Jorge Soler blasted his first home run as a member of the Royals in a victory over the Orioles on Sunday afternoon.

Jorge Soler went 1-for-4 with an RBI to provide the Royals' only run in a blowout loss to the Rays on Wednesday.

He stroked an RBI double in the ninth inning with the Royals down 12-0. It was Soler's first hit and RBI of the season after 17 plate appearances. Soler missed the first month of the season with an oblique injury. He was mashing during his minor league rehabilitation stint but the hot streak did not carry over to the majors upon his promotion. This is his first campaign with the Royals after registering a .238 batting average with 12 homers and 31 RBI in half a season with the Cubs last year.
May 10 - 10:21 PM

Jorge Soler is in the starting lineup and batting seventh in his Royals' debut against the Indians on Saturday.

Soler's minor league rehab assignment was cut short after crushing the ball through 10 games at Triple-A Omaha. From a fantasy perspective, you'd like to see him hitting a little higher in the lineup, but his power potential plays even from the seventh spot. He's a nice contrarian option if playing the early slate in DFS on Saturday.
May 6 - 12:22 PM

Royals activated OF Jorge Soler from the 10-day disabled list.

Soler was expected to remain on his minor league rehab assignment until early next week, but was hitting so well that they decided to bring him back early. He'll make his Royals' debut on Saturday against the Indians.
May 6 - 11:27 AM

Jorge Soler (oblique) went 2-for-2 with a walk Monday in his latest rehab game with Triple-A Omaha.

Soler, who is working back from an oblique strain, is now hitting .308/.419/.538 with two homers and five RBI through eight games on his rehab assignment. While he has found his groove offensively, the Royals are expected to keep him on his rehab assignment through May 10, the final day of his 20-day window.
May 2 - 11:25 AM

The Royals plan to keep Jorge Soler (oblique) on his rehab assignment through May 10.

That's when the allotted 20-day period runs out. "His rehab assignment runs through May 10," general manager Dayton Moore said Thursday. "And at this point in time, we fully expect to utilize that period of time for him to get some at-bats and get caught up." It had been looking like Soler could be activated as soon as this weekend, but apparently his fantasy owners will have to wait a while longer. Soler is batting .250/.348/.550 with two homers in his first six rehab contests.
Apr 28 - 10:53 AM

Jorge Soler (oblique) went 1-for-4 with a home run and a walk Tuesday with Triple-A Omaha.

He now has two home runs in five rehab games, but Royals manager Ned Yost said Tuesday that no decision has been made about Soler's activation date. The 25-year-old outfielder landed on the disabled list at the end of spring training with a strained left oblique. He should join Kansas City's lineup at some point in the next week.
Apr 25 - 6:51 PM

Jorge Soler (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Omaha on Friday.

Soler got a late start to the season because of a strained left oblique, and he had a setback while taking swings in the cage last weekend. However, he's ready to test things out in a game now. Soler should need only a handful of games before being activated.
Apr 21 - 2:39 PM

Royals manager Ned Yost said Jorge Soler (oblique) could head out on a minor league rehab assignment this weekend.

Soler suffered a minor setback last weekend while taking swings in a batting cage, but he's already back to working out and still has a chance of making his Royals debut before the end of April. Soler landed on the disabled list before Opening Day with a strained left oblique muscle. Paulo Orlando has been serving as Kansas City's primary right fielder in the early going.
Apr 18 - 5:07 PM

Jorge Soler (oblique) suffered a minor setback while taking swings in the cages over the weekend.

Soler felt some minor tightness in his side, so the Royals are going to back off for a couple of days. Assuming the issue proves to be minor, he could be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment in the next week or so.
Apr 18 - 2:29 PM

Jorge Soler (oblique) has started to take batting practice, and barring any setbacks he'll head out on a minor-league rehab stint soon.

Soler was able to take batting practice and shag balls in the outfield before Saturday's game against the Angels, and he is scheduled to do so again on Sunday. Until Soler is able to return it will be Paulo Orlando holding down the fort in right field.
Apr 16 - 1:24 AM

Royals placed OF Jorge Soler on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left oblique.

Soler suffered the injury a week ago. It's been diagnosed as a Grade 1 strain, so he shouldn't be sidelined too long provided that he can avoid setbacks. Paulo Orlando will see most of the playing time in right field while Soler is on the shelf.
Apr 2 - 11:40 AM

Jorge Soler has been diagnosed with a Grade 1 left oblique strain and will be held out of baseball activities for a week.

It's the mildest of the strains, and the Royals haven't even officially made a decision on a disabled list stint for Soler yet even though Opening Day is in a week. Ultimately, a stay on the DL is virtually a given here, although it sounds like there's hope that he won't miss much time.
Mar 27 - 7:08 PM

Jorge Soler has been diagnosed with a strained oblique and will likely open the 2017 season on the disabled list.

His disabled list stint can be backdated to sometime in March so that he might only have to sit out one week of regular-season games. Soler, acquired this winter from the Cubs for closer Wade Davis, was batting just .143/.254/.286 through 59 plate appearances in this year's Cactus League. Terrance Gore now projects to make the Royals' roster out of camp.
