Indians | Cleveland has interest in Jorge Soler

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 10:24:18 -0800

The Cleveland Indians have shown interest in trading for Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler this winter.

Fantasy Tip: Soler may be more expendable now after the Cubs just signed Jason Heyward to play the outfield. Soler is a gifted athlete with plenty of upside at the plate, but he strikes out too much right now for his fantasy owners. He's still worth taking a chance on in the middle rounds in fantasy drafts, though.

Braves | Atlanta keen on adding Jorge Soler

Tue, 01 Dec 2015 10:42:09 -0800

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler is of trade interest to the Atlanta Braves, according to sources. While it is believed SP Julio Teheran would not be enough for Chicago to pull the trigger, SP Shelby Miller is a potential trade piece to complete the deal.

Fantasy Tip: Miller is coming off a fantastic season where his lack of run support held him to six wins despite a 3.02 ERA. In fact, Miller went 24 consecutive starts without recording a victory. Expect a solid four-category return from Miller in 2016, especially in a new location. Soler struggled with injuries and inconsistency in 2015, but the raw talent at the dish is obvious, and there is significant upside in the power categories with the outfielder. Stay tuned, but note, Soler's fantasy stock would likely take a hit joining a new team.

Cubs | CHC to explore trade talk for two players

Sun, 15 Nov 2015 14:14:56 -0800

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler and 2B Javier Baez are the subject of trade interest, and the team will explore offers, according to sources. 3B Kris Bryant, SS Addison Russell and OF Kyle Schwarber are also attracting attention but the club does not intend to move them.

Fantasy Tip: Soler and Baez would bring back pitching, which is what the Cubs sorely need more of at the moment. Soler will get attention in the middle rounds of most mixed drafts, and Baez figures to go a bit lower.

Cubs | Jorge Soler moves up to No. 2

Wed, 21 Oct 2015 12:39:16 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler is hitting second and starting in right field against New York Mets SP Steven Matz in Game 4 of the National League Championship Series Wednesday, Oct. 21. OF Kyle Schwarber has been dropped to sixth in the lineup against the lefty.

Fantasy Tip: Soler ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) is seeing the ball well and had a home run last night. He had just two of his 10 homers against lefties during the year, but the move up the lineup makes him a more intriguing pick on FantasyScore today. Schwarber ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) also went deep last night and has five bombs in the postseason, but he hit just .143/.213/.268 with two of his 16 homers off southpaws. This might be the day to fade Schwarber.

Cubs | Jorge Soler back in lineup

Tue, 20 Oct 2015 13:23:29 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler is back in the lineup for Game 3 of the National League Championship Series Tuesday, Oct. 20, against the New York Mets. Soler will hit sixth against Mets SP Jacob deGrom.

Fantasy Tip: Soler ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) is one of the top home-run threats at Wrigley Field -- then again, who isn't? -- but at this low price he's worth saving a little cap money to put him in.

Cubs | Jorge Soler not in NLCS Game 2 lineup

Sun, 18 Oct 2015 13:19:37 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Oct. 18, for Game 2 of the National League Championship Series against the New York Mets. OF Chris Coghlan is in right field and hitting sixth against Mets SP Noah Syndergaard.

Fantasy Tip: Soler ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) is hitting .268-8-34 against right-handed pitching, but he has a .200 average against the Mets. He will probably see pinch-hitting duty at some point, but for now leave him out of FantasyScore lineups.

Cubs | Jorge Soler in RF again

Mon, 12 Oct 2015 11:07:22 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler is starting in right field and is hitting second against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha in Game 3 of the division series Monday, Oct. 12. OF Chris Coghlan will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Soler ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is riding a high right now after carrying the Cubbies to the win in Game 2, and he's in a favorable lineup spot against Wacha, who has struggled to close out the season. Soler isn't a bad pick in one of your three outfield spots on FantasyScore.

Cubs | Jorge Soler fuels Game 2 win

Sat, 10 Oct 2015 19:20:33 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler went 2-for-2 with a home run, a double, two RBI, a run scored and two walks in a 6-3 win over the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 2 of the National League Division Series Saturday, Oct. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Soler ($4,300, 10.6% of cap) struggled down the stretch of the regular season after returning from an injury, but the talented youngster possesses intriguing upside. For the price, he makes a decent low-priced gamble at FantasyScore when he is in the lineup.

Cubs | Kyle Schwarber not starting Game 2

Sat, 10 Oct 2015 11:43:17 -0700

Chicago Cubs C/OF Kyle Schwarber is not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia in Game 2 of the National League Division Series Saturday, Oct. 10. OF Jorge Soler will bat second and play right field.

Fantasy Tip: Soler ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) hit .308 with a home run and four RBIs in 39 at-bats against the Cards during the regular season but he only hit .240 versus lefties and has never faced Garcia in his career. He is making his first start in nearly two weeks and is a somewhat risky play in FantasyScore Saturday.

Cubs | Jorge Soler takes a seat

Thu, 01 Oct 2015 07:05:47 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler is out of the lineup Thursday, Oct. 1, with OF Austin Jackson hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: A-Jax ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has a .375-1-7 line in 16 at-bats the last week. Those were his only RBIs in his .226 month of September. Lefty John Lamb is a good matchup for him as he is hitting .282 against lefties this year. He's a solid choice on FantasyScore in the lower levels.
