Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler hit his third home run of the spring Friday, March 27. He has six runs, nine RBI and a .333/.370/.619 slash line through 46 plate appearances.
Fantasy Tip: Soler was a heavily inked breakout target throughout the offseason and is now a staple in the early middle rounds of drafts. He flashed high-end upside late last season with 5 five home runs and 20 RBI in just 97 plate appearances. It is worth noting he has just 111 at-bats at the Triple-A level, though, so there is a degree of risk. Still, his power potential is worth grabbing if you need pop.

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler has reached safely in all nine spring training games he has played and currently sports a .407 batting average.
Fantasy Tip: Soler proved his high-end upside late last season with 5 five home runs and 20 RBI in just 97 plate appearances. He enters 2015 a heavily inked breakout candidate and is steadily generating movement into the early middle rounds of drafts. It is worth noting, Soler has dealt with leg issues in the past and has just 110 at-bats at the Triple-A level. It is ill-advised to allow him to slip too far in the middle rounds of drafts, though, and especially if you need a power boost.

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.
