Jorge Soler News
Miami Marlins outfielder Jorge Soler (back) is unlikely to return before the end of the season, according to manager Don Mattingly. Soler recently completed baseball activities in Florida, including taking batting practice on the field on Aug. 29 and hitting in a simulated game on Sept. 3, had his rehab moved to Miami on Sept. 9. He last played in a major league game on July 22, when he was removed due to back stiffness. "Soli's kind of been a little bit 'feel 100 percent, feel 100 percent, feel a little something, feel 100 percent, feel 100 percent, feels a little something,'" Mattingly said. "It seems like [a return this season] is probably out the window, too." The 30-year-old Cuban slugger has hit just .207/.295/.400 with 13 homers, 34 RBI and 32 runs scored in 270 at-bats for Miami this season. He can be dropped in redraft leagues.
Miami Marlins outfielder Jorge Soler (back) was removed from Friday's game early against the Pittsburgh Pirates when his back stiffened up, according to manager Don Mattingly. "We'll get some testing done and see where we're at," Mattingly said. Soler went 1-for-3 with a run scored and a strikeout before leaving the game. For now, fantasy managers should consider him day-to-day, but don't be surprised if he's not in the starting lineup on Saturday. If Soler is forced to miss time or go on the injured list, Bryan De La Cruz would likely be the primary beneficiary of extra playing time. Soler is hitting just .207 on the year with a .295 on-base percentage, but he does have 13 home runs and 34 RBI in 270 at-bats.
The Miami Marlins placed infielder Jon Berti (groin) on the injured list with a left groin strain on Friday and reinstated outfielder Jorge Soler (pelvis) from the injured list in a corresponding move. The Marlins also optioned Daniel Castano to the minors and recalled pitcher Cody Poteet. Berti suffered a mild groin strain in Thursday's game, but he'll head to the IL before next week's All-Star break. The 32-year-old, who leads baseball with 28 stolen bases, can't return until July 25, at the earliest. Berti needs to be stashed for his speed in all fantasy leagues. Soler is back in left field and is batting cleanup on Friday against Philadelphia Phillies right-hander Kyle Gibson. Soler returns to a .217/.306/.421 slash line with 13 home runs, 34 RBI and 31 runs scored this season.
Jorge Soler was a letdown in 2020 for those who were expecting an encore to his breakout 2019 season. He exploded two years ago when he slashed .265/.354/.569 with an AL-best 48 home runs and 117 RBI. His 2020 season was marred by a lingering oblique strain that required two trips to the injured list and forced him to miss 17 games. He finished the year with a .228 batting average and .768 OPS to go along with eight HRs and 24 RBI. We can throw out most of 2020 due to the nagging oblique issue that took away nearly a third of his season. However, we can hang our hats on his Statcast profile, which looked strikingly similar to his banner 2019 season. Soler's Exit Velocity (92.5) and Hard Hit rate (51.1%) were both in the top seven percent of the league for the second consecutive year. His 18.9 % Barrel rate was in the 99th percentile as well after ranking in the top two percent in 2019. Soler's power is real but so was his 34.5 K%. He's also had issues staying healthy throughout his career so that needs to be considered. Despite injury risk and strikeout concerns, Soler should be locked in as the cleanup hitter for the Royals. 40 to 45 home run upside is well worth his current ADP of 146.
