Cubs | Jorge Soler's role unclear

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 21:49:59 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler (hamstring) is close to returning, and manager Joe Maddon said he has "a lot of different thoughts and ideas" about how to work Soler into the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Soler will return to a crowded outfield, and despite his potential, he will be tough to justify owning outside of NL-only leagues.

Cubs | Jorge Soler getting close to return

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 22:29:35 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler (hamstring) needs just nine or 10 additional at-bats for Class AAA Iowa before returning to the parent club according to manager Joe Maddon. Soler has been on the DL since June 7.

Fantasy Tip: Soler posted a soft .223-5-13 line in semi-regular playing time prior to getting hurt, and he'll be rejoining a crowded Cubs outfield whenever he returns. He should be stashed in NL-only leagues. Beyond that, you're just hoping he catches fire and writes his name into the lineup more often.

Yankees | Four players in proposed Chapman deal

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 07:41:10 -0700

Updating previous reports, Chicago Cubs SS Gleyber Torres, RP Adam Warren and two others are in the proposed deal for New York Yankees RP Aroldis Chapman. OF Jorge Soler and 2B Javier Baez are not among them.

Fantasy Tip: If Chapman lands with the Cubs, it's hard to see him setting up for Hector Rondon, who would lose a lot of fantasy luster. Chapman's numbers are stellar as usual, and he's an elite RP in fantasy regardless. The Yankees are expected to wait four or five days to decide whether to move RP Andrew Miller. If Miller stays, he could be in line to return to the closer role. If he is also dealt, Dellin Betances isn't a bad fallback option. Both remain must-owns in any scenario, but Miller could be in line for a big fantasy uptick if he isn't dealt.

Cubs | Timeline for Dexter Fowler, Jorge Soler

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 13:58:42 -0700

Updating a previous report, Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler (hamstring) could return later this week, but OF Jorge Soler (hamstring) will need a longer rehab assignment, according to manager Joe Maddon.

Fantasy Tip: Fowler was close to returning before the All-Star break, so expect him to be 100% healthy and back sooner than later. He's a must-start outfielder in all leagues because of his five-category contributions. Soler is worth owning in deep mixed and NL-only leagues because of his upside, but he likely won't see everyday at-bats, which limits his value. Reiterating a previous tip, Willson Contreras and Javier Baez could see fewer starts once both outfielders are back, and Albert Almora might be optioned back to Class AAA Iowa.

Cubs | Dexter Fowler, Jorge Soler ready for Iowa

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 13:24:29 -0700

Chicago Cubs OFs Dexter Fowler (hamstring) and Jorge Soler (hamstring) are expected to begin their rehab assignments with Class AAA Iowa Tuesday, July 19.

Fantasy Tip: Look for Fowler to pick up where he left off once he's back with the Cubs, and he's a must-start outfielder given his five-category returns (41 runs, seven home runs, 28 RBI, six stolen bases and .290/.398/.483 slash line through 64 games). Soler's flashed his upside, but he's not as sure a bet as Fowler. Still, Soler had 10 runs, three home runs, seven RBI and a 1.027 OPS through 15 games prior to the injury. He should be owned in all deep mixed leagues. Once Fowler and Soler return, Albert Almora is likely to be demoted, and Willson Contreras and Javier Baez could see a slight cut in playing time.

Cubs | Jorge Soler could begin rehabbing soon

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 07:12:27 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler (hamstring) could be close to beginning a rehab assignment, according to manager Joe Maddon. He has been sidelined due to a strained left hamstring since June 7. "We thought it was going to be a longer process but he had another evaluation and it was good news," Maddon said.

Fantasy Tip: Solar should remain stashed in all seasonal formats for now, although he might experience difficulty getting regular at-bats once he returns from the disabled list. For now, OF Albert Almora will continue to see a decent amount of playing time in his absence and he's worthy of consideration for DFS lineups if the matchup is favorable.

Cubs | Jorge Soler takes BP

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 23:04:57 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler (hamstring) took batting practice Monday, June 27, before the game.

Fantasy Tip: Soler doesn't have a timetable on his return yet as he has been on the DL since June 7. He could feasibly be ready for a rehab assignment after a few more days of batting practice. Albert Almora will continue to see spot starts in his place, and he's a DFS matchup play.

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 16:41:58 -0700

Fantasy Tip: No official timetable has been established for Soler's return but he should remain stashed in all fantasy formats despite his slow start to the 2016 season. The 24-year-old is batting .223 with five homers and 13 RBI through 50 games this year.

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler (hamstring) is "progressing well," manager Joe Maddon said Saturday, June 18. However, the skipper said he has "no idea about the finish line," or the return date, for Soler.

Fantasy Tip: Soler should be kept reserve in all fantasy leagues until he can officially return and knock off the rust in a few games before trusting him again in the active lineup.

Cubs | Jorge Soler, Tommy La Stella returns TBD

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 11:55:52 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler (hamstring) and 2B Tommy La Stella (hamstring) have no timetable for their returns. Soler did some work Friday, June 17, but he won't be ready when he's eligible June 22.

Fantasy Tip: Soler is worth stashing because of his talent, but he has underperformed this year. La Stella is an NL-only stash, but he lost value when Chris Coghlan was acquired.
