8/18 Soler power
Jorge Soler seems bigger than the 6-foot-3, 205 pounds he’s listed at. One other thing about the Cuban outfielder, who is playing for Class A Peoria: he isn’t overmatched in the Minors. In his sixth game for the Chiefs on Saturday night in Appleton, Wis., he went 4-for-5 with a solo home run, an RBI double, and two singles to beat Wisconsin, 9-2. He’s now batting .391. The home run was impressive as he hit an 0-2 pitch about 400 feet to center. I’ll have more on Soler on Sunday.
