While you may feel a slight instinct to be bummed at being deprived of your Jorge Soler fix this weekend, you’ll just have to get over it. Because this is swell news: Soler will be heading to Miami for the weekend so that he can be there when his first child is born, and that is awesome.
Congrats to Soler and the mother of his child, and hopefully all goes smoothly in their transition to a new life. Soler is expected to return to the team on Monday.
If Soler is having a boy, here’s hoping the Cubs are ready with a 35-year contract offer.
