What Happened Jorge Soler?

Jorge Soler

As of September 1, Soler has at least one extra-base hit in each of his first five major league games, becoming the third player in the previous century to accomplish this feat in the majors.

Only one other player in Cubs history, Pedro Soler, had more than ten RBIs in his first seven games in the majors.

When Soler was sidelined by an ankle injury, he was the Cubs’ starting right fielder for the entire 2015 season. Having spent some time in rehab, he returned to the starting lineup on July 5.

At the conclusion of the regular season, his batting average stood at.268 with 15 home runs and 67 RBI.

In his postseason debut in 2015, Soler walked in the ninth inning of Game 1 of the Division Series as a pinch-hitter and went on to smash a double, a two-run home drive to straightaway center, and two more walks in Game 2, and a home run, a single, and two more walks in Game 3 of that series.

Setting a new high. As part of a nine-hit streak in the postseason, Soler drew five walks and blasted two home runs, as well as two doubles and one single.

Against the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 4, Soler assisted on Tony Cruz’s game-ending putout at home plate that stopped the Cardinals’ sixth-inning rally.

It took the Cubs four games to beat the Cardinals and progress to the National League Championship Series. The Cubs triumphed 6–4.
