Cubs | Jorge Soler sidelined past break

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler (shin) has a stress fracture in his left tibia and will be in a walking boot for four to six weeks. The Cubs cannot say whether Soler will miss the rest of the minor league season, but he will miss the Futures Game. This turns out to be quite a blow. Soler has had a mixed back of a year, putting up a solid .281/.343/.467 slash line in 236 plate appearances for Class A Advanced Daytona, but also getting a suspension for his role in a bench-clearing confrontation, getting benched for a perceived lack of hustle and now this injury. Hopefully 2013 is a big-time learning experience for the high-upside prospect.
