Yoenis Cespedes Could Be Headed To AL Central With White Sox, Tigers

Yoenis Cespedes is enjoying a new surge of interest for his services as teams gear up to make their final bids for the Cuban star. Whether or not he will pan out, the potential is too good to pass up for teams with the money to spend, and it seems that the AL Central has a couple of teams reportedly in the final bidding. The Chicago White Sox and Detroit Tigers are both looking to add Cespedes to their farm system, but it's hard to tell who will come out on top. The Miami Marlins are also hoping to come out on top.

"If it can be arranged, and he wants to come to Miami and see our ballpark, it would be great," said Marlins president David Samson on Thursday, according to MLB.com. "From our standpoint, we are aggressively negotiating a contract, but there is no way of knowing if we will be a high bidder."

Other bidders reportedly include the Cubs and Orioles.
