7/17 Soriano to Yankees?
The Chicago Tribune reported on Sunday an “unconfirmed rumor” from the Cubs camp has the Yankees looking at a multi-player deal with the Cubs, which would involve Alfonso Soriano. He would be an expensive addition as Soriano is owed nearly $63 million and is signed through 2014. But the Yankees apparently want more production from left field. Soriano, 35, does have a no-trade clause. He played for the Yankees from 1999-2003, but was a second baseman then.
