Top prospect Soler likely to start at Kane County
MESA, Ariz. – The Cubs got their first look at Jorge Soler during Friday’s batting practice at Fitch Park and manager Dale Sveum came away impressed.
“He kind of reminds me of a right-handed Cliff Floyd the way he takes [batting practice],” Sveum said. “He backspins balls pretty good. … The ball comes off his bat like you want a ball to come off a bat if you’re a manager. I’m really, really interested to watch him on the field.”
Sveum said there’s no reason to put him on a fast track to the big leagues.
