Yanks Miss Out On Soler

Via MLB Trade Rumors:
Soler and the Cubs agreed to a nine-year deal worth approximately $30MM, Jon Heyman of reports. At least three or four teams placed bids of $20MM plus, according to Heyman. Depending on how long Soler spends at the minor league level, the deal could cover all of his arbitration seasons and multiple free agent years.

Soler can opt out of his yearly salaries and file for arbitration once eligible,'s Keith Law reports. As Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports explains, this means Soler could earn more than $30MM with the Cubs.
The Yankees had been interested in Soler, but obviously did not have the winning bid.
