Welcome to the latest lesson in Post-Hype Prospects 101. Soler now has 875 plate appearances at the big-league level and has an uninspiring .244/.318/.412 line to show for it. He has nearly 500 plate appearances in Triple-A where he has hit .266/.379/.558 while playing in the eastern division of the Pacific Coast League, including a .267/.388/.564 line last year in Peyton Manning's favorite city of Omaha. Oddly enough, he had 33 extra-base hits last year, of which 24 were home runs. He has power, and he also has youth as he turns 26 this winter. Soler is out of options this year so the Royals need him to make the club just one year after flipping Wade Davis to the Cubs to acquire him. Soler can at least DH for the club if not occupy left field. A buck spent in the endgame could become a double-digit profit if he plays to his potential in 2018.

  2. Jorge Soler 2017 Preseason Outlook
    Soler often found himself the odd man out in a crowded Cubs outfield, registering just 227 at-bats, down from 366 in 2015. He started to flash some more of the power that scouts fell in love with, raising his isolated power from .137 to .198 while improving his strikeout and walk rates. Injuries have plagued Soler the past couple seasons, as he followed up a pair of DL stints in 2015 with a two-month trip to the DL midseason and a multi-week September absence due to a side injury. However, Soler is still just 24 years old and has enormous power, and after being traded to the Royals for reliever Wade Davis, Soler now has a much clearer path to at-bats at the highest level.
  3. Jorge Soler 2016 Preseason 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 two stints on the DL. He hit three home runs in his first five games back in September after missing nearly a month with an oblique injury, so it looked like his power was finally returning when he got healthy. Still, there are the usual warning signs associated with an aggressive young hitter, namely a lack of consistent contact and modest walk rates. If he can't get his contact rate up, he may struggle to hit .240. Any talk of a breakout campaign can be put on hold for now, as the Cubs brought in Jason Heyward and re-signed Dexter Fowler, so Soler will be the odd man out more often than not. His upside makes him worth a bench spot in deeper leagues, but in shallower formats he simply won't get enough at-bats to justify a roster spot early on.
  4. Jorge Soler 2015 Preseason Outlook
    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.
  5. Jorge Soler 2014 Preseason Outlook
    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.
  6. Jorge Soler 2013 Preseason Outlook
    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.
  7. Jorge Soler 2012 Preseason Outlook
    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.
