Soler went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's 6-3 loss to the Rays. After a brutal 0-for-5, five-strikeout game Sunday. Soler bounced back with his sixth homer of the year. The 27-year-old's .227/.284/.489 slash line likely won't improve substantially until he solves his contact woes -- his 37.9 percent K-rate is more than 10 points worse than last year's performance.
Soler went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and two strikeouts in a 6-1 victory against the Yankees on Thursday. He's still striking out more than 40 percent of the time, but Soler also has 10 extra-base hits, including five homers in 72 at-bats. So while the .236 batting average is a bit low, Soler has posted 14 RBI and eight runs with a .514 slugging percentage this season.
Soler is on the bench for the first time this season Monday against the White Sox. Soler has started nine games as a designated hitter and a further six in right field. Lucas Duda will fill the former position Monday, with Chris Owings in right field.
Soler went 1-for-4 with a home run and walk in a 9-8 victory against the Indians on Sunday. The 27-year-old has been an all-or-nothing guy in 2019. He's always struggled with contact, but Soler leads the league with 24 strikeouts early this season. However, he also has nine extra-base hits, including four homers. Owners would like to see Soler make more contact, as he is hitting just .217, but he does possess a .500 slugging percentage with 13 RBI and seven runs in 60 at-bats.
Soler went 2-for-5 with a home run, a double, three RBI and two runs scored Thursday against Seattle. Soler launched a two-run homer to center in the third inning and doubled home a run in the seventh, but the Royals would fall in extra innings, 7-6. The 27-year-old has put on a power display at the dish over his previous two contests, leaving the yard in both games while driving in five runs.
