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.

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.

Jorge Soler hit safely in his seventh consecutive game since making his major league debut, going 1-for-4 with a two-run double in Wednesday's win against the Brewers.

Soler has also driven in at least one run in six of seven games. His third-inning, two-run double kicked off what turned out to be a four-run frame. The 22-year-old has taken only 28 trips to the plate but owns a sparkling .462/.500/1.000 slash line with three home runs and 10 RBI.

Jorge Soler went 1-for-3 with a walk, an RBI single and a run scored against the Brewers on Tuesday.

Soler now has at least one hit in all six games since being promoted. He's hitting .500 (11-for-22) with three homers, eight RBI and five runs scored. He won't keep up that breakneck pace, but Soler certainly looks the part of another future Cubs star thus far.

Jorge Soler (legs) is not in the Cubs' lineup Sunday.

He's now sat out two of the last three games. Soler dealt with injuries to both legs this season in the minors, and the Cubs want to be careful with his usage with the big club. Expect the slugger to continue seeing regular days off during the final month. Soler has three homers and seven RBI in his first four major league games. Logan Watkins is in right field Sunday.

Jorge Soler blasted a pair of home runs and drove home three, powering the Cubs to a 7-2 victory over the Cardinals on Friday.

He finished the night 3-for-3 plus a walk. Soler tied the game with a solo shot off opposing starter Shelby Miller in the seventh inning, then tagged Pat Neshek for a two-run blast the following inning. He has started his big league career off with a bang, going 7-for-11 (.636) with three homers and six RBI in his first three games. He needs to be owned and started in all mixed leagues.
