"I'll always strive to play every day," he said. "I think I can play every day. With that being said, this is a role I'm doing right now. I put my ego aside and help the team win."
Soler takes fly balls
Outfielder Jorge Soler, on the 10-day disabled list with a left oblique strain sustained late in Spring Training, has resumed baseball activities. Soler took some fly balls Monday at Target Field before the game.
"I feel really good right now," Soler said through interpreter Pedro Grifol. "I was able to do some stuff outside today. In three or four days, I might take some dry swings."
Soler was hurt during an at-bat in a Minor League game.
"I took a swing and I felt like something [pop] there," he said. "It has happened before but nothing like that.
"It is frustrating having it happen this close to the season, but that happens."
