Royals' Joakim Soria: Collects win against Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soria (3-2) pitched a scoreless eighth inning to collect his third win of the season during Wednesday's victory over Boston.

The veteran reliever hasn't posted great numbers this season with a 3.41 ERA and 1.41 WHIP, but his supporting numbers are spectacular: 11.8 K/9, 60.5 groundball percentage and 1.74 FIP. Soria's been hurt by an unsustainably high .377 BABIP and has the potential to be a serviceable fantasy asset going forward. He's also likely next in line for saves if Kelvin Herrera is injured or losses the closer job.

Royals' Joakim Soria: Takes second loss Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soria (2-2) failed to record an out while giving up four earned runs on three hits, two walks and a wild pitch in Monday's 10-7 loss to the Tigers. He was charged with his fourth blown save of the season as well.

Called on to open the eighth and preserve a 7-6 lead, Soria promptly yielded a single to Justin Upton and walked Nick Castellanos before allowing a run-scoring hit to Alex Presley. The latter then came home on a wild pitch that Soria uncorked to Jose Iglesias, and after being relieved two batters later, he subsequently saw two more runs go on his ledger courtesy of the RBI single that Matt Strahm yielded to Miguel Cabrera. The 33-year-old right-hander has generally been effective as a set-up option with eight holds, but a pair of four-run outings have served to tarnish his overall body of work.

Royals' Joakim Soria: Nails down fourth hold Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soria allowed a hit and walked one over an inning to earn his fourth hold of the season Sunday against Baltimore.

Sporting a 12.2 K/9 over his first 17 games, Soria certainly looks nothing like the man who worked his way to a career-worst 4.05 ERA last year. Over his last seven appearances (seven innings), the right-hander has allowed just one walk while posting an 11:1 K:BB. The 32-year-old has been lights out in May as he continues reestablishing himself as one of the best setup relievers in baseball.

Royals' Joakim Soria: Blows lead in Saturday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soria was charged with his third blown save of the season Saturday after allowing a run on three hits in the 3-1 loss to Cleveland.

The Royals were clinging to a 1-0 lead when Soria got the call. Just one out away from escaping, the righty gave up a game-tying RBI single to Jason Kipnis. Soria's 2.63 ERA doesn't look too shabby, but his conversion rate in high-leverage situation has been poor thus far.

Royals' Joakim Soria: Scoreless streak explodes Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soria was charged with his first loss and second blown save after giving up four runs (three earned) on three hits and a walk over 0.2 innings Friday against the Twins.

It was a nightmare ending to what was a perfect stretch of games to open 2017. Entering Friday's affair, Soria owned a flawless 0.00 ERA over nine appearances this season. However, the right-hander was undone by the Twins after an unusual delay. Miguel Sano fouled a ball off the facemask of home-plate umpire CB Bucknor, who was shaken and had to be replaced behind the plate. Soria had to stand around -- in chilly weather -- and wait for 10 minutes before play resumed. On the first pitch following the pause, Sano belted a two-run double that opened the flood gates. Whether the delay affected Soria is debatable, but he was due for a bump in the road at some point anyway. Chalk this one up as that hiccup and move forward with confidence.
