Two months into the 2015 regular season, reliever Rafael Soriano is still a free agent. He wants to sign with a team and has dropped agent Scott Boras in an effort to expedite that process, James Wagner of the Washington Post reports.
Soriano, 35, struggled in the second half last season and was booted from the closer’s role by Nationals manager Matt Williams, giving way to Drew Storen. Despite his ouster, Soriano wasn’t all that bad, finishing with a 3.19 ERA, 32 saves, and a 59/19 K/BB ratio in 62 innings. One would think he could be an upgrade for at least one team out there if not as a closer, then simply as bullpen depth.
