Soriano (elbow) was placed on the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Soriano was selected by the Pirates with the first pick of the Rule 5 draft in December, but he'll begin the season on the injured list after undergoing Tommy John surgery in February 2020. The move will clear a spot on the 40-man roster for southpaw Tyler Anderson. Prior to his surgery, Soriano recorded a 2.55 ERA and 84:48 K:BB over 77.2 innings at the Low-A level.
