Cuban outfield sensation Jorge Soler was finally declared a free agent by Major League Baseball on Saturday, and the youngster is looking to get paid, and now.
According to ESPNChicago's Bruce Levine, Soler's agents, Praver-Shapiro Sports Management, are requesting teams to have their bids for the 19-year-old star submitted by June 7.
Soler is considered to have five-tool potential. At 6'3" and 200 pounds, Soler likely projects as a right fielder with considerable power, a strong accurate throwing arm, and speed to burn on the basepaths.
Soler's agents will want Soler signed before July 2 in order to avoid being penalized under the new tax regulations and sanctions that are part of the new collective bargaining agreement.
There is no doubt that a number of teams will be submitting bids for Soler's services, with his agents referring to their young star prospect as providing "Soler Power."
Here are 10 MLB teams that are very interested in Soler's services.
