Kevin Goldstein recently said that, when signed, Soler would become his #38 prospect in baseball.

Q: Where would Jorge Soler rank?
A: Number 38 (or number 39 if Cespedes was also getting ranked), ahead of Yasmani Grandal.



Be sure to check out Don's Jorge Soler scouting report.

I'm not expecting it to happen, but it would be nice to add an elite prospect to the system.

$27 mil is a lot of coin to drop on a guy who not even a top ten prospect. I can't believe the Cubs would be that stupid.. nor should the Orioles 8-)
