The move that has been in motion for days is now nearly complete as the Cubs are set to send Alfonso Soriano to the Yankees. Soriano was originally in tonight's lineup for Chicago before he was a late scratch. Cubs manager Dale Sveum says that the deal is 99% of the way complete. Specifics should be known soon, but to my knowledge, none of the Yankees' affiliates beat writers have tweeted about a player being pulled. We'll have to wait and see.
More to come.
