Cubs | Jorge Soler sitting vs. Nationals

Wed, 27 May 2015 13:08:37 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler is not in the starting lineup against the Washington Nationals Wednesday, May 27. OF Junior Lake is batting sixth and playing right field.

Fantasy Tip: Soler ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has been struggling to take off at the plate, and he is currently leading the National League in strikeouts (62). However, Soler still has a respectable .273 batting average and .333 on-base percentage. Warmer weather could help heat up his bat, so seasonal owners will want to remain patient. Lake ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is nothing more than a low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests Wednesday, especially facing Max Scherzer.

Cubs | Miguel Montero hitting cleanup Thursday

Thu, 07 May 2015 09:45:16 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is hitting cleanup against St. Louis Cardinals SP John Lackey Thursday, May 7, and OF Jorge Soler has been dropped to fifth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is only in the cleanup spot today while Dexter Fowler is being rested, which pushed everyone up a few spots. He'll have extra chances to drive in runs, though, especially with Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant, two players that get on base often, in front of him. Montero is a nice value play at catcher on a day when many regulars are being rested.

Cubs | Jorge Soler out of lineup vs. Cards

Mon, 04 May 2015 12:21:40 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler is not in the starting lineup against the St. Louis Cardinals Monday, May 4. OF Chris Denorfia is starting in right field and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Soler in daily contests Monday. His 38 strikeouts pace the league, and while his yearly numbers aren't awful (11 runs, two home runs, nine RBI and a .269/.337/.409 slash line), Soler has looked a little miffed at the plate of late. Denorfia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has been limited primarily to pinch-hitting duty, but at his cap hit, he could return nice value. He isn't without risk, though.

Cubs | Jorge Soler leading off Saturday

Sat, 02 May 2015 07:26:55 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler is batting first in the starting lineup Saturday, May 2.

Fantasy Tip: Soler ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is on a bit of a cold streak with only two hits in his last seven games. Soler still is a solid starting option for owners on FantasyScore, but owners could also look for players who have had more success at the plate recently.

Cubs | Jorge Soler goes deep twice

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 21:46:37 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler hit a pair of two-run home runs in the team's extra-innings win over the Cincinnati Reds Monday, April 13. He went 3-for-5 with three runs scored and four RBI in the game.

Fantasy Tip: Soler ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has tremendous upside in the Cubs' young lineup. He's off to a good start, too, going 7-for-23 (.304) with two home runs and six RBI. Coming off a big game, Soler is a nice option Tuesday against Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani.

Cubs | Jorge Soler goes yard

Sat, 28 Mar 2015 06:51:40 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler hit his third home run of the spring Friday, March 27. He has six runs, nine RBI and a .333/.370/.619 slash line through 46 plate appearances.

Fantasy Tip: Soler was a heavily inked breakout target throughout the offseason and is now a staple in the early middle rounds of drafts. He flashed high-end upside late last season with 5 five home runs and 20 RBI in just 97 plate appearances. It is worth noting he has just 111 at-bats at the Triple-A level, though, so there is a degree of risk. Still, his power potential is worth grabbing if you need pop.

Cubs | Jorge Soler having solid spring

Fri, 20 Mar 2015 14:30:22 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler has reached safely in all nine spring training games he has played and currently sports a .407 batting average.

Fantasy Tip: Soler proved his high-end upside late last season with 5 five home runs and 20 RBI in just 97 plate appearances. He enters 2015 a heavily inked breakout candidate and is steadily generating movement into the early middle rounds of drafts. It is worth noting, Soler has dealt with leg issues in the past and has just 110 at-bats at the Triple-A level. It is ill-advised to allow him to slip too far in the middle rounds of drafts, though, and especially if you need a power boost.

Cubs | Jorge Soler adds muscle

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 10:28:00 -0800

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler, who is listed at 215 pounds, said he currently weighs 242 pounds after adding plenty of muscle in the offseason. Soler thinks he has maintained his range in the outfield despite the added weight.

Fantasy Tip: Soler, 23, smacked five home runs and had 20 RBI in just 97 plate appearances in his first taste of the big leagues late in 2014. He should see everyday playing time immediately in 2015, making him a sleeper prospect in the middle rounds of standard leagues. Despite a vicious uppercut swing, Soler makes enough contact to be a candidate for a breakout season.
