Report: Jorge Soler to sign with an organization by Monday

With Breet Gardner On The DL Until The All-Star Break, Soler Might Be A Wise Investment For The Yankees

By @ Hardball Talk

Mike Puma and George King III of the New York Post pass along this big-time update on the status of a particular unsigned Cuban defector:

According to an industry source, free agent outfielder Jorge Soler is expected to agree on a four-year deal before tomorrow.

Meaning negotiations are currently underway.

The Cubs, Yankees, Dodgers and Braves have been tied most frequently (and most recently) to the promising 20-year-old outfielder. While the Orioles, Phillies and White Sox have also been linked. Soler is expected to get at least $25 million guaranteed.

Baseball America described Soler recently as “one of Cuba’s up-and-coming young power hitters as a star on Cuba’s national junior circuit and on the junior national team.” He is a raw but intriguing talent.
