Cubs close deal on Cuban prospect Soler
CHICAGO – The Cubs finally added their coveted piece to the organization’s rebuilding project.
The Cubs signed Cuban outfielder Jorge Soler to a nine-year, $30 million major league contract which puts him on the 40-man roster. They needed to sign Soler by Monday when the new collective bargaining agreement went into effect, which limits spending on international players to $2.9 million.
Although the Cubs and Soler initially agreed to terms a few weeks ago, he needed to obtain a work visa and take a physical before the contract could be signed. The documents were finalized late Friday.
