Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler, who is listed at 215 pounds, said he currently weighs 242 pounds after adding plenty of muscle in the offseason. Soler thinks he has maintained his range in the outfield despite the added weight.
Fantasy Tip: Soler, 23, smacked five home runs and had 20 RBI in just 97 plate appearances in his first taste of the big leagues late in 2014. He should see everyday playing time immediately in 2015, making him a sleeper prospect in the middle rounds of standard leagues. Despite a vicious uppercut swing, Soler makes enough contact to be a candidate for a breakout season.

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler, 22, is expected to make his major league debut sometime this week after hitting .340 with 15 home runs and 57 RBIs combined with Class AA and AAA this season. Soler is described by teammates as a "freakish" athlete that has the potential to be a five-tool player at the next level. Perhaps Soler's best attribute at his young age is his plate discipline, though; he has struck out just 105 times with 66 walks in his three minor league seasons.
