Betancourt Receiving Interest From Four Clubs

Yuniesky Betancourt is one of the remaining free agents on the market who displayed better-than-average power in 2012.  Agent Alex Esteban of Miami Sports Management tells MLBTR that his client is drawing a good amount of interest that will result in a major league deal.

"I can assure you that Yuni will be signing a Major League contract. Currently, there are four teams we are in conversations with and we expect to be finalizing a deal shortly after the holidays," Esteban said.

Betancourt, 31 in January, spent 57 games with the Royals last season, posting a .228/.256/.400 batting line with seven homers.  The infielder was reportedly on the Cubs' radar earlier this month as a third base option.
