The Cubs are attempting to re-program the way Soler's body moves to help prevent his hamstring issues from developing into a chronic problem, ESPN Chicago's Jesse Rogers reports. "We discovered there may be some ways to sort of re-program his posture and muscle distribution on his body posterior and anterior to (change) the way his feet work and hit the ground," team president Theo Epstein said. "If it continues to go well it won't be long before he's back in Tennessee."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Signed to a nine-year, $30 million deal, the toolsy Cuban defector tore up Low-A in 80 at-bats with a .338/.398/.513 line with three homers, six walks and only six strikeouts. At 6-foot-3 and 205 pounds, the 21-year-old has the frame to generate big power as he fills out, but he's still raw and likely at least another year away from making his major league debut. As a result, the Cubs held him out of the Arizona Fall League to work with the team's instructors at their complex in Mesa, a sign that 2013 will probably see him at High-A and Double-A.

2012

Soler is a Cuban defector who some scouts say has five-tool potential. At age 19 with a 6-foot-3, 205-pound body, he's seen having significant power potential and speed. However, not much is known about him outside of him playing in some international compeitions and he'll likley be several seasons away from the majors wherever he signs.
