Cubs | Jorge Soler in at DH

Sat, 15 Aug 2015 13:55:44 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler (calf) was a late swap to designated hitter Saturday, Aug. 15, due to a sore right calf.

Fantasy Tip: Soler ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is hitting fifth against lefty Jose Quintana, but a sore back calf when hitting doesn't bode well for hitting the ball with authority. He's a risky play on FantasyScore tonight.

Cubs | Jorge Soler out Friday

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 10:01:56 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 14. OF Chris Denorfia is starting in right field and hitting seventh against Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija.

Fantasy Tip: Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has had a fine season in a reserve role for the Cubs, and he's hitting .298 (31-for-104) with both of his home runs against right-handers this year. However, he remains mainly a sleeper pick in one of your three outfield spots as a way to save some salary space.

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler has a .417 batting average (5-for-12) with three doubles and a home run over his career against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson. Nelson is starting against Chicago Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Past success isn't a direct indicator of future success, especially with such a small sample size. However, Soler ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has been showing signs of busting out, and he won't break the bank at FantasyScore. He is worth considering if his price fits your lineup assembly strategy.

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 08:50:01 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler hit his first home run since May 29 when he homered in his team's 4-1 win over the Atlanta Braves on Sunday, July 19.

Fantasy Tip: Soler ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) can't have power droughts like this if he hopes to be a fixture in the Cubs lineup for the next decade. Of course, Soler has had injury issues, so that has been part of the problem. Keep an eye on his bat and see if this homer fires up his .259 average.
