Royals' Jorge Soler: Unlikely to return this season
Soler (toe) returned from his minor-league rehab assignment Sunday and has been shut down from baseball activities, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.
Soler started the rehab assignment at Triple-A Omaha last Monday but recently suffered a setback, jeopardizing his potential return this season. The Royals were already planning to utilize the 28-year-old exclusively as a designated hitter upon his return, and it would make little sense to rush him back if there is any concern whatsoever. Soler hasn't played a major-league game since mid-June, and he seems unlikely to return in September.
