Royals' Jorge Soler: Strikeout rate up in ST
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler hit .172/.250/.448 with two home runs and a 14:3 K:BB in 32 plate appearances this spring.

Soler's 43.8 percent strikeout rate is pretty alarming, but this was a small sample and his strikeout rate has been below 27 percent in each of the last two big-league seasons. His place in the middle of Kansas City's lineup will be safe whenever the 2020 season gets underway.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Reaches deal with Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler agreed to a one-year, $7.3 million contract with the Royals on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

Soler surprised many by cranking 48 homers while driving in 117 RBI over 162 contests during his first full season of big-league action. He's expected to be a key bat in the Royals lineup during the 2020 campaign.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Launches 48th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a victory over the Twins on Sunday.

Soler put the Royals on the board in the first inning with a solo shot to left field. The 27-year-old was one of the few bright spots for the Royals this season, breaking out to lead the American League with 48 home runs and tying for second with 117 RBI while slashing .265/.354/.569 in 162 games.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Claims AL homer lead
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 2-for-3 with two homers and three RBI in Saturday's game against the Twins.

Solo hit a solo shot in the first inning and a two-run homer in the seventh, accounting for all his team's runs in their 4-3 loss. The homers were Soler's 46th and 47th of the season, breaking a tie with Mike Trout (foot) for the American League lead. With Trout shut down for the season and the next closest hitters in the AL (Alex Bregman and Nelson Cruz) sitting on 41 homers, Soler's crown looks to be secure.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Scores twice in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 1-for-2 with two runs scored, a stolen base and two walks in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Twins.

Soler showed plate discipline, getting aboard with a walk in the third inning and promptly working a double steal with speedster Adalberto Mondesi. Both of Soler's runs came thanks to Alex Gordon's bat via a sixth-inning double and a groundout in the eighth. Soler is up to three steals this year, adding to his 45 homers, 110 RBI and 88 runs scored in 155 games.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Ties Trout for AL homer lead
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and an additional run Monday in the Royals' 6-5 win over the Athletics.

Soler has already secured the Kansas City franchise home-run record and now looks like the overwhelming frontrunner for the American League homer crown. His fourth-inning blast off Tanner Roark was Soler's 45th of the season, tying him with the Mike Trout (foot) for the league lead. After Trout and Soler, Nelson Cruz and Gleyber Torres rank a distant second with 37 long balls.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Continues homer barrage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored Thursday against the White Sox.

Soler took Lucas Giolito deep in the first inning to record his 44th home run of the season. Only Mike Trout and Pete Alonso have hit more long balls than him on the season, and he's shown no signs of slowing down by smacking six home runs in his last nine starts. Soler has maintained an impressive .257/.348/.557 line across 614 plate appearances.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Goes deep twice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 4-for-5 with a double, two home runs and four RBI in Wednesday's 8-6 win over the White Sox.

The 27-year-old continues to eclipse his own franchise record for homers in a season with every new blast -- Soler now has 43, to go with his own personal bests of 106 RBI and an .899 OPS. With 28 doubles and 16 games left on the schedule, he also has an outside shot at matching or breaking another Royals record -- Hal McRae's 86 extra-base hits, set in 1977.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Smashes 41st homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 2-for-3 with a home run, two runs and two walks during a 7-2 victory over the Marlins on Saturday.

The outfielder capped off the Royals comeback with a solo homer in the ninth inning to provide additional insurance. Soler's power has been incredible this season, as he has more homers this year than he did in his previous five MLB seasons combined. He is batting .253, but behind 41 home runs he possesses a .291 ISO. Soler also has 102 RBI, 80 runs and two steals in 517 at-bats.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Cranks 40th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's win over the Tigers.

After setting the franchise homer record a night ago, Soler cranked out yet another long ball, reaching the 40-homer mark for the first time in his career. The 27-year-old outfielder is now batting .255/.347/.545 on the season with 101 RBI.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 3-for-3 with a three-run homer, a stolen base and a walk in Tuesday's win over Detroit.

Soler crushed a 431-foot long ball with two men on base in the third inning to give the Royals an early lead. The home run was Soler's 39th of the season to establish the franchise single-season record. The 27-year-old also became the first Royal since Eric Hosmer in 2016 to reach the 100-RBI mark.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Launches 38th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in Friday's 14-2 loss to the Orioles.

He gave the Royals a brief lead in the first inning with his second long ball in as many nights, but the game was all O's after that. Soler is slashing .253/.344/.540 on the year with 38 homers -- matching his career total coming into 2019 -- and 97 RBI.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Rips two-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 1-for-5 with two runs scored and three RBI on Thursday against the Athletics.

Soler took Chris Bassitt deep in the first inning to get the Royals ahead. It was his 37th homer of the season and ninth of August. It's been an impressive breakout campaign for Soler, as he's currently slashing .251/.343/.532 across 562 plate appearances.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Ends power drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run Sunday in the Royals' 9-8 win over the Indians in 10 innings.

It's probably premature to say that Soler busted out of his cold spell on a day in which he still struck out three times, but he at least brought an end to his 10-game streak without a home run, his longest of the season. The 437-foot blast off Nick Wittgren was Soler's 36th of the campaign, leaving him just two shy of matching Mike Moustakas' franchise record.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Stuck in cold spell
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 0-for-4 with a walk and an RBI in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Indians.

After his third straight hitless outing, Soler has now gone 4-for-30 with 11 strikeouts in 10 games since turning in his second two-homer performance of August. The cold stretch has sunk Soler's season-long average to .251, but fantasy managers can live with his lack of impact in that category if he can rediscover his power stroke in the near future. He'll slot in as the Royals' No. 2 batter and designated hitter in Sunday's series finale, per Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Blasts two home runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 3-for-3 with two home runs, a double and five RBI in a 10-2 win over the Tigers on Sunday.

Soler hit a two-run shot in the third inning and added another solo homer in the eighth inning. The 27-year-old homered four times in the final three games of the series and is three away from the Royals franchise record. Soler is hitting .259/.344/.555 with 35 home runs through 120 games this season.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Two more homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 2-for-2 with two home runs, four RBI and two walks Tuesday against the Red Sox.

Soler took Andrew Cashner deep on two occasions, once in the fourth inning followed by another shot in the sixth frame. He now has 31 homers on the campaign, including four in his last nine games. He shows no signs of slowing down, and currently boasts a .253/.335/.530 line across 476 plate appearances.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Blasts home run No. 29
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk and an additional run Saturday in the Royals' 11-3 loss to the Twins.

Soler has been the star of the Royals' series in Minnesota thus far, collecting five hits and scoring four times between the first two games of the series. He'll look to keep rolling the finale Sunday, when he'll bat cleanup while manning right field.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Launches 28th homer

Soler went 2-for-4 with a solo homer, a walk and two runs scored in Sunday's 9-6 win over Cleveland.

Royals' Jorge Soler: Smashes 27th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
