Reliever Joakim Soria, late of the Milwaukee Brewers, has declined his half of the $10 million mutual option with the club for 2019. As it takes two to tango, that makes him a free agent, joining the long list of other free agent relievers.
Despite all of the competition, Soria shouldn’t have much trouble finding a deal. The 34 year-old posted a 3.12 ERA and K/BB ratio of 75/16 over 60 and two-thirds innings between the White Sox and Brewers this past season. He has a 2.88 ERA and a K/BB ratio of 688/189 in 634 and a third innings in 639 games over the course of his 11-year career.
