Alfonso Soriano’s Cubs career has come to an end. An anonymous source has told USA Today that the deal with the New York Yankees has been completed and awaits final approval from MLB officials. Soriano flew to New York, according to the report, and is expected to be in the lineup for Friday's Yankees game. The Cubs, who are expected to pay the bulk of Soriano's salary, said late Friday that acquired a 21-year-old pitcher, Corey Black, for Soriano.
