    • Rafael Soriano: To retire from baseball
      By RotoWire Staff

      Soriano will retire after 14 major league seasons, James Wagner of the Washington Post reports. Soriano pitched in just 5.2 MLB innings last year with a 63.5 ERA as he looked washed up at 35 years old. Overall, though, Soriano had a stellar career, finishing with 207 saves and a 2.89 ERA (144 ERA+) in 636.1 innings. He came up as a 22-year-old with the Mariners in 2002 and enjoyed stints with Atlanta, Tampa Bay, the Yankees and Washington before his brief last season with the Cubs.

    • Soriano is not in camp yet as he and the Blue Jays are still working out some visa issues, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsbet reports.

    • Soriano signed a minor league deal with a spring training invite with the Blue Jays on Sunday. Soriano had about as rough a 2015 as possible, waiting until June to sign a minor league deal with the Cubs, then struggling in five innings amid shoulder issues. It's not likely the 36-year-old reaches his old peak, but a healthy showing could land him in the late innings. Given his age however, that's a long shot.
