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.

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler could be called up to the majors from Triple-A Iowa very soon.
Fantasy Tip: Soler is hitting .289 with four home runs and 12 RBIs in 15 games for Iowa since being called up from Double-A Tennessee this year. Soler is similar to the profile of Javier Baez; he has incredible raw power but can be undisciplined at times at the plate. If he's called up, he should be grabbed in most leagues.

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.
