Prospect Soler out after straining other hamstring

CHICAGO -- Cubs prospect Jorge Soler is sidelined again this season, this time with a right hamstring strain.

Soler, who had a left hamstring strain in Spring Training, was examined by Cubs doctors in Chicago. The outfielder, who is playing for Double-A Tennessee, is now on a new program to promote better muscular balance, according to Cubs player development director Jason McLeod.

Soler will rehab at the Cubs' facility in Mesa, Ariz., and then rejoin the Tennessee team.

The Cuban outfielder has played just seven games, batting .333 (8-for-24) with seven doubles and seven RBIs.
