Scouting Book‘s Report on Jorge Soler:
A tall and lanky teenager who arrived in the Dominican Republic in the winter of 2011, outfielder Jorge Soler is one of the most promising Cuban prospects in baseball today. He’s already shown off his tools in Dominican Republic, and while he looks like a centerfielder right now, his size and young age make it quite possible he’ll be a corner fielder when he finishes growing, especially if his loopy power swing develops as expected. He’s already showing the signs of that very-likely plus power, and his very strong arm is certainly real. His contact skills and lack of patience at the plate, though, are equally clear indicators that he’s still a very rough gem.
One bonus for his future MLB home: the youngster has an electric personality already in his toolbox, which means he could be a real poster boy come 2015 or so.

Ken Rosenthal compares Soler’s power with Miami Marlins outfielder Mike Stanton.
Scouts say that Soler, a 6-foot-3, 205-pound right-handed hitter, possesses power comparable to that of a player with a similar build, Marlins right fielder Mike Stanton. Soler does not run as well as Stanton, however, and ultimately could end up at first base. Click here to read more of Rosenthal’s Article.
