OF Jorge Soler remains without a timetable to return from the injured list.
Soler continues to be bothered by an oblique injury as he works at the alternate site, per Royals manager Mike Matheny. He remains without a timetable to return to action. With one week left in the season, the Royals could be careful with Soler and shut him down for the season. The 28-year-old OF remains day-to-day.
Jorge Soler (oblique) took live at-bats on Thursday.
Manager Mike Matheny said that Soler responded well and will get some more work in on Friday. He has a chance to return for the final week of the year.
The Royals placed Jorge Soler on the 10-day IL with a right oblique strain.
It was reported on Monday that Soler could wind up avoiding the injured list, but the Royals want to play things safe. Soler didn't reach his 2019 heights this summer, batting .235 with eight homers and a .787 OPS in 39 games. This could very well end his season.
Jorge Soler, who's missed action on Sunday and Monday due to a sore oblique, is not an IL candidate as of now, per manager Mike Matheny.
Matheny mentioned that the Royals' trainers saw some improvement in Soler on Sunday and that they haven't discussed an IL stint. It's more of a day-to-day issue but oblique injuries have a tendency to linger. The 28-year old was removed from Saturday’s game against the White Sox when the injury popped up. Ryan McBroom has been filling in at DH in his place.
