Jorge Soler went 2-for-5 with a run scored against the Mets on Tuesday.

Soler scored the first run of the game on a Starlin Castro double in the fifth inning. The 23-year-old has scored four runs in his last six games, and he's got 15 runs scored and 13 RBI overall. In his first full year in the majors, Soler is batting .280/.338/.424.

Jorge Soler is not in the Cubs' starting lineup on Monday night against the Cardinals.

It's a day of mental and physical rest for Soler, who's sporting an underwhelming .269/.337/.409 batting line with 38 strikeouts in 23 games this season. Chris Denorfia is starting in right field and Chris Coghlan is batting second Monday against Cardinals right-hander Carlos Martinez.
May 4 - 3:29 PM

Jorge Soler is hitting atop the Cubs lineup for the first time in his career on Saturday.

Soler has functioned primarily as the second hitter in Joe Maddon's lineup this season, but he's opted to flip him with Dexter Fowler on Saturday. Perhaps it's being done as an effort to get him to be more patient, as Soler has struck out a league-leading 35 times against eight walks in his first 95 plate appearances.
May 2 - 10:30 AM

Jorge Soler finished with four hits and a pair of runs scored in five trips to the plate in Monday's win versus the Pirates.

Soler singled and scored in the fifth, then doubled and scored in the seventh. The young outfielder is on a seven-game hitting streak and has safely hit in 10 of 12 games overall. He owns an impressive .320/.364/.520 slash line with two home runs and nine RBI to begin the season.
Apr 20 - 10:55 PM

Jorge Soler had a big night on Monday, going 3-for-5 with a pair of two-run home runs and scoring the winning run as the Cubs walked off winners in 10 innings against the Reds.

Soler put the Cubs on the board in the third inning with a two-run homer off of Mike Leake. He later belted a two-run homer off of Jumbo Diaz in the eighth to knot the game at 6-6. In the 10th, Soler singled to push the potential winning run to third base in Anthony Rizzo, but Rizzo was promptly erased on a fielder's choice play at the plate. Soler then scored the winning run on an Arismendy Alcantara single to right-center. Soler hadn't done a whole lot at the dish entering the evening, so Monday's performance will be a huge boon to his stats in the small sample size. He has the potential to put up huge numbers this season.
Apr 13 - 11:25 PM

Jorge Soler struggled in Sunday's season opening loss to the Cardinals, going 0-for-4 with a strikeout.

As a team, the Cubs were able to muster only five hits against Adam Wainwright and company in the shutout. Soler also looked lost as he misplayed a couple of balls in right field. The 23-year-old has tremendous potential in 2015, but didn't get his season started off the way he would've liked.
Apr 5 - 11:22 PM

Jorge Soler launched one of four Cubs home runs off Jeff Samardzija on Friday as they dispatched of the White Sox 6-3 in Cactus League action.

Soler was the first to take Samardzija out of the yard on Friday, blasting a two-run homer to put the Cubs on the board in the first inning. Anthony Rizzo, Starlin Castro and Chris Coghlan would each get in on the fun before the afternoon was through. Soler has been mighty impressive in Cactus League play, hitting .333 (14-for-42) with three homers and nine RBI.
Mar 27 - 8:14 PM

Jorge Soler hit the first of back-to-back-to-back homers for the Cubs Tuesday in the fourth inning of their loss to the Indians.

Soler led off the frame with a longball and Javier Baez and Kris Bryant followed him up with dingers of their own in a display that surely had Cubs fans salivating. Trevor Bauer was victimized on all three homers. Soler batted .292/.330/.573 with five homers in a 24-game cup of coffee for the Cubs in 2014 and is slated to hit in the middle of their batting order in 2015.
Mar 10 - 7:43 PM

Jorge Soler bulked up to 242 pounds over the winter.

And it was muscle, not fat. Soler carries breakout potential into 2015 after posting a .903 OPS in his first 24 major league games last season. The 23-year-old right fielder from Cuba is expected to be the Cubs' primary cleanup hitter.
Mar 2 - 1:30 PM

According to Carrie Muskat of MLB.com, the Cubs will be very careful with young outfielder Jorge Soler during spring training to avoid any leg injuries.

They won't allow Soler to be on his feet for too long. The 22-year-old appeared in 24 games down the stretch for the Cubs in 2014, slashing an impressive .292/.330/.573 with five homers and 20 RBI. He'll serve as the Cubs primary right fielder in 2015 and is expected to hit cleanup in a much improved lineup.
Feb 22 - 4:17 PM

It was the rookie's first ever three-bagger in the majors. Soler had one of 11 Cubs hits and scored one of their five runs on the day, but they were handily out-slugged 14-5. He's hitting .361/.397/.738 so far in the bigs.
