I do not get why the Cubs are eagerly anticipating George`s return to the major league team. (That`s what Maddon calls him.) Soler is something like 2 for 21 with at least nine punch-outs in his minor league rehab stint. Can someone help me with this?

Minor league rehab stats, like Spring Training stats, are mostly useless. The whole point of a rehab assignment is for the player to get their timing back and get back to being used to playing on consecutive days. I don’t know what moves they’ll make to get Soler and Coghlan back, as Contreras and Szczur are both playing well enough to stick around and their bullpen seems to be where they want it for now. So maybe there’s another trade on the horizon? Stay tuned…
