The most aggressive teams in the Jorge Soler sweepstakes are the Chicago Cubs, New York Yankees, Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers, reports Buster Olney of ESPN. Olney adds that the next round of bidding for Soler is due this weekend. Beyond the teams mentioned above, the Chicago White Sox, Houston Astros, Pittsburgh Pirates, Toronto Blue Jays, Philadelphia Phillies, Boston Red Sox and Cleveland Indians appear to have some interest in Soler.

This week, Bruce Levine of ESPNChicago.com reported that the Cubs, Yankees, White Sox and Marlins were expected to be the highest bidders for Soler. It’s since been reported that the Marlins are no longer in the running.

Industry sources told Levine earlier this week that the bidding for Soler "will go somewhere between $25 and $35 million. Soon after Soler officially became a free agent, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reported Soler’s agent has told teams he already had offers on the table for $25 million.
