Cubs-Reds Preview

(AP) -- The Chicago Cubs are again set to showcase a prospect they hope will play a prominent role in their future.

Highly touted slugger Jorge Soler is expected to make his major league debut Wednesday night when the visiting Cubs try to match a season high with their fifth consecutive victory against the Cincinnati Reds.

With starter Kyle Hendricks, outfielder Arismendy Alcantara and infielder Javier Baez all having enjoyed various levels of success since making their big-league debuts for Chicago (59-72) this season, the 22-year-old Soler provides another glimpse of the rebuilding franchise's potentially bright future.
