Jorge Soler went 2-for-3 with a double, but the Cubs lost Monday's game 6-0 to the Cardinals.

Soler was the only Cub to register multiple hits, and he was also the only Cub to register an extra-base hit on the evening. He went 0-for-3 on Sunday, his first game back since being activated from the disabled list following an ankle injury. The 23-year-old is hitting .267/.322/.405 with four home runs and 19 RBI this season.

Cubs activated OF Jorge Soler from the 15-day disabled list.

Soler went just 2-for-13 with four strikeouts during his four-game rehab stint with Triple-A Iowa, but his ankle is feeling fine and that's all the Cubs really care about. The youngster missed just over a month of action with a sprained left ankle.

The Cubs are expected to activate OF Jorge Soler (ankle) from the 15-day disabled list on Sunday.

Soler went 2-for-13 with four strikeouts during his four-game rehab stint with Triple-A Iowa. He'll immediately take over for Chris Denorfia in right field. The 23-year-old went on the DL last month with a sprained left ankle.
Jul 4 - 10:43 PM

Jorge Soler (ankle) is slated to play nine innings at Triple-A Iowa on Friday.

If all goes well, it could be the final step before he's cleared to rejoin the Cubs. The young slugger has been on the shelf since early June with a left ankle sprain.
Jul 2 - 11:33 PM

Jorge Soler (ankle) went 0-for-3 with an RBI groundout Monday in his first minor league rehab game with Triple-A Iowa.

"He looked good," said Iowa manager Marty Pevey. "He made a great catch down the right-field line in the bullpen and he got his at-bats in, and we'll build on today's game." Assuming Soler feels good, he's expected to play seven to nine innings on Tuesday and get four at-bats. He's on track to join the Cubs this weekend. Soler has been sidelined for about a month with a left ankle sprain.
Jun 30 - 11:01 AM

Jorge Soler (ankle) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Iowa on Monday.

Soler was finally cleared for game action after running the bases without any issues over the weekend. He's only expected to need a couple of games before he's ready to rejoin the Cubs, so expect to see him for their upcoming weekend series against the Marlins.
Jun 28 - 6:02 PM

Jorge Soler (ankle) will begin a rehab assignment this week.

The specifics of the assignment aren't known yet, but Soler was cleared for game action after running the bases this weekend with no issues. He shouldn't need too many games before being activated, so Soler figures to rejoin the Cubs prior to the All-Star break.
Jun 28 - 9:01 AM

Jorge Soler tested his injured ankle by running to first base on Friday.

Everything went well by all accounts. He's expected to continue baseball activities throughout the weekend and could be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment next week. He's on track to return to the Cubs lineup in early July.
Jun 26 - 7:41 PM

Jorge Soler (ankle) is about a week away from beginning a rehab assignment.

He shouldn't need too many rehab games before being activated, so a rehab before the end of next week is likely. Soler has been on the shelf since early June with a left ankle sprain.
Jun 22 - 6:16 PM

It's the first time that he had done so since being sidelined with an ankle injury on July 1. He has now shed his walking boot and could be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment at some point next week.

Jorge Soler (ankle) began throwing on Sunday as he continues to recover from a left ankle sprain.

It's the first baseball activity that he's been cleared for as he has yet to begin hitting. He remains in a walking boot, though is expected to shed it soon. He's eligible to return from the disabled list on June 17, though it looks like his return might not happen before the end of the month.
Jun 14 - 5:47 PM

Jorge Soler's ankle injury is feeling better, but he has yet to resume baseball activities.

Soler was placed on the disabled list on June 3 with a left ankle sprain. While he hasn't resumed baseball activities as of yet, the swelling in the ankle has subsided and he's begun to walk around without the use of a boot. Soler will likely need a rehab start or two before he's activated, but the outfielder has indicated he hopes to be ready by June 17, the first day he would be eligible to return.
Jun 12 - 3:02 PM

Jorge Soler (ankle) expects to be activated from the disabled list on June 17, the first day he's eligible.

The swelling in Soler's left ankle has subsided greatly since he was placed on the disabled list last week. "I've improved a lot since I got hurt," Soler said. The outfielder has yet to resume baseball activities, so it would be wise not to write down a June 17 return in ink until he's working out with no issues. Still, the early signs are encouraging.
Jun 7 - 9:31 AM

Cubs placed OF Jorge Soler on the 15-day disabled list with a left ankle sprain.

Soler suffered the injury Monday while running to first base and hadn't shown enough improvement over the last couple of days to warrant staying active. The 23-year-old Cuban should be ready when his 15-day stint is over. Junior Lake figures to get a nice boost in playing time over the next two weeks.
