Is there anywhere for Alfonso Soriano to land?

Chicago Cubs

This is of course the least likely of all, as the move last season was a show that the Cubs were moving forward. The Cubs have a relatively full outfield, but there is the chance Nate Schierholtz could be moved by the deadline. This still puts Soriano in the uncomfortable position of playing the field.

My biggest thought for mentioning the Cubs is, well, we’re pretty much paying him anyway.

That’s really not enough of a reason, and it’s not going to happen. If the Cubs were looking to fill a roster spot and needed a body it might be a thought. Soriano was a great mentor, and could be somewhat of a player/coach if he returned.

But even with the Cubs footing most of the bill wherever he goes, it’s near unthinkable he would end up back in Chicago.
