Report: Phillies Have Made Offer to Jorge Soler, Don’t Look Like Favorites

Soler
According to CSN's Jim Salisbury, the Phillies have made an offer to Cuban prospect Jorge Soler. Although the Phillies have made an offer, they do not appeal as the favorites for Soler's services.

If the Phillies are serious about offering Soler any contract, it better be worth it. 

The Chicago Cubs and New York Yankees have favorites for Soler. The Los Angeles Dodgers were reportedly a favorite, but they sold out early today. Soler is also expected to decide who he will sign with today.

Cuba's other prospect, Yoenis Cespedes, is batting .275 with 6 HR and 26 RBI in 35 games this season. He has already been on the DL with hamstring problems.
