Jorge Soler Rumors: Cubs, Yankees, Phillies Among Interested Teams

9:03 PM ET: The Marlins are not interested in Jorge Soler afterall, according to Marlins president David Samson (via Joe Frisaro). And Jeff Passan is being told the two teams pursuing Soler the hardest are the New York Yankees and the Philadelphia Phillies -- and notes that bidding could "get expensive":

  • Twitter / @JeffPassan - "No surprise, but the two teams in hardest on Jorge Soler right now are the Yankees and Phillies, two sources say. This will get expensive."
  • Twitter / @JoeFrisaro -
    "Marlins president David Samson confirms on 790 The Ticket team has no interest in Soler"

5:03 PM ET: With Yoenis Cespedes headed to Oakland, the focus has shifted to 19-year-old prospect Jorge Soler. As we heard yesterday, the Cuban defector is generating lots of interest around the league. In fact, Ken Rosenthal writes that the interest in Soler appears broader than it was for Cespedes.

The most notable teams in the sweepstakes have been identified as the Cubs, Marlins, and Yankees, though other organizations (Red Sox, Phillies to name a few) have shown interest.
