Soler (pelvis) is taking part in mobility and core-strengthening work at the Marlins' spring training facility in Jupiter, Fla. this week, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. While it's encouraging that Soler is not being shut down from activity entirely after he landed on the 10-day injured list Friday with bilateral pelvis inflammation, he may have to ramp up the intensity of his workouts in the next day or two to have a realistic chance at being activated during the upcoming weekend. Bryan De La Cruz should continue to handle a full-time role in the Miami outfield for however long Soler is on the shelf.
Soler will be placed on the 10-day injured list prior to Friday's contest against the Nationals with bilateral pelvis inflammation, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Soler was a late scratch from Wednesday's game versus the Cardinals due to back discomfort, but a different injury will be attributed to his placement on the IL. The outfielder had been playing through the injury recently, which suggests his absence could be limited to just the 10 days. A corresponding move will likely be made later Friday.
Soler was scratched from Wednesday's lineup against the Cardinals due to back discomfort, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. Soler was slated to start in left field and bat third, but he was removed from the lineup shortly before first pitch. The 30-year-old has apparently played through the back issue of late, and he'll head to the bench Wednesday ahead of Miami's scheduled day off Thursday. Bryan De La Cruz will man left field in his place.
Soler is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mets, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Soler started the past six games and had a hit in all but one of those contests, but he failed to make much of an impact with a .617 OPS. Avisail Garcia is also sitting Sunday while Jon Berti and Bryan De La Cruz start in the corner outfield spots.
Soler went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run Wednesday against the Rockies. Soler went yard back-to-back with Jazz Chisholm in the seventh inning to record his 13th home run of the season. It was Soler's first long ball since June 7 -- a span of 11 starts during which he hit just .214 with one RBI and four runs scored. For the season, Soler has maintained a .221/.315/.443 slash line with 31 RBI and 31 runs scored across 268 plate appearances.
