Title says it all. BYB linked to two sources who are saying Cespedes is about to sign a 4 year, $36 million contract with the Oakland A's.
Tim Brown, from Yahoo! Sports:
Source: Yoenis Cespedes has agreed to terms with the Oakland A's.
And Susan Slusser, A's beat writer for the San Fran Chronicle:
#Athletics about to sign Cespedes for for four years, $36 million.
I'm surprised to see the A's come up. From everything I had read about the pursuit of Cespedes, the A's weren't in the running. Either way, I'm a little disappointed that the Tigers weren't able to get him. Not that I fully expected them to get him, and not that I'm at all disappointed with Fielder, but we could use a young outfield prospect.
Anyway, good luck to Cespedes.
EDIT: ESPN is reporting it as a done deal.
