ICYMI: Cubs Prospect Tries Threatening Opposing Team With Bat


If there were only video of this.

Chicago Cubs prize prospect Jorge Soler is in a bit of trouble this morning after appearing to lose control during a Florida State League minor league game Wednesday night.

Soler was ejected after running towards the Clearwater Threshers dugout--bat in hand, in the seventh inning of his team (Daytona Cubs) game. Teammates stopped him.

According to the Daytona Beach News-Journal, Soler got angry after the previous inning where he exchanged words with the Clearwater second baseman. The two were separated at that point.

Soler is a Cubs "Bonus Baby", a Cuban refugee who was signed to a 9-year, $30 million contract. And yeah, sure, he may not know any better.

But that doesn't excuse trying to run to the other teams dugout threatening to bash someone with a bat. The Florida State League is investigating and there is no word--yet, as to the length of Soler's suspension.

**UPDATE**---Young Mr. Soler will sit for 5 games and pay an undetermined fine for his actions...

Here is video of Mr. Soler from Spring Training:
