Yoenis Cespedes Says That Chicago Cubs Lead Pursuit

Cuban outfielder Yoenis Cespedes told reporters in the Dominican Republic that the Chicago Cubs are currently the leading suitors in the chase for his services, as reported by ESPN Chicago. Cespedes is considered one of the top players left on the market, but he noted that the Cubs' heavy interest doesn't mean he'll sign there.

Of all the teams that have approached us, the one that has had the most interest in me has been the Chicago Cubs. I have had dinner a couple of times [with Cubs officials] and we have talked a lot, but that doesn't mean that I am going to sign with them.

Cespedes, 26, is currently playing for Aguilas Cibaenas in the Dominican Republic while he awaits his designation as a free agent by MLB. At that point, the outfielder will be free to sign with any of the 30 teams, many of which are interested.
