Cubs | Jorge Soler resumes hitting

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 16:41:58 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler (hamstring) has resumed taking batting practice.

Fantasy Tip: No official timetable has been established for Soler's return but he should remain stashed in all fantasy formats despite his slow start to the 2016 season. The 24-year-old is batting .223 with five homers and 13 RBI through 50 games this year.

Cubs | Still no timetable for Jorge Soler

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 22:11:42 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler (hamstring) is "progressing well," manager Joe Maddon said Saturday, June 18. However, the skipper said he has "no idea about the finish line," or the return date, for Soler.

Fantasy Tip: Soler should be kept reserve in all fantasy leagues until he can officially return and knock off the rust in a few games before trusting him again in the active lineup.

Cubs | Jorge Soler, Tommy La Stella returns TBD

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 11:55:52 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler (hamstring) and 2B Tommy La Stella (hamstring) have no timetable for their returns. Soler did some work Friday, June 17, but he won't be ready when he's eligible June 22.

Fantasy Tip: Soler is worth stashing because of his talent, but he has underperformed this year. La Stella is an NL-only stash, but he lost value when Chris Coghlan was acquired.

Cubs | Jorge Soler to DL, Albert Almora called up

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 13:37:10 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler (hamstring) was placed on the disabled list after an MRI exam showed a strained hamstring Tuesday, June 7. OF Albert Almora has been called up from Class AAA Iowa in a corresponding move. The Cubs are saying Soler will be out for at least 15 days, and they won't know more about his timetable until they see how he progresses in his rehab. Almora was hitting .318 with a .779 OPS in 54 games for Iowa.

Fantasy Tip: Soler had picked it up of late but is hitting just .223 with five home runs and 17 RBI on the season. He can be cut in shallow mixed leagues since there's no guarantee he'll play every day once he returns. Almora is a top prospect of the Cubs who makes consistent contact and hits to all fields. His power should develop over time. Add him immediately in keeper and NL-only leagues and take a wait-and-see approach in mixed leagues to see how much the Cubs use him. Tommy La Stella and Javier Baez figure to see a big boost in value with Soler on the DL, too.

Cubs | Tommy La Stella starting Tuesday

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 11:31:30 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B Tommy La Stella is starting at third base and is hitting sixth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerad Eickhoff Tuesday, June 7. 3B Kris Bryant is shifting to left field with OF Jorge Soler (hamstring) sidelined.

Fantasy Tip: La Stella could see a lot more playing time in the near future if Soler's hamstring injury is serious enough to land him on the DL. La Stella has hit in his opportunities, too, batting .280 with two homers and seven RBI in 75 at-bats. He could become an option off the waiver wire in deep mixed leagues if he starts every day in this potent lineup.

Cubs | Jorge Soler having MRI

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 05:42:36 -0700

Updating previous reports, Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler (hamstring) will have an MRI on his left hamstring Tuesday, June 7.

Fantasy Tip: Soler has started to hit better since the calendar turned to June going 5-for-11 (.455). He has plenty of talent, and if he lands on the DL, he's worth consideration for the stash. Matt Szczur will likely see more time in the outfield if Soler misses time. He'd be a daily target in good matchups.

Cubs | Jorge Soler has hamstring checked

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 17:33:54 -0700

Updating a previous report, Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler (hamstring) is being evaluated for a left hamstring injury after leaving the team's game Monday, June 6.

Fantasy Tip: Soler had to depart the contest after running out a single, so we'll see if this ends up being an injury that keeps him out a few games. If that is indeed the case, Matt Szczur would have the most to gain.

Cubs | Jorge Soler leaves game Monday

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 17:21:37 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler (undisclosed) hurt himself running down the line on a single in the team's game Monday, June 6. He was removed from the contest as a result.

Fantasy Tip: Soler has a disappointing .211/.313/.367 line, but he's a solid power bat to have on fantasy rosters while receiving regular playing time in Chicago's potent lineup. If he has to miss any time, Matt Szczur would probably get the biggest boost, though he's not worth adding just yet.

Cubs | Addison Russell, Jorge Soler out

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 09:16:00 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Addison Russell and OF Jorge Soler are not in the starting lineup Friday, June 3. 2B Javier Baez is starting at the 6 and is hitting eighth, while 3B Tommy La Stella is at third base and is batting sixth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Archie Bradley. 3B Kris Bryant shifts to left field.

Fantasy Tip: Baez's power-speed combination is intriguing in most fantasy formats, but his playing time has been an issue. His daily upside is limited, though, while hitting low in the order. La Stella has done nothing but produce when he's played this year, hitting for a .286/.383/.500 slash line with two home runs and seven RBI. He's a fine value selection in DFS today.

Cubs | Javier Baez in, Jorge Soler out

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 12:20:20 -0700

Chicago Cubs INF Javier Baez is starting at third base and batting seventh against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Mike Bolsinger Wednesday, June 1. OF Jorge Soler is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Baez didn't do much with his opportunities in May and posted an unimpressive .219/.254/.297 slash line over 67 plate appearances. Additionally, he isn't seeing enough starts to hold onto in shallow formats or leagues with small benches. However, his growing position eligibility and upside are attractive if you have the roster room to remain patient. Soler, meanwhile, has begun to show signs with an active 9-for-33 run with two doubles, three home runs and six RBI. He should be owned in the majority of leagues and started when in the lineup while hitting well.
