Wanna buy Alfonso Soriano’s condo?

Alfonso Soriano is putting his Chicago condo on the market two months after being traded from the Cubs to the Yankees.

Some details, via Charlie Roumeliotis of CSNChicago.com:

The newly-acquired Yankee has put up his three-bedroom, 3,838-square-foot condominium in River North for $2.95 million. He purchased the penthouse for $2.65 million in December of 2006, a month after he inked an eight-year, $136 million deal with the Cubs.

The luxurious 44th-floor unit at The Pinnacle features a marble entryway, a kitchen with a granite island, a built-in surround system, a 150-square-foot terrace, a wine cellar, a master suite and two additional en-suite bedrooms, 3-1/2 baths, two large his-or-hers walk-in closets, two parking spaces, and floor-to-ceiling windows with views to the east, south, and west.

I love that “a kitchen with a granite island” is a selling point for a $2.95 million place.

The Nationals announced that third baseman Anthony Rendon has been placed on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to April 19, with a toe contusion. Pitcher Austin Adams was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse.

Rendon fouled a pitch off of his foot on April 13 in a game against the Rockies. The Nationals were hoping he wouldn’t need to go on the disabled list, which is why he was day-to-day for a week and a half. Unfortunately, Rendon’s stint on the DL can only be backdated to Thursday, so he won’t be eligible to return until this weekend.

Rendon, 27, is hitting .286/.355/.411 with a home run and four RBI in 62 plate appearances so far this season. Wilmer Difo has been handling third base while Rendon has been out and figures to continue doing so for the next week or so.
