NEW YORK (WFAN) — The offensively challenged New York Yankees are in serious talks to reacquire Alfonso Soriano from the Chicago Cubs, according to WFAN/CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman.

Soriano has veto power, meaning he’d need to approve a trade to the Yankees.

The 37-year-old outfielder is batting .256 with 24 doubles, 17 home runs and 51 RBIs. The Yankees have only 88 home runs as a team.

George King of the New York Post first reported the discussions.

Soriano signed an eight-year, $136 million contract with the Cubs prior to the 2007 season. Chicago would “pay the bulk” remaining money on his contract, the Post reported.

The Yankees would send a mid-level prospect to the Cubs, according to the Post.

Soriano made his major league debut with the Yankees in 1999. He hit .284 with 98 home runs, 270 RBIs in parts of five seasons with New York.

The Yankees traded Soriano to the Texas Rangers for Alex Rodriguez in early 2004.
