Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe says one suggestion for replacing outfielder Melky Cabrera is Vernon Wells from the Angels. He’s now a fifth outfielder and he believes the Angels would be willing to eat significant money. Wells is currently hitting .222 with 7 homers and 18 RBI in 50 games for the Angels.
Cafardo also points out that the Cubs front office is somewhat disappointed that outfielder Alfonso Soriano won’t waive his 10-5 rights to go to the San Francisco Giants. Soriano doesn’t want to play in a colder climate and thinks that would affect his hitting. Soriano is currently hitting .263 with 22 homers and 75 RBI in 111 games for the Cubs.
