Alfonso Soriano Wise to Accept Likely Trade to New York Yankees
Not much has changed in Chicago…or New York, for that matter. The Chicago Cubs are set on continuing their youth movement and that includes trading Alfonso Soriano, who reportedly says he’ll waive veto rights and allow the team to deal him as long as he approves the new destination. However, the most likely landing spot isn’t new for the 37-year-old slugger.
Soriano started his major-league career for the New York Yankees, playing there for the better part of five seasons at the turn of the century. Naturally, the Bronx Bombers are looking to add another veteran right-handed bat and they seem set on bringing Soriano back for one last hurrah. With a bonafide plan in place to make another push at a World Series, why wouldn’t Fonsy want to return to the Big Apple for a chance at a third ring?
So it’s no surprise that Soriano told the Cubs he would be fine with a trade to the Yankees and it looked as though a deal was in place with the 14-year veteran was not in Chicago’s lineup on Wednesday night. However, a deal should be completed sometime over the weekend, so stay tuned to RantSports.com for the latest on a possible trade for Soriano.
