Report: Jorge Soler Agrees With Cubs

The biggest acquisitions of the Cubs' offseason don't play baseball. They work in offices. There was some though that the Cubs would spend all sorts of money on Prince Fielder or Albert Pujols, but they never made a concerted effort for either.

They're obviously willing to spend money for the right fit, though, and that right fit was apparently 20-year-old Cuban defector Jorge Soler.

If you can remember all the way back to February, the Cubs were reported to have signed Soler already, but those reports were inaccurate. Or they were accurate, but it took a while.

This would mark the second time the Cubs made a splash in the Cuban market, as they signed Cuban pitcher Gerardo Concepcion in February for $6 million over five years. So far the 20-year-old lefty is struggling, walking 23 batters and allowing 48 hits in 38 Class-A innings.
