Report: Chicago Cubs Receiving Interest In Alfonso Soriano

The Chicago Cubs are receiving interest from other teams about veteran outfielder Alfonso Soriano, according to Jon Heyman of SI.com.

Soriano, 35, signed an eight-year, $136 million deal with the Cubs in November of 2006. The deal, which possesses a full no-trade clause, will pay him $18 million annually from 2012-2014. Theo Esptein, the new president of baseball operations for Chicago, has made it clear since taking over the team this fall that any player on the roster is available for trade.

Last season in 137 games, Soriano hit just .244/.289/.469 with 26 home runs and 88 RBI. The seven-time All-Star has hit .266/.320/.498 with 132 home runs and 367 RBI in five years with the Cubs. Prior to signing with Chicago, Soriano spent one year with the Washington Nationals where he joined the elite 40-40 club, by hitting .377/.351/.560 with 46 home runs and 41 stolen bases.
