    Cubs No. 3 prospect Jorge Soler has a stress fracture of his left tibia, and will be sidelined four to six weeks, the team announced Thursday. Soler was examined in Chicago by team doctors Wednesday, which led to the discovery of the stress fracture. Soler is hitting .281 with eight home runs on the season. It's been a rough season for Soler, who was suspended five games and fined an undisclosed amount for an incident in April in which he approached the opposing team's dugout wielding a bat. The Cubs are not saying he's done for the season, and they are hopeful he can return at the end of the Minor League season. "To lose two months of development and this is his first year playing every day and now you miss out on the first season of playing 142 games every day it's unfortunate.
