2016 Fantasy Baseball Outlook

Soler didn't quite bring the power in his first full season in Chicago - with just 10 home runs in 366 at-bats, his slugging percentage was a disappointing .399 - but part of that can be attributed to...

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Of all the big-time prospects the Cubs called up in 2014, Soler took to the majors the best. He was called up on a Wednesday in August and hit three home runs and drove in seven before the weekend was out. He slowed down a bit down the stretch, but still finished with a .903 OPS in 97 plate appearances with the Cubs. His 6:24 BB:K ratio and .350 BABIP suggest he was a little lucky, but he'll be just 23 on Opening Day and has a lot of room to grow. He looks like a solid bet to be the starter in right for the Cubs in 2015 and beyond.

2014

Soler missed the last three months of the season with a stress fracture in his leg, but he still remains one of the top prospects in a good system. Don't be fooled by his poor numbers in the AFL after the long layoff, as he was well on his way to a strong season with High-A Daytona before the injury. Still, he has just 344 at-bats in the minors, and none of them were at upper levels, so expect the 21-year-old outfielder to get a bit more seasoning this year. When he makes the majors, he could be a perennial 20-20 threat.

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.
