From the NYPost:
According to an industry source, free agent outfielder Jorge Soler is expected to agree on a four-year deal before tomorrow.

The Yankees and Cubs have expressed strong interest in the 20-year-old, who some scouts believe is a better player than fellow Cuban defector Yoenis Cespedes, 26, who signed with the Athletics.

The Yankees don’t have Nick Swisher’s replacement in the system if he leaves via free agency and Soler would represent a smaller investment than chasing free agent Josh Hamilton.
Buster Olney said yesterday that the Yankees were one of the most aggressive teams in pursuit of the Curban outfielder.

Last week, the Yankees made a splash on the International FA market, agreeing to a $600,000 deal with Dominican pitcher Manolo Reyes. That deal is pending MLB approval because Reyes had some issues with his paperwork. You can read more about that signing here.
