Cubs | Jorge Soler to return soon?

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 14:09:55 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler (ankle) could be activated from the disabled soon, according to manager Joe Maddon Saturday, July 4.

Fantasy Tip: Soler ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) hit four home runs in 208 plate appearances before landing on the DL. Soler was striking out at a 32.2% clip, negating the positives from his .383 BABIP. Soler should be given some time to catch back up to major league pitching before FantasyScore owners invest.

Cubs | Still no word on Jorge Soler's next move

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 06:43:32 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler (ankle) has not been recalled from Class AAA Iowa, though it is expected he will not travel with the team for their upcoming 10-game road trip. Iowa manager Marty Pevey said Soler's timing is off and the reason he has gone just 2-for-13 thus far in his rehab assignment.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players will want to consider Soler ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) a high-risk, high-reward option until he shows more consistency at the plate. He has high-end power upside, but he has struggled to gain traction at the dish this season. Seasonal owners wouldn't be out of line to be equally patient with Soler and not rush him back into their lineup. Expect him to join the Cubs as early as Saturday, July 4.

Cubs | Jorge Soler could be returning soon

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 12:32:29 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler (ankle) is batting second and playing right field for Class AAA Iowa Friday, July 3.

Fantasy Tip: Iowa begins a road trip after the game Friday, so there is a chance it will be Soler's ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) final rehab outing. While FantasyScore players might want to hold off starting him in contests initially to allow him to shake off some rust at the major league level, seasonal owners can return Soler to their lineups immediately upon his recall.

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler (ankle) is approximately a week away from beginning a minor league rehab assignment.

Expect a rehab stint in the minors to aid his confidence, and for a few more things to go his way once he returns. There may never be a better buy-low window for the promising slugger.

Cubs | Jorge Soler likely needs rehab assignment

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 12:38:04 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler (ankle) has not begun participating in baseball related activities, and he is expected to need a rehab assignment before returning to the Cubs. Soler is feeling better, though, and he is walking more without a walking boot.

Fantasy Tip: Soler ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) wasn't off to the flashy start that was expeceted, however if that is his floor, fantasy owners will be pleased when Soler catches fire at the dish. He is still at least two weeks away from returning, and it wouldn't be surprising if he was out through June. Continue to stash the slugger in all formats. Junior Lake ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) and Chris Denorfia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) have received the bulk of playing time with Soler out, and Lake and Denorfia are low-priced fliers for FantasyScore players.
