Soriano, 36, struggled in six appearances with the Cubs last year before succumbing to shoulder woes. He yielded four runs on eight hits and a walk with four strikeouts in 5 2/3 innings. He was solid in 2014 with the Nationals but had some late-season struggles and eventually ceded the closer’s role to Drew Storen. Now they’re teammates again.
It’s essentially a zero-risk chance for the Jays to catch lightning in a bottle. Their bullpen is already formidable, but if Soriano shows he still has anything left in the tank, he can make even the middle innings tough for their opponents.
