Jorge Soler is expected to sign a four-year deal by the end of Monday, according to various sources.

At long last, the Jorge Soler signing saga looks like it'll come to an end. According to the New York Post, the Cuban outfielder is reportedly set to agree to a contract sometime in the next day.

ESPN's Buster Olney tweeted earlier this weekend that the most aggressive teams in pursuit of Soler have been the New York Yankees, Chicago Cubs, Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers.

Of course, if the past two offseasons have taught us nothing, fans and pundits alike can never rule out the ever mysterious 'Mystery Team,' as Soler and his agent have been fielding offers over the weekend as well.

Soler is a 20 year old Cuban outfielder, who profiles as a classic right fielder -- solid/above average batting average, with excellent power and good defense.

Soler is believed to be looking for a four-year contract.
