6/27 Jorge Soler update

Top prospect Jorge Soler has been limited to 10 games in the Minor Leagues this season, but the Cubs feel they may have found a solution to the outfielder’s leg problems. Soler, who hit a home run Thursday playing for the Arizona Rookie League team, underwent a full body assessment that included a study of his anatomy and biomechanics. He has been limited because of hamstring issues in both legs, and the problem may be related to his posture and the muscle distribution on his body.

Theo Epstein said the injuries have been more of a “freak” thing and that the medical staff did a thorough evaluation of Soler.

Soler began the season at Double-A Tennessee but hurt his hamstring in his first game. In three games with the Rookie League team, he’s 5-for-10. The plan is to get the outfielder back with the Smokies this year, Epstein said.
