— Joel Sherman (@Joelsherman1) June 11, 2012

Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com tweeted the length of the deal.

This is a great move by Theo Epstein, Jed Hoyer and the rest of the Cubs' front office.
Soler profiles as a young power hitter and could potentially be a bargain at the major league level, as he will make just $30 million over the course of his nine-year pact.
Epstein outbid the Houston Astros, Pittsburgh Pirates, Cleveland Indians, Toronto Blue Jays, Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees to get his guy, and Chicago fans should be excited to see how this young man progresses.
