Cespedes arriving in Miami on Tuesday
MIAMI — Cuban sensation Yeonis Cespedes is scheduled to visit Miami late Tuesday afternoon.
The 26-year-old outfielder, along with his agent Adam Katz of Wasserman Media Group, are expected to meet with Marlins on Wednesday.
According to multiple sources, the Marlins are considered the frontrunner to sign Cespedes.
For months, the Marlins have made it clear that they are interested in Cespedes, regarded as a five-tool player with blazing speed and immense power.
The Marlins, Tigers, Orioles, Cubs, White Sox and Indians have expressed the most interest in Cespedes, who can play all three outfield positions.
