Following the report that the Cubs have offered their top prospect to the New York Yankees, new sources confirm it could be a blockbuster deal.
Folks, it’s trade deadline season and although the New York Yankees may not be buying, they are still in the mix.
In five seasons in the Cubs’ farm system, Soler owns a .300/.378/.534 slash line with 28 home runs in 158 career games and was listed as baseball’s 12-best prospect by Baseball America heading into last season.
Despite all this, however, I fully expect the Yankees to be hesitant on dealing Pineda and Eovaldi. They have asked for “too much” before when discussing both of the righties with the Pittsburgh Pirates and it should not change now unless they are blown away.
