Chicago Cubs prospect Jorge Soler went 0-for-3 in his American professional baseball debut with the Arizona League Cubs on Thursday night. Playing DH, Soler grounded out in his first two at-bats and lined into a double play in his final chance. He was replaced by pinch-hitter Ben Carhart in the bottom of the eighth inning.

The Cubs signed Soler, a native of Cuba, to a nine-year, $30 million deal earlier this summer. The 20-year-old outfielder is considered one of the building blocks of Theo Epstein's effort to reshape the farm system.
