Joakim Soria takes loss in non-save situation
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Rangers closer Joakim Soria's struggles continued Saturday, as he was charged with the loss in a 6-5, extra-innings loss to the Astros.

Soria pitched the 10th inning of the tied game and allowed the Astros to take the lead following a one-out triple and a sacrifice fly. He was charged with the one run in his one inning of work, with one hit and one walk to his line.

Soria has allowed runs in two of five appearances this season, and has a 7.20 ERA in five innings, with five hits and two walks allowed.

Joakim Soria secures win vs. Phillies Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rangers closer Joakim Soria picked up a win in his first appearance of the season Tuesday, striking out one in a scoreless ninth inning in his team's 3-2 win over the Phillies.

Soria won the closing role after giving up just one earned run in 9 2/3 innings this spring while Neftali Feliz struggled. The former Royals closer could be primed for a big season if he can remain healthy.

Fantasy Analysis | 1395959906
Rating Joakim Soria among closers
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

For most of spring training, we've assumed Neftali Feliz would win the closer role in Texas, so you're probably well versed in where he ranks in that now fictional scenario.

Joakim Soria is the guy. Feliz's struggle to regain his velocity after Tommy John surgery (or really, after winter ball since he was throwing hard then) has condemned him to the minors, where he won't be able to bail out Soria if things go south early.

Of course, I don't expect them to. He didn't get as much attention from the national media since the Royals weren't in contention at the time, but Soria was actually a more effective closer than Feliz prior to his own Tommy John surgery in 2012. In his first three years on the job, he compiled a 1.84 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 10.0 strikeouts per nine innings, averaging 38.3 saves per season. Those are Joe Nathan-type numbers.

Granted, Soria struggled in his fourth year, but as we know now, his elbow wasn't right. Still only 29 and coming off an impressive spring, I could see him performing like a top 10 reliever this year, especially pitching for the Rangers. It's not a slam dunk, of course, which is why I rank him 18th in Rotisserie leagues, but among late-round closers, he's the one to target.

Joakim Soria nails down closer spot for Rangers
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Rangers have named former Royals standout closer Joakim Soria as the winner of their battle for that role. He had been in competition with Neftali Feliz, who had struggled and is no guarantee for a roster spot.

Soria has not served as a closer since 2011. He peaked with Kansas City from 2008 to 2010 when he converted 115 of 124 save opportunities.

The Rangers are seeking to find the same effectiveness at that spot that Joe Nathan brought. He has since signed with Detroit.
