Geovany Soto's Chicago Cubs career started off quickly as a end of the year call up from the minor leagues in 2007, Soto showed great promise and landed a spot on the Cubs playoff roster against the Arizona Diamondbacks hitting a home run in a game 2 loss.  With 2008 being another Cubs playoff team, Soto earned Rookie of the Year honors hitting 23 home runs, driving in 86 runs and hitting .285.  This ended up being Soto's best year with the Cubs before being traded to the Texas Rangers in July of 2012.
