant will start in left field and Tommy La Stella will start at third base against Cardinals right-hander Carlos Martinez. Soler had a bad night defensively on Tuesday and he struck out three times in four plate appearances. He's batting .200/.306/.350 on the year.
Apr 20 - 10:58 AM

Jorge Soler went 2-for-4 with a home run in a win over the Rockies on Saturday.

Soler followed Anthony Rizzo's fourth inning bomb with a blast of his own. Also worth noting was Cubs manager Joe Maddon's faith in the 24-year-old, as Soler batted cleanup with Jason Heyward and Ben Zobrist getting the day off. That's not likely to stick when the regulars return, but it says something about how Soler is swinging the bat lately after a slow start. Soler is 6-for-15 (.400) with two home runs, four RBI and six runs scored in his last six games.
