Finally. Per David Kaplan, Jorge Soler will be called up by the Cubs, and will be joining the big club in Cincinnati tomorrow.
Soler hit his eighth home run (with Iowa) of the season tonight, off of Mariners number one prospect Taijuan Walker… then was pulled from the game, now we know why. Welcome to Chicago, Jorge! The one thing fans will notice with Soler is the advanced approach, he knows how to work his at bats, and will take his walks, a stark departure from what we have seen from Baez, etc.
Things are getting very interesting… The Cubs have announced that Jorge Soler is being promoted to Iowa, and Albert Almora is being promoted to Tennessee.
The Cubs prospects are getting closer and closer to the Majors, and I’m not even talking about Kris Bryant, or Javier Baez, or Addison Russell… the light at the end of the tunnel is the brightest it has been since the building started.
Bryant, Soler, Baez…. all in the same lineup at Iowa.
Almora joins Russell in Tennesse… exciting days ahead!
