The Rangers, Mariners, and Giants showed strong interest in the slugger but are no longer in the running. Abreu Could sign in the next two weeks. Link to article below:

    Cuban slugger Jose Abreu has narrowed choices to Astros, Red Sox, White Sox | whitesox.com: News
    From MLB traderumors on Tuesday. It's now up to 8 teams that were apparently in the running, with supposedly 5 that were in it for the similar big dollars that he ultimately received (add the Rockies and one other to the big dollar list), and curiously, the Sox familiarity with past Cubans and their success with the organization was a significant factor:

    1) "Also from the conference, Abreu himself stated (through his translator) that the history of Cuban players finding success in the White Sox organization was an important element for him in choosing to sign with the Sox.

    2) Abreu's agent, Barry Praver, tells Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago that eight teams made offers to his client, and five of the offers hit $60+MM (Twitter link). It's already been reported that the Rockies were surprise contenders, offering $63MM over six years."
