While Yoenis Cespedes is one of the most intriguing players we've seen in quite some time, the usual high-spending teams in the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees may take a pass on him, according to CBS Sports' Danny Knobler. The Yankees front office isn't completely out on Cespedes, but the team is split on spending high for such a raw talent.

With Cespedes' background, many thought the Miami Marlins would be heavily interested in the Cuban defect, but that also seems unlikely now, Knobler says.

  • Yankees, Red Sox may not bid high on Cespedes -
    "While the market for Cuban outfielder Yoenis Cespedes is unpredictable, the word this week is that neither the Yankees nor the Red Sox plan to be heavily involved."
  • Twitter / @DKnobler - "On Cespedes, appears neither Yankees nor Red Sox will be in heavy on him. Divide in NYY front office, so maybe could change in their case."
  • Twitter / @DKnobler - "Also on Cespedes, hear that there is also divide on him in Marlins front office, and they may not go as heavy as most suspect."
