March 7, 2012 3 Comments
(WSCR) According to a report, the Cubs may be on the verge of signing 19-year-old old Cuban prospect Jorge Soler for $27 million.
The report indicates Soler is often compared to his countryman Yoenis Cespedes, who signed with the A's this offseason. The difference, however, is age. Cespedes is 26, while Soler is only 19 and could be developed in the Cubs' organization.
