Now this is some good news

Zachary Levine's latest post lets everyone know that the Astros are "keeping an eye on" the next-biggest Cuban prospect, Jorge Soler.

Luhnow:
“I have seen him before,” Luhnow said, adding that he’s been in contact with Soler’s camp. “He’s still not at the point where he’s a free agent yet, but we’re keeping tabs on him.”

Of course, everyone is in on Soler, trying to out-A's the A's with their signing of Yoenis Cespedes. But at least the Astros are interested...

Nick Carfado of the Boston Globe heard from two general managers that Soler will indeed go for more than five years and the $15-20 million most thought he’d receive.
