Royals' Jorge Soler: Dealt to Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler was traded to the Royals on Wednesday in exchange for Wade Davis, MLB.com's Jeffrey Flanagan reports.

Of the Cubs' young hitters, Soler was the most likely to be moved this winter, as he would have struggled to see the field, and may have been confined to a role as a lefty-mashing bench bat, given the team's other options. In Kansas City, however, he figures to be the everyday right fielder, and could bat as high as fourth or fifth in the lineup. He has a career .258/.328/.434 slash line and 27.6 percent strikeout rate, but there is still considerable room for growth entering his age-25 season. He has plus power and could hit 25-plus homers if he can stay healthy, although the transition to the American League could lead to a bit of a learning curve initially.

Cubs' Jorge Soler: Will be dealt to Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler will be traded to the Royals on Wednesday in exchange for Wade Davis, provided both players pass their physicals, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

Due to the Cubs' surplus of outfield bats, Soler wouldn't have had an everyday role had he remained with the team to begin 2017, but the move to the Royals will significantly improve his outlook. Soler should be the leading candidate to play regularly in right field, with Lorenzo Cain shifting over to center field to clear room for him. While Soler hasn't lived up to expectations through his first three MLB seasons, he's still just 24 years old and carries plenty of pop in his bat. The opportunity to see more consistent at-bats with the Royals should give him his best chance to date to unlock some of his immense talent.

Cubs' Jorge Soler: Returns for regular season finale
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Soler (side) will rejoin the lineup for the regular season finale Sunday against the Reds.

Soler had been sidelined for the past seven games because of the side injury, but he was expected to return to action Sunday. That's indeed the case, as he will man left field, pushing Kris Bryant back to third base and Javier Baez to the bench.

Cubs' Jorge Soler: Likely to return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler (side) will likely return to action Sunday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Soler has started just one game since Sept. 16 due to the soreness in his side, but it appears he will be able to take the field once more before the regular season ends.

Cubs' Jorge Soler: May be ready for postseason
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Manager Joe Maddon hopes Soler (side) can participate in batting practice during Chicago's weekend series with the Reds before working through a simulated game Tuesday, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

Soler likely isn't going to be a factor in the waning days of the 2016 fantasy season but may have at least a platoon role in the playoffs. Daily fantasy competitors for October ball may find a cheap stick to use against lefty pitchers.
