Cubs | Jorge Soler moved up to Iowa

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 21:14:04 -0700

The Chicago Cubs promoted OF Jorge Soler from Double-A Tennessee to Triple-A Iowa Tuesday, July 22.

FANTASY TIP: Soler is one of the team's top prospects, and he is a must-have fantasy option in long-term keeper leagues. He could possibly see a call-up when rosters expand September 1, so he isn't a bad stash candidate in NL-only non-keeper leagues, either.
