Last night, Chicago Cubs prospect Jorge Soler was ejected from his Class A team’s game after the 21 year-old approached the opposing team’s dugout wielding a bat following an earlier confrontation on the field.
Soler, whom YouWager bettors know Chicago signed to a nine-year, $30 million deal in 2012 — slid into second base during the seventh inning of the Florida State League game and had exchanged a few insults with an opposing player for the Clearwater Threshers in Daytona Beach, Fla.
Players from both teams came out to separate the two, and the sides returned to their dugouts. However, the native of Cuba sprinted back out — with bat in hand — toward the Threshers’ side.
According to sources, Soler was caught by Cubs teammates before he made it to the opposing dugout and never swung the bat. There were a few minutes of tension for the Threshers.
Daytona manager Dave Keller said those few seconds were “kind of like a nightmare,”.
Soler was then ejected and no further discipline was immediately announced.
