Soler, 23, was placed on the disabled list on Aug. 24 with a left oblique strain and saw action in four rehab games with Single-A Myrtle Beach as part of his return (3-for-13, .231, 2 2B, 3 BB, 2 R, 1 RBI). He is batting .265 with 18 doubles, one triple, seven home runs and 42 RBI in 90 games with the Cubs this season.
