Cubs | Jorge Soler enjoys facing Jimmy Nelson

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 13:28:12 -0700

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.

Cubs | Jorge Soler takes a seat

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

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler is out of the lineup Wednesday, July 29, with OF Chris Coghlan hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Cogs ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has a meager .242-3-6 line this month, but he has a good matchup today in a prime spot in the order. He's worth considering for a speculative flyer on FantasyScore.

Cubs | Jorge Soler breaks homer drought

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 23:22:47 -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.

Soler is an excellent buy-low candidate in seasonal leagues, and FantasyScore players should note, Soler batted fourth behind Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant in both games of the doubleheader Tuesday.

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 14:09:55 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler (ankle) could be activated from the disabled soon, according to manager Joe Maddon Saturday, July 4.

Cubs | Still no word on Jorge Soler's next move

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 06:43:32 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler (ankle) has not been recalled from Class AAA Iowa, though it is expected he will not travel with the team for their upcoming 10-game road trip. Iowa manager Marty Pevey said Soler's timing is off and the reason he has gone just 2-for-13 thus far in his rehab assignment.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players will want to consider Soler ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) a high-risk, high-reward option until he shows more consistency at the plate. He has high-end power upside, but he has struggled to gain traction at the dish this season. Seasonal owners wouldn't be out of line to be equally patient with Soler and not rush him back into their lineup. Expect him to join the Cubs as early as Saturday, July 4.

Cubs | Jorge Soler could be returning soon

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 12:32:29 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler (ankle) is batting second and playing right field for Class AAA Iowa Friday, July 3.

Fantasy Tip: Iowa begins a road trip after the game Friday, so there is a chance it will be Soler's ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) final rehab outing. While FantasyScore players might want to hold off starting him in contests initially to allow him to shake off some rust at the major league level, seasonal owners can return Soler to their lineups immediately upon his recall.
