Jorge Soler has standard mixed league value
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

The Cubs' callup of Jorge Soler has created instant Fantasy buzz, as he has become one of the five most-added outfielders in CBSSports.com leagues. He now boasts a 45 percent ownership rate, and it could -- and should -- rise even higher.

After missing much of the season's first half with a hamstring injury, Soler took both Double-A and Triple-A by storm, slugging .862 at the former level and .618 at the latter. In terms of sheer power, he may fall a little short of the standard set by teammate Javier Baez, but not by much. Soler should certainly demonstrate better contact skills than Baez and hit for a much higher average, at least in the .260s.

With Baez being shortstop-eligible, it's hardly a fair comparison, but it's completely fair to compare Soler with White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia, who has been doing some nice work just across town. Garcia may not be able to sustain the power surge he has produced since returning from the disabled list, but I would have much more confidence in Soler putting up something close to the .483 slugging percentage Garcia currently owns over the rest of this season. Soler can also draw walks, so he could outdo Garcia in on-base percentage, even though I expect Garcia to post the higher batting average.

Because Garcia has more batting average upside and something of a major league track record, limited as it is, I have him ranked just ahead of Soler in both Head-to-Head and Rotisserie formats. That places Soler among the top 50 outfielders in both formats. While that clearly makes him viable in 12-team mixed Roto leagues, it leaves him as more of a borderline option in 12-team mixed Head-to-Head leagues. Maybe he doesn't make the cut for one of your three outfielder spots in those formats, but you could do worse in filling out your utility slot.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cubs rookie infielder Javier Baez hit a no-doubter off Mets closer Jenrry Mejia in the ninth inning of Monday's game, securing a 4-1 win for Chicago with a two-run homer. It was his fifth home run in his 60th career at-bat.

With the home run, Baez joined Jason Kipnis as the only players in the last 100 years to hit at least five home runs as a second baseman in their first 14 career games, according to Baseball-Reference.com.

Javier Baez slugs fourth home run Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cubs second baseman Javier Baez went 2 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 4-2 win over the Brewers Wednesday.

Baez has managed to be productive for the Cubs in the early-going despite an ugly 13:0 K:BB ratio. Six of his 11 hits are for extra bases, including four home runs. He owns a .268/.268/.610 line in 41 at-bats.
