Fantasy Analysis | 1406243824
Joakim Soria might be worth stashing
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Granted, he wasn't getting the most consistent save opportunities in Texas, but if you play in a league where every save matters (which is typically the case in Rotisserie formats), Joakim Soria's move to Detroit is a punch in the gut.

Mostly because the Tigers say they intend to stick with Joe Nathan as their closer. Sad face.

But let's get real here: Nathan has been terrible and has shown no clear signs of a turnaround. Since blowing his third save May 21, the longest he's gone without allowing an earned run is four appearances. That won't cut it in the ninth inning.

Soria, meanwhile, was brilliant for the Rangers even if his low save total didn't reflect it. He compiled a 2.70 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 11.3 strikeouts per nine innings in 35 innings. His FIP, which estimates ERA with defense and luck removed from the equation, is 1.07.

The Rangers may intend to stick with Nathan as their closer, but if both he and Soria continue to do what they've been doing, the switch could come quickly. So if you play in a league where every save matters, maybe you just stash Soria for now.

Joakim Soria expected to pitch mostly in seventh inning
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said newly acquired reliever Joakim Soria will probably pitch mostly in the seventh inning, according to the Detroit Free Press.

However, he said Soria could help in the eighth or ninth inning when setup man Joba Chamberlain and closer Joe Nathan need a day off.

"The ability to get left-handed and right-handed hitters out is extremely important," Dombrowski said. "In our situation, where you are trying to win, I think it’s important to be able to do that. You don’t want to be switching every hitter with a different pitcher if you can avoid that. Soria has shown that he can get left-handed and right-handed hitters out very well. I think that’s important."

Tigers set to acquire Joakim Soria
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Tigers have traded for Rangers reliever Joakim Soria , according to 97.1 The Ticket. The move was confirmed by CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

The Tigers bullpen has struggled this season, collectively posting a 4.41 ERA. That is the fifth worst figure among major-league bullpens. Soria has been solid this season, posting a 2.70 ERA over 33 1/3 innings. It's unclear whether Soria will be used as the closer, or if he'll set up Joe Nathan.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rangers closer Joakim Soria earned his 17th save Monday, giving up one hit in a scoreless ninth inning to finish off his team's 4-2 win over the Yankees.

Soria has seen his name crop up in trade rumors as the trading deadline approaches, and he's turned in 4 2/3 scoreless innings in July without walking a batter. Soria owns a 2.51 ERA, 0.80 WHIP and 42:4 K:BB ratio in 32 1/3 innings.
