Cubs | Jorge Soler to play this week

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 13:17:52 -0700

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.
