MIAMI (AP) - Chicago Cubs right fielder Jorge Soler sat out a game for the first time this year Tuesday because of an ankle injury, and manager Joe Maddon didn’t rule out the possibility of a stint on the disabled list.

Soler was hurt trying to beat out a grounder Monday. He stayed in the game but the injury worsened overnight. Following Tuesday’s 5-2 loss to the Miami Marlins, Maddon said Soler faced further evaluation before the severity of the injury would be determined.

“Whether it’s going to be a DL kind of situation or a couple of days. I really don’t know yet,” Maddon said.

Through Monday, Soler led all NL rookies with 50 hits. He’s batting .265.
