Royals' Jorge Soler: Another homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run Thursday against the White Sox.

Soler took Ross Detwiler deep in the third inning to record his 26th homer of the season. He's swung a hot bat since the All-Star break, recording four multi-hit efforts and three home runs in seven starts. Soler is now hitting .248/.319/.518 across 404 plate appearances for the season.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Slugs 24th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 2-for-4 with a double, a home run, two runs scored and two RBI in Friday's 8-5 win over the Tigers.

The 27-year-old capped the scoring on the night with a solo shot in the eighth inning, his 24th homer of the year. Soler has hit safely in eight of his last nine games, slashing .364/.432/.697 over that stretch, but his overall .243/.310/.509 line on the season remains fairly lackluster.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Mashes 23rd homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 2-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Tuesday's 9-5 loss to Cleveland.

It's his second homer in three games and 23rd of the season -- an impressive number for a player whose career high was 12 coming into 2019. Soler's .238/.305/.506 slash line does limit his fantasy appeal, but the 27-year-old is finally starting to cash in on the promise he showed as a Cubs prospect.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Breaks out of slump with homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and a walk Sunday in the Royals' 7-6 win over the Blue Jays.

Soler's fifth-inning solo shot off Nick Kingham ended a frustrating stretch for the slugger, who had gone 1-for-27 with 13 strikeouts over the preceding seven games. The slump has resulted in Soler's season average plunging to .233, but that's a fair price for fantasy managers to pay in light of the career-best power production the 27-year-old has supplied. The home run was his 22nd of the season, exceeding his previous career high by 10 with 78 games left to play. He'll be back in the lineup for Monday's series finale as the Royals' designated hitter and No. 5 batter, per Joel Goldberg of FOX Sports Kansas City.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Swats 21st homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 1-for-3 with a walk, a solo home run and a second run scored in Friday's 8-7 loss to the Twins.

The 27-year-old is dialed in at the plate right now. Soler has gone yard four times in the last seven games and, perhaps more impressively, drawn a walk in every one of those contests, giving him a .292/.452/.792 slash line during that stretch. On the season, he's already set new career highs with 21 homers and 53 RBI through 76 games, putting Soler on pace for his first 100-RBI campaign.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Slugs 20th home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk in a victory over the Mariners on Tuesday.

Soler took Yusei Kikuchi deep to center in the third inning for his sixth home run in June and third in the last four games. The 27-year-old is having a breakout season in his first opportunity as a full-time starter, already having established career highs in home runs (20) and RBI (52). He is slashing .245/.304/.527 on the season.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Blasts 19th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk to help the Royals to a 6-4 victory over the Mariners on Monday.

The Royals were trailing 4-3 in the eighth inning but Soler gave them the lead back for good with a two-run blast off Anthony Bass for his 19th long ball of the season. The 27-year-old is hitting just .245, but he's provided solid power returns for the Royals so far this season, as he's clubbed 17 doubles in addition to the 19 homers to leave him with a .520 slugging percentage through 269 at-bats.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Doubles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 2-for-5 with a double and two RBI overall in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Tigers.

Soler had yet another solid night at the plate, accounting for both of the Royals' runs in a tightly contested matchup. The 27-year-old is slashing .244/.295/.512 with a team-leading 17 doubles, 17 home runs and 47 RBI to go with 32 runs scored.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Knocks third homer of June
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk and two runs scored in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the White Sox.

The 27-year-old went deep against White Sox starter Reynaldo Lopez and later scored a run in the ninth. Soler is up to 17 homers and 44 RBI in 2019 as he finally seems to be tapping into the power he was expected to have when he was a prospect.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Slugs 16th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 2-for-5 with a home run and two RBI on Thursday against the Red Sox.

Soler took Marcus Walden deep in the fifth inning to record his 16th homer of the season. One of the more surprising sources of power early on, Soler shows no signs of slowing, mashing five homers in his last 11 games. While he's getting base at just a .291 clip, he ranks among the top-10 in the American League in both homers and RBI through 62 games.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler smacked a three-run shot off starter Mike Minor in the sixth inning to give the Royals the lead for good. The 27-year-old has been a solid source of power this year, which also comes with a high strikeout rate. He's batting .245/.296/.505 with 14 home runs, 39 RBI, 27 runs scored and 69 strikeouts through 56 games.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Slugs 13th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in Wednesday's 8-7 loss to the White Sox.

His two-run shot started a four-run rally in the sixth inning and helped chase Reynaldo Lopez from the game, although the Royals' comeback attempt fell short. Soler now has three homers in the last eight games but only four other hits, sinking his slash line on the year down to .245/.296/.495 with 13 home runs and 36 RBI in 55 contests.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Records three-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Cardinals.

Soler took Michael Wacha deep in the third inning to record his 11th home run of the season. He's been relatively quiet at the plate of late, recording eight hits in his past 37 at-bats with four extra-base knocks and nine strikeouts. Still, he's shown plenty of pop in the early going, slugging .495 across 201 plate appearances.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Three-hit performance in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles, two RBI and a run Tuesday in the Royals' 11-5 win over the Rangers.

Soler and leadoff man Whit Merrifield paced the Royals with three hits apiece as they chased Texas starter Shelby Miller from the game in the second inning. The two doubles give Soler 24 extra-base hits on the campaign, putting him in a tie for 11th place among all MLB hitters.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Reaches base three times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and two walks in a 5-1 victory against the Phillies on Friday.

The 27-year-old has been feast or famine early this season. While he does have 10 home runs, which is already his most in three years and only two shy of his previous career high, Soler also leads the league with 53 strikeouts. His two free passes Friday are very rare for the free-swinging Soler, and as a result, he only has a .315 on-base percentage. However, behind the homers, he does own a .531 slugging percentage. He is also hitting .259 with 25 RBI and 20 runs in 147 at-bats.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk and two runs Tuesday in the Royals' 12-2 win over the Astros.

Soler was one of three Royals to leave the yard, with his second-inning solo shot getting the scoring started on the night. The 26-year-old looks locked in at the plate, as he's gone 12-for-29 with five extra-base knocks over his last seven starts.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Cranks eighth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 3-for-3 with a solo homer and a sacrifice fly in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Tigers.

After putting the Royals on the board in the fourth inning, Soler took Shane Greene deep in the ninth frame to bring Kansas City within one, though that's ultimately where things would end. Soler's three-hit effort Friday raised his average to .242, which marks the highest it has been since April 11.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Collects two RBI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 2-for-4 with two RBI, a run scored and a double in Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Rays.

Soler went 0-for-3 in Game 1 but came alive early in Game 2, as he did all his damage through the first three innings. The 27-year-old has endured a slow start to the season and is slashing .231/.283/.479 with seven home runs and 19 RBI in 31 games.

April 23, 2019 12:12 AM
Royals' Jorge Soler: Slugs sixth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
