The Chicago Cubs placed outfielder Jorge Soler on the 15-day disabled list on Aug. 24 with a left oblique injury, but he is finally available to play, reported Mark Grote of WBBM Chicago Cubs Radio Network on Thursday.
Fred B. Mitchell of the Chicago Tribune originally reported on Aug. 24 that Soler could be out of action for at least a month. At the time, the Cubs confirmed they had called up Tommy La Stella to play second base so Chris Coghlan could be moved to right field, per Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune.
Soler, 23, is hitting .265 on the year with seven home runs, 42 RBI and 35 runs scored. He's been a vital part of Chicago's reinvigorated lineup. The Cubs are currently battling for a postseason spot in the stacked National League Central.
