Cubs outfield prospect Jorge Soler left last night’s game with a hamstring injury. Soler, playing with the Tennessee Smokies in Double-A, doubled in his only at-bat against Pensacola last night before leaving. He underwent an MRI on Friday and the Cubs placed him on the seven-day minor league disabled list, Smokies play-by-play broadcaster Mick Gillispie tweets.

Soler was rated the #45 overall prospect entering the season by Baseball Prospectus. They rated him fourth-best in the Cubs’ system behind Javier Baez, Kris Bryant, and Alberto Almora.

This is not the first time Soler has been injured. He suffered a fractured fibula in mid-June last season. The Cubs, who signed the Cuban to a nine-year, $30 million contract in 2012, hope he can stay relatively healthy and make his Major League debut some time in 2015.
