Thursday September 17th, 2015

The Chicago Cubs activated right fielder Jorge Soler off the 15-day disabled list, the team announced Thursday.

Soler, 23, is available to play Thursday afternoon against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Soler was placed on the disabled list on Aug. 24 with a left oblique injury. The Cuba-native went 3-for-13 in four rehab games with Single A Mrytle Beach. 

In his second season with Chicago, Soler is hitting .265 with seven home runs, 18 doubles and 42 RBIs through 90 games.

The Cubs are in third place in the NL Central with a 84–61 record, and are currently in possession of the second Wild Card spot.
