1/17 Wining & dining Cespedes
Could the Cubs have the inside track with Cuban outfielder Yoenis Cespedes?
“Of all the teams that have approached us, the one that has had the most interest in me has been the Chicago Cubs,” Cespedes told the Associated Press in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. “I have had dinner a couple of times [with Cubs officials] and we have talked a lot but that doesn’t mean that I am going to sign with them. I am only telling it like it is, they have shown more interest than others.”
Jose Serra, the Cubs’ director of Latin American scouting, attended Cespedes’ game Monday. The Cuban outfielder is playing in the Dominican winter league.
