As you may know that the Fish are top runners but other than the Marlins who are interested in Yoenis Cespedes are The Chicago Cubs, Chicago White Sox, Detroit Tigers and the Baltimore Orioles.
The Cuban Sensation needed to wait the clearance of the U.S government so he could enter the country, meet with teams and negotiate a contract.
Juan Carlos Rodriguez Asked A Question To Cespedes
Asked if he was prepared for the majors or needed time in the minors, Yoenis Cespedes said: “No. I’m ready.” #marlins

In my opinion Cespedes needs to go to AAA for 2 months, after seeing him play really bad in the Winter Leagues. He needs to get better at hitting curve balls, he struck out a lot with that pitch in the Winter Leagues and get use to other stuff. But that’s my opinion, all he needs to do is play his best in the Spring Training. He would be battling the center field spot with Emilio Bonifacio, Aaron Rowand and Austin Kearns.
