We got him back this year -- on a topper -- at PRECISELY the AP price (4x4); would have cheerfully gone $16.

Royals out-homer the Red Sox 3-0 and outscore them 6-2 in Fenway, dropping the home team's home record to 28-30.

What were the odds of that? 

In the process Soler joins the 30-homer club.

While you were posting here, Phil, I was writing "en fuego in ST" in Quick Memo and raising my bid.

Absolutely crushed his 4th HR of the preseason off AJ Cole today ... the wind was blowing out, but that HR was going out even in still air.

I was thinking of him as a post-hype sleeper last year.  This could be the one.

Jorge Soler (OF) KC - Feb. 21

Soler (toe) is 100 percent healthy heading into Cactus League play, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Soler missed the final three and a half months of the 2018 campaign due to a fractured toe, but he's back to full health ahead of Saturday's spring opener. Prior to getting injured, the soon-to-be 27-year-old was enjoying a career-year, slashing .265/.354/.466 with nine homers and 28 RBI in 61 games. He's expected to open the season as the Royals' primary designated hitter.
