Cubs Rumors: Alfonso Soriano Drawing Interest?

At least one club has inquired on acquiring veteran Chicago Cubs outfielder Alfonso Soriano, a source has told Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports.

It’s far from certain that [Soriano] will be dealt before Tuesday’s non-waiver deadline, [but] a major-league source told FOXSports.com that at least one club has inquired about him.

The 36-year-old Soriano is having a resurgent year of sorts. After an abysmal month of April that included no home runs, Soriano is hitting .285/.345/.587 with 19 home runs in 70 games since.

As always, the biggest question with Soriano is whether any team will be able to come to an agreement on the large sum of money he is owed through the 2014 season. Soriano is owed $18 million this year and each of the next two seasons.

While it is unclear which club(s) may have interest in the veteran outfielder, the Dodgers, Pirates, Reds and Indians have all been on the hunt for an outfield bat in recent weeks. If the Cubs are able to find a suitor for Soriano, they will also have to navigate their way around his full no-trade clause.

Will the Cubs be able to unload Soriano before the deadline?
