6/27 Jorge Soler – UPDATED
Cubs prospect Jorge Soler has a stress fracture of his left tibia, and will be sidelined four to six weeks. Soler apparently fouled a ball off his leg in Spring Training, and the injury flared up. He will have to wear a walking boot, and will go to Mesa, Ariz., to rehab.
Theo Epstein says they are hopeful Soler can return to games this year, and want to have him play in the Arizona Fall League.
“If he gets back and plays again this year and can play in the Fall League, it should make up for [missed time],” Epstein said of Soler.
