Evening Notes & Links: Trade Talks, Soler, Noesi, Joba-Lin

Good evening everybody. Here are a few notes & links to cap the day….

— Although we heard the Yankees and Pirates were at stand still for most of the day, things appear to have changed, says Newsday’s David Waldstein. Progress has been made today with the Yankees and both the Pirates and the “mystery team”, yet to be identified. The Yankees will probably strike a deal with whichever team provides the better offer.

Kevin Kernan of the NY Daily News talked to Joba Chamberlain about “Linsanity” and the similarities he and Jeremy Lin share.

— Now that Yoenis Cespedes has signed with the Oakland Athletics, the attention is turning to fellow Cuban OF Jorge Soler. The 19 year old is drawing heavy interest from the Chicago Cubs and Miami Marlins in addition to many other teams like the Yankees, Red Sox, and Phillies. Ken Rosenthal writes that the bidding figures to be broader than for Cespedes. I’m sure the Yanks will be large participants in the bidding as Soler would be a terrific signing for them.

— Via Chad Jennings, Hector Noesi (the secondary piece sent to the Mariners in the Montero trade) expressed that he is happy to be on the Seattle Mariners now. He also marvels over the accomplishments of ace Felix Hernandez, saying that he “is someone all Latin Americans can be proud of, with what he’s done.”

Have a great night!
