Two-Strike Approach: Soler Power

6

Cat Garcia

Kansas City needs power and Jorge Soler needs playing time, so it's a perfect match.

The truth about Jorge Soler’s future with the Cubs was written on the proverbial wall in 2016. Chicago was so rich in talent and such a strong winning machine that Soler struggled to stand out, but a 24-year-old hitting .238/.333/.436 shouldn't be collecting dust on the bench.

Soler would have been a perfectly adequate starter on most other teams and his offseason trade to the Royals in exchange for star reliever Wade Davis makes sense for both sides. The Royals essentially gave up one year of a great closer in exchange for a long-term offensive talent with the potential to be their most prolific power hitter. Even if Soler fails to reach the top of his high ceiling, he should be an asset in Kansas City right away.

Baseball's most prepared first-base coach talks about the details that can change a scouting report, and ignoring the sheet of paper that comes from upstairs.

Few men embody the ethos of the defending champion Kansas City Royals better than first-base coach Rusty Kuntz. The long-time coach is the maestro behind Kansas City's running game and its outfield defense—previously overlooked qualities that have helped propel the Royals to consecutive pennants and a World Series title.

The Royals aren't going to the postseason this year, so they should use the next two months to help the 2017 club.

Danny Salazar is losing heat, and Max Kepler takes advantage. Meanwhile, Danny Duffy and Kyle Hendricks turn in signature starts.

The Monday Takeaway
The Indians had themselves a mighty fine trade deadline, even after Jonathan Lucroy nixed his ticket to Cleveland. Andrew Miller should fortify the bullpen and Brandon Guyer figures to provide a nice boost to the outfield. With a relatively stable and healthy rotation, general manager Mike Chernoff was able to use his myriad trade chits to patch other roster holes while steering clear of the extreme sellers’ market for starting pitchers.

Then the deadline passed, and game time came around for the Tribe’s August opener against the Twins, and… uh oh.
