Royals' Joakim Soria: Will get rest between outings
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Royals manager Ned Yost said he'll monitor Soria's usage more carefully, giving the reliever more rest between appearances, Rustin Dodd of the Kansas City Star reports.

Soria's had a tough week, blowing two saves while pitching on zero days rest. His ERA in such situations this season is 4.26 over 12.2 innings and even worse on one day of rest (4.57, 21.2 innings). As such, Yost is considering at least two days of rest for Soria, who has a 0.98 ERA with 25 strikes over 18.1 innings when pitching with two days rest. "You go back and look at his numbers, specifically two days off in between, they're fantastic," Yost said. "Where he's run into trouble in the last three weeks has been times where I've used him back-to-back."

Royals' Joakim Soria: Could be in line for save chances
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Soria could see save chances with Wade Davis (forearm) landing on the 15-day DL on Tuesday.

Manager Ned Yost's claim that "everyone moves up a slot" with Davis out, per Rustin Dodd of the Kansas City Star, would seem to hint at Kelvin Herrera getting most of the chances in the ninth inning. However, Yost would not commit to Herrera and suggested he will mix and match in the later innings. Soria is striking batters out at a career-low 21.4-percent clip and his walk rate is pushing 10 percent, but he does have 203 career saves under his belt. Davis hopes to return after the minimum 15 days.

Royals' Joakim Soria: Blows second save of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soria (2-2) only lasted two-thirds of an inning, allowing two hits and two runs to blow his second save of the year Thursday against Cleveland.

With Wade Davis unavailable, Soria was called to seal the deal, but he failed to deliver after he allowed the game-winning run on a sac fly to Mike Napoli. Soria has been effective (for the most part) as a late-inning reliever, but he's blown two of his three save chances this season. His 3.81 ERA and 1.26 WHIP aren't exactly sexy, either.

Royals' Joakim Soria: Notches Saturday victory with scoreless relief effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soria (2-1) pitched two innings of perfect ball in Saturday's 2-1 victory over the White Sox, striking out one.

The 32-year-old stymied the struggling White Sox, notching his fifth straight scoreless outing. Soria has been largely effective in May after a rough April, posting a 1-0 record, 1.59 ERA and 0.97 WHIP over 11.1 innings during the month.

Royals' Joakim Soria: Gives up one hit in scoreless inning
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Soria gave up one hit in a scoreless inning of work in a 4-2 win over Atlanta on Sunday.

Soria has now pitched to a 1.93 ERA in his last nine outings after a sluggish start that saw him accumulate a 7.00 ERA until April 25. While his recent outings seem to indicate he's back to his effective self, Soria has limited fantasy value in smaller fantasy leagues as long as Wade Davis holds Kansas City's closing duties. However, if Davis goes down with an injury, Soria would be a likely candidate to assume ninth-inning work, considering his lengthy experience in that role.
