Cubs manager Mike Quade said Soto would have an MRI on Wednesday morning.
After Soto's injury, Triple-A Iowa catcher Welington Castillo was taken out of the game early in their game at Colorado Springs on Tuesday. Castillo will be in Chicago on Wednesday in case Soto has to go on the disabled list.
Soto, the No. 8 batter in Chicago's order, is hitting .226 with three homers and 12 RBIs.
