Jorge Soler (side) is in the Cubs' lineup Sunday.

Soler has dealt with an injury to his right side the last couple weeks, but an MRI came back clean and he'll give it a go in the regular season finale. He's in left field and batting seventh against Robert Stephenson and the Reds.
Oct 2 - 11:37 AM

Jorge Soler (side) is expected to play on Sunday.

Soler has played just twice in the past two weeks due to a side injury. He'll have to show he's healthy on Sunday in order to be part of the NLDS roster.
Sep 30 - 5:31 PM

An MRI taken Monday on the right side of Jorge Soler showed no major damage.

Soler is hanging back in Chicago for now, but he should rejoin the Cubs for their final regular-season series this weekend in Cincinnati. This was the second MRI on his right side, which has been causing Soler discomfort for the last two weeks. It sounds like a relatively minor oblique issue.
Sep 27 - 5:44 PM

Jorge Soler will have his right side examined.

Soler recently missed some time with tightness in his side and he was moving gingerly during Sunday's game. The Cubs should have an update on his status by the end of the day Monday or Tuesday afternoon.
Sep 26 - 7:55 PM

Jorge Soler returned to the Cubs starting lineup on Saturday.

Soler has been held out of the lineup since experiencing tightness in his side last Friday. He's getting the start in left field and will bat seventh against Alex Reyes and the Cardinals on Saturday.
Sep 24 - 10:14 AM

Jorge Soler (side) struck out as a pinch hitter in Friday afternoon's victory over the Cardinals.

He was forced to leave last Friday's game due to tightness in his side and hasn't appeared in the starting lineup since. He's expected to return at some point this weekend.
Sep 24 - 8:46 AM

Jorge Soler (side) could be available off the bench as soon as Wednesday.

Soler exited Friday's game with tightness in his right side, but fortunately an MRI came back clean. He could be ready to return to the starting lineup as soon as this weekend.
Sep 19 - 5:37 PM

An MRI on Jorge Soler's injured right side came back negative.

Soler tweaked his side on Friday but apparently has avoided the dreaded oblique strain. The Cubs are considering him day-to-day, but with little for them to play for at this point, expect Soler to rest for a while.
Sep 18 - 12:34 PM

Jorge Soler was lifted from Friday's game versus the Brewers with tightness in his right side.

Soler has been playing well since returning from a hamstring injury but now has a new ailment to deal with. The Cubs should have more on his status after the game, but if it's an oblique injury obviously it has the potential to keep him out a while.
Sep 16 - 3:53 PM

Jorge Soler (toenail) went 2-for-3 with an RBI single and a walk in his return to the lineup Monday versus the Brewers.

Soler was held out of the starting lineup on Saturday and Sunday due to an ingrown toenail. It shouldn't be an issue moving forward.
Sep 6 - 9:10 AM

Jorge Soler (toenail) drew a walk as a pinch-hitter on Sunday against the Giants.

Soler was held out of the Cubs' lineup due to an ingrown toenail. He can still be considered day-to-day.
Sep 5 - 9:28 AM

Jorge Soler was scratched from the Cubs starting lineup on Saturday due to an ingrown toenail.

Soler had been slated to hit cleanup for the Cubs against Madison Bumgarner and the Giants on Saturday. Consider him day-to-day. Tommy LaStella is taking his spot in the lineup, with Ben Zobrist shifting to the outfield.
Sep 3 - 12:32 PM

Jorge Soler went 3-for-5 and hit his 10th homer Monday as the Cubs edged the Pirates 8-7 in 13 innings.

The Cubs won on Miguel Montero's pinch-hit single in the 13th. Soler, who homered off Tony Watson to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth, was gone by that point, having been removed on a double switch. Still, it was a much needed strong night for him. The Cubs are about to get Chris Coghlan back and they've been using Ben Zobrist more in the outfield in order to keep Javier Baez's strong glove in the infield. Soler needs to hit if he's going to play a lot during September.
Aug 30 - 1:32 AM

Jorge Soler went 0-for-4 before being lifted from Friday's game against the Dodgers.

He also had a really ugly play in left field in which a ball that should have been caught bounced in front of him and then by him. It didn't hurt the Cubs, though, since it came with two outs and no one on and the next batter was retired. Still, Soler's glove is a problem and he's cooled off some of late after his fast start in his return from the DL. He might be a bit player down the stretch.
