CHICAGO -- Cubs No. 5-ranked prospect Jorge Soler had to leave his Minor League season opener Thursday because of a sore right hamstring, and he was placed on Double-A Tennessee's disabled list Friday.

Soler doubled in the first inning off Mat Latos, who was making a rehab start for Pensacola. Soler was limited to 55 games at Class A Daytona last season because of a strained left calf.

"It sounds like the exact same injury [Soler had this spring]," Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer said Friday. "He maybe rushed back too early to get ready for Opening Day or maybe it's a coincidence. He hits a double in the gap against Latos, and it's a shame that's the way his season started out. Hopefully, we'll get good news and he'll be back on the field soon."

Soler was to have an MRI on his leg either Friday or Saturday, Hoyer said.
