Soler wound up missing over a month with a sprained left ankle. He was just 2-for-13 on his four-game minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Iowa and the 23-year-old returns Sunday to a relatively underwhelming .724 OPS. But he feels like a player who’s capable of breaking out in a huge way in the second half.

Soler put up a .903 OPS, five home runs, and 20 RBI over his first 24 major league games last year.
