Jorge Soler Newsbeat

Royals believe Jorge Soler will bring a ‘presence’ to their lineup | The Kansas City Star

Well, that’s not good for the Royals.

The club’s analytics department liked Soler’s ability to get on base — his walk rate (11.7 percent) would have led the Royals in 2016. The club’s talent evaluators loved his raw power and an assortment of tools that once landed him among the top 20 prospects in baseball before the 2015 season.

Cubs near trade to acquire closer Wade Davis from Royals

Update 2:07 PM:

 

The Cubs moved to the verge of a deal for Royals closer Wade Davis Tuesday evening, although sources made clear that the trade is not complete and both teams still have to OK the medical information.

It was not immediately known exactly what the Cubs would give up in return for Davis, but a source told ESPN’s Jesse Rogers that if a trade is completed, it is expected to include Cubs outfielder Jorge Soler.
