08:16 AM ET 06.11 | New York stood idly by as teams chased international stars such as Yu Darvish and Yoenis Cespedes this past offseason, but that may change soon. [The Yankees] are making a strong push to land Cuban defector Jorge Soler, sources have confirmed. Teams were expected to make their final bids [Sunday] night for the 20-year-old outfielder, with a decision expected to come as soon as [Monday]. He is expected to get a four-year deal that could be worth $20 million. The Yankees are "trying very hard to sign him," according to a source familiar with the team's thinking. Their interest is not a surprise, despite the organization's recent reluctance to chase high-priced international free agents.

Not sure if this is NY Post hype or not. I thought the Yankees were supposed to have some talent in the minors to fill this kind of void.

They do but Mason is a few years away from the bigs.
