Soriano headed for MRI on sore elbow

Rafael Soriano will be sent for a precautionary MRI on his right elbow Wednesday after reporting some tenderness in his arm before Tuesday's game.

Soriano was not available to pitch the eighth in the Yankees' 3-1 win over the Royals, but Joba Chamberlain filled in with a perfect inning. Soriano went to manager Joe Girardi before the game and informed him of the issue, though after meeting with the team doctor, the reliever believes it won't be anything serious.

"I am going to do the MRI to make sure everything fine," Soriano said. "Maybe one or two days and I'll be back."

Soriano said the pain was not the same as what he felt in the time leading up to his 2008 elbow surgery.

He first felt sore after throwing in back-to-back games April 30 and May 1, so he asked for a day off during last week's Detroit series. Since pitching May 1, he has appeared in only two games.

Soriano is 1-1 with a 5.79 ERA in 15 appearances this season.

"I'll take one more day, do the exam, come back with everything fine in my mind," Soriano said.
