Cubs prospect Jorge Soler will be suspended for bat wielding incident

Jorge Soler, an outfielder with the Cubs' High-A Daytona affiliate, will be suspended for charging the opposing dugout and wielding his bat in a threatening manner, reports CBS Sports. The incident occurred in a game with High-A Clearwater, a Phillies affiliate.

From the CBS Report:

Soler's angry advance was the result of his getting tangled up with the Clearwater second baseman while running the bases earlier in the game.

According to Giants beat writer Henry Schulman, Clearwater players had made comments about Soler's family:
