It is being reported that Yoenis Cespedes is nearing a deal that should end his free agency, but the only thing that has yet to be revealed is which team he will sign with.

Earlier in the week, the Baltimore Orioles made an offer to Cespedes in the range of five years/$90 million dollars. While there were rumors that the New York Mets may have offered the Cuban native a one year deal, MLB.com’s Anthony DiComo noted that a source revealed it not to be true.

As of Sunday the Mets, Orioles, Braves, and White Sox have all shown interest in signing the all-star outfielder, but it’s anyone’s guess at this point who will land his services.

Stay tuned as we keep you posted on any new developments.
