Felix Doubront did nothing to help his cause for the 5th spot in the rotation as he played a huge role in blowing an 8-3 lead today. The Cubs went on to lose to the Angels 10-9 but the story today, as it is most days now, was how the Cubs got their runs, hooray prospects! It was the Kris Bryant, Jorge Soler, and Addison Russell show as the three headed monster put on an impressive display with the bats. First the powerful results, Kris Bryant went deep twice, two monster shots, he finished the day 3-for-4 with two dingers, a book rule double, three RBI, and three runs scored. Jorge Soler joined the fun as well going 2-for-3 with his own bomb, two RBI, and a run scored. Russell was super impressive all over the field, he finished 3-for-3 with a double, an RBI, a stolen base and a couple of slick plays in the field. The pitching wasn’t so great today as Jason Hammel was beat up in addition to Doubront.

Not a bad way to go out, eh? Jorge Soler took Taijuan Walker deep last night, then was pulled because he was getting called up by the Cubs, solid night. Pure power on display here, gets a fastball up, and destroys it, I can’t wait for Wednesday when Soler is expected to make his debut with the Cubs in Cinicnnati.
The next super prospect to get the call to the Majors is going to be Jorge Soler, especially if he continues the tear that he is on. Soler has been banged up for almost the last year and a half, but he has the look of someone that is back to 100%
Last night he had himself a huge game for Iowa, he went 2-for-3 with a double, his fifth Iowa home run, two walks, three RBI’s, and three runs scored. The transition from level to level for Soler has been impressive in that there really hasn’t been one. Seamless is a word that comes to mind, and because of this, I expect that Soler will be up with the big league club in right field on September first, if not sooner.
