Some very exciting news today as the Cubs have announced that Jorge Soler is being promoted from the AZL Cubs to Peoria! To be honest I’m surprised that the Cubs have moved him straight to Peoria and skipped Boise altogether. That should give you a good idea of what the Cubs think of Soler after seeing him play in just 14 games in Arizona. Soler only hit .241 in 54 at bats, but made his presence felt all over the field. He had two doubles, two home runs, and 10 RBI’s, as well as 13 strikeouts, but walked 6 times and had 8 stolen bases. He has shown enough to make the jump to Peoria, the fact that he did so in such a short time is a very good sign.
