The next super prospect to get the call to the Majors is going to be Jorge Soler, especially if he continues the tear that he is on. Soler has been banged up for almost the last year and a half, but he has the look of someone that is back to 100%
Last night he had himself a huge game for Iowa, he went 2-for-3 with a double, his fifth Iowa home run, two walks, three RBI’s, and three runs scored. The transition from level to level for Soler has been impressive in that there really hasn’t been one. Seamless is a word that comes to mind, and because of this, I expect that Soler will be up with the big league club in right field on September first, if not sooner.
Joel Sherman just broke the news on Twitter that the “Yankees tried for Soler, but lost out to Cubs”
[UPDATE] MLBTradeRumors.com is confirming Soler to the Cubs, but siting the same tweet we did, still unconfirmed as far as I’m concerned.
[UPDATE] Ken Rosenthal has confirmed the Soler to the Cubs rumor as well, looks like it’s official.
Multiple reports now confirm… Jorge Soler is a Chicago Cub!! Tons of details to follow obviously. Stay Tuned.
