6/12 No comment re: Soler
Theo Epstein said he can’t comment on reports that Cuban outfielder Jorge Soler has agreed to terms with the Cubs. There were reports on Monday that Soler had agreed to a nine-year, $30 million contract.
“I saw those reports,” Epstein said. “I can’t really address anything until it’s official, and in this case, there’s usually a process where there’s an agreement and a term sheet and then there’s a immigration process in getting visas and then there’s a physical and once the physical is done, the signing can be official.”
The process could take about a week.
