With the 2012 Major League Draft in their rearview, the Chicago Cubs are setting their sights on free agent outfielder Jorge Soler, reports Patrick Mooney of CSN Chicago. Beyond the Cubs, the New York Yankees, Miami Marlins, Chicago White Sox, Pittsburgh Pirates and Toronto Blue Jays have all been tied to Soler recently.

This weekend Soler officially hit the free agent market. With it all but assured that the native Cuban will sign prior to the implementation of the new CBA’s international signing limits on July 2, the Soler sweepstakes are heating up.

Bruce Levine of ESPNChicago.com reported yesterday that Soler held a showcase for several major league teams in South Florida. It’s been confirmed that the Cubs were in attendance to watch Soler, and Levine reports they along with the White Sox, Yankees and Marlins are expected to be the highest bidders for the outfielder.

Soler’s agents have reportedly given interested teams a deadline of today to submit sealed bids with their best and final offers. Levine adds that, according to industry sources, it’s believes the bidding for Soler "will go somewhere between $25 and $35 million".

While several teams are expected to be in on the Soler bidding, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports that the New York Mets still don’t plan on pursuing the 20-year-old.
