Found June 27, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
PLAYERS: Jorge Soler
TEAMS: Chicago Cubs
Highly-regarded Chicago Cubs prospect Jorge Soler has suffered a stress fracture in his left tibia, an injury that will require him to wear a walking boot for four to six weeks, according to Carrie Muskat of MLB.com. #Cubs prospect Jorge Soler has stress fracture in left shin. Will be in walking boot 4-6 weeks. No Futures Game — Carrie Muskat (@CarrieMuskat) June 27, 2013 Muskat adds that Soler suffered the injury when he fouled a ball off his leg. At this point, the Cubs are not sure whether or not the stress fracture will sideline the outfielder for the remainder of the season. Soler was recently selected to participate in the Future's Game, but that will obviously not happen as a result of the injury. He's been out since June 13, the game when he fouled a ball off his leg. Initially Chicago believed it was something that would heal itself with time, allowing Soler to be activated from the disabled list when eligible. However, the stress fracture was diagnosed during an examination by team doctors on Wednesday. After signing a lucrative contract with the Cubs and playing well over 34 games last season, Soler entered the season considered a top-50 prospect by Baseball America and MLB.com. Prior to his leg injury, the 21-year-old hit .281/.343/.467 with 13 doubles and eight home runs for Chicago's High-A affiliate. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?

On Matt Garza’s Last Three Starts

The Cubs didn’t have hearty expectations entering the year, but coming on the heels of some nice acquisitions, it wasn’t inconceivable that they would hang around and make some noise in the pennant race. And in a just world, perhaps they would have. They have played better than their record all season, and in fact still carry just a -12 run differential into this weekend’s...
