Cubs placed OF Jorge Soler on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left oblique.
It'll be at least a four-week injury for Soler, which means he might not play again in the regular season. The Cuban outfielder has had a relatively disappointing year, but he's still a dangerous presence in the middle of the Cubs' lineup with 21 RBI in 33 games in the second half. Chris Coghlan will probably be moved back to the outfield. Tommy La Stella has been called up to help at second base. Aug 24 - 11:41 AM
