I might be in the minority, but I don't see Soler making an All-Star team in his Cubs career.
For one, I'm not sure what exactly he will amount to. Does he have the potential to be there every year? Probably. But I'm just not buying that he will get there.
He's too young and inexperienced with so few people outside of the front office having any idea of what he has to bring.
This is without mentioning Bryce Harper, who surely has a permanent lock on a spot for the next 10+ years. And with Almora, Soler might not even be the best outfielder on his own team.
Soler may cash in on a bigger deal after this one, and perhaps make an All-Star game then. But it won't be in a Cubs uniform.
But hand a 20-year-old $30 million, and I imagine that work ethic seems like less of a priority. (But just in case, someone give me $30 million and I'll let you know if it does or not.)
