As Archi Zuber wrote last night, Cubs prospect Jorge Soler was ejected from a High-A game with the Daytona Cubs after charging the Clearwater Threshers’ dugout with a bat. Soler and the Chicago Cubs’ brass were awaiting word on how long the 21-year old would be suspended for. Official word is five games for Soler.

Reports out of Chicago indicated that Soler expressed a great deal of remorse over his Wednesday night antics, and that he was prepared to accept whatever punishment he was handed. Five games isn’t so bad, but hopefully this is just an isolated incident for the rising star.
