The Cubs won the bidding for Cuban outfielder Jorge Soler, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports (on Twitter). The Yankees, Phillies and Dodgers were among the many teamslinked to Soler, a top international prospect.
I saw Sherman’s tweet come across, and he said he was HEARING that the Cubs won the bidding, that that they HAD won, so we’re still waiting for final final confirmation. But . . . it looks like Theo got his man.
Not knowing what the Cubs paid to land him, how do you feel about this signing?
UPDATE: Ken Rosenthal has confirmed that the Cubs will sign Soler.
