Chicago Cubs left fielder Alfonso Soriano cleared waivers on Wednesday and is eligible to be dealt, reports CBSSports.com.

For Soriano to be dealt, he has to give the approval because he is a 10-and-5 player. The San Francisco Giants may be in line for a left fielder since Melky Cabrera was suspended 50 games for using performance enhancing drugs.

Soriano recently said that the Los Angeles Dodgers are the only West Coast team he would consider being traded to. Soriano's salary is $18 million and his contract runs through 2014.

Soriano is batting.264 with 21 home runs and 71 RBI this season, and all of his homers have come since May 15.
