Jorge Soler Rumors: Teams Showing Major Interest, Including Cubs and Yankees

On Monday, Yoenis Cespedes agreed to sign a four-year deal with the Oakland A's, but he's not the only Cuban defector that's been commanding major interest this offseason. 19-year-old outfielder Jorge Soler is seeing interest from numerous teams as he awaits his declaration of free agency from MLB, including the Chicago Cubs and New York Yankees, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.

Soler is considered an exceptional prospect with legitimate five-tool potential, with Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus recently saying that he'd rank 38th or 39th among all prospects in the sport once he agrees to a deal. Both the Cubs (Brett Jackson) and Yankees (Mason Williams) have impressive prospects in the outfield, but Soler has the kind of impact potential that's hard to come by.

David Kaplan of CSN Chicago first reported that the Yankees have interest, while ESPN's Buster Olney has since added that their interest is serious. With high-revenue teams getting in the mix, expect Soler to land a significant commitment, well over eight figures.
