KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Royals outfielder Jorge Soler will miss at least six weeks after breaking a bone in his left foot while leaving the batter's box in Kansas City's series opener against Houston.
Soler had provided some much-needed punch to a struggling Kansas City offense, batting .265 with nine homers and 28 RBIs. He has been especially crucial while fellow outfielder Jorge Bonifacio finishes off his 80-game suspension for testing positive for a banned substance.
Soler home run leads Royals over A’s 5-4
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Tim Hill was happy to gain his first major league victory. The 28-year-old rookie left-hander could have done without his first blown save chance.
Jorge Soler hit a tiebreaking home run in the eighth inning, and the Kansas Royals bounced back after wasting a four-run lead to defeat the Oakland Athletics 5-4 on Saturday for their third win in four games.
"I was kind of upset I gave up a run, and I kind of felt like I didn't do my job," Hill said.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Mike Moustakas helped the Kansas City Royals take a nine-run lead in the second inning. They nearly gave it all away.
Moustakas homered, doubled and drove in four runs in the first two innings, Jorge Soler went 4 for 5 with a home run, but the Royals nearly blew the big lead before holding on for a 11-8 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday night.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Andrew Miller returned Friday night, but the tough times for the Cleveland Indians' bullpen aren't over.
The reliever, activated from the disabled list before the game, gave up Salvador Perez's two-run homer in the seventh inning and the Kansas City Royals rallied for a 10-9 win.
"I did a really poor job with one pitch and I paid for it," Miller said.
BALTIMORE (AP) — Dylan Bundy had a difficult time on the mound and an easy explanation for his horrid, record-setting performance.
"I was leaving pitches right down the middle and they were hitting them over the fence," the right-hander said, matter-of-factly.
BALTIMORE (AP) — The Kansas City Royals have taken a 10-run, first-inning lead over the Baltimore Orioles after hitting four homers before making an out.
The brunt of the Royals' outburst at Camden Yards came against Dylan Bundy, who yielded seven runs without retiring a single batter.
After Jon Jay hit a leadoff single, Jorge Soler, Mike Moustakas and Salvador Perez connected in succession.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Jorge Soler thought his spectacular diving catch in the ninth inning that helped preserve the Kansas City Royals' 4-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers trumped his go-ahead single the previous inning.
Maybe that was because the young outfielder's defense has been so maligned early in his career.
Or maybe it was because he got to the foul ball before the ballboy.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Ned Yost was happy to see Jorge Soler's pitch recognition sharpen, slugging first baseman Lucas Duda produce some timely hits and Alex Gordon's long-awaited breakout continue for at least another day.
For once, the Royals manager had plenty of reasons to praise his offense.
BOSTON (AP) — The Kansas City Royals just wouldn't stop rallying against the Red Sox.
Alex Gordon hit a tying home run off Craig Kimbrel in the ninth inning, and Jorge Soler slugged a three-run homer in the 13th and the Royals beat Boston 7-6 on Tuesday night.
"They kept battling. They kept fighting and kept trying to put together good at-bats," manager Ned Yost said of his club. "Gordon's home run was big there to keep us in the ballgame and just keep plugging away."
Soler hopes to show Royals he can remain healthy
SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) — Jorge Soler has made six trips to the disabled list since leaving Cuba and signing a $30 million, nine-year contract with the Chicago Cubs.
Dealt in December to Kansas City for Royals closer Wade Davis, the outfielder hopes to show his new team he can stay healthy.

Cubs agree to $6 million, 1-year deal with Koji Uehara
CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Cubs made another addition to their bullpen following the departure of Aroldis Chapman, agreeing to a $6 million, one-year contract with reliever Koji Uehara.
Chicago now has the pitchers who got the final out of three of the last four World Series — Mike Montgomery (this year), Wade Davis (2015) and Uehara (2013). Davis, who figures to take over as closer, was acquired from Kansas City last week for outfielder Jorge Soler.
Cubs get closer Wade Davis from Royals for OF Jorge Soler
OXON HILL, Md. (AP) — Wade Davis already had closed out a World Series. And that was part of his appeal for the Chicago Cubs.
In a trade between the last two champions, the Cubs acquired the All-Star reliever from the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday for outfielder Jorge Soler. Davis immediately takes over the spot held by Aroldis Chapman, who became a free agent after the Cubs won their first title since 1908.
"Wade is going to pitch the ninth inning," Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer said.
LEADING OFF: What to watch at the baseball winter meetings
A look at what's happening today at the baseball winter meetings in Oxon Hill, Maryland:
The World Series champion Cubs are hoping to finish off a deal for closer Wade Davis in a trade that would send outfielder Jorge Soler to Kansas City. Davis has been dominant for the last three years and would inherit the role left open when Aroldis Chapman became a free agent.
