Rafael Soriano, Jason Heyward to receive MRIs

SorianoTwo important contributors to teams on the east coast will undergo MRIs in the next couple of days.

The Yankees' Rafael Soriano has turned around his early-season struggles, but his velocity was down on Sunday and now will undergo an MRI on Wednesday, as the New York Daily News reports. There is likely nothing to worry about, as the MRI is strictly precautionary after Soriano informed manager Joe Guillen that his elbow was "a little bit tender."

Sori has a 5.79 ERA on the year in 14 innings, walking and striking out nine apiece. However, he has been unscored upon in his last four appearances.


HeywardJason Heyward was replaced in the game during the eighth inning for the Braves due to shoulder problems that will lead to an MRI on Tuesday.

"His right shoulder has been bothering him, and he came in the inning before we put [Eric] Hinske out there and said it was really, really bothering him," manager Fredi Gonzalez told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution after the game.

Heyward noted that the shoulder has been bothering him since spring training and his hand went numb after his last at-bat when he returned to right field. It remained numb throughout the half-inning, which prompted his removal from the game.

“Right now I’d say it’s starting to come up my forearm a little bit more, the numbness," Heyward said in what certainly sounds like a scary injury. Heyward says he's been affected by the injury all year, which may be one reason for his .226/.329/.444 start.

"It’s not been a consistent swing. It hasn’t felt good, really, for any consistent period of time," Heyward said. "I tried to play through it.”

The Braves really need Heyward to be healthy so I am hoping this injury is nothing serious.  It does sound scary though.  He is too young to be having so many injuries but so far they seem to be more of the "nagging" type.  He has such great potential and I look forward to Jason being able to fulfill that.

Soriano for some reason is acting up...don't know if his injury is legit or he has a beef with the orginization. 

And for Heyward...he's got super talent but for a kid so young he has more injuries than a 35 year old player.
