Soria (oblique) was activated from the 10-day DL prior to Saturday's game against the Indians. Soria has been out since mid-August while recovering from a strained oblique, but he should be near full health after spending the past couple days with his family while his wife gave birth to their third child. Since he could've rejoined the club earlier this week, it seems likely that he'll be able to head right back into the fray and return to his normal spot in the bullpen moving forward.
Soria (oblique) is expected to rejoin the team in Cleveland and be activated, The Associated Press reports. The setup man was scheduled to return from the DL last week, but plans changed when he returned to Arizona to be with his wife for the birth of their third child. It may take an appearance or two for Soria to find his rhythm, but he's expected to rejoin the bullpen rotation immediately upon his return.
Soria (oblique) won't be activated from the disabled list until next weekend as he has returned home to attend to family matters, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports. Soria was scheduled to return from the DL on Monday, but his activation will be put on hold for the time being. Based on Flanagan's report, it sounds like he'll return to the Royals' bullpen during their weekend series against the scorching hot Indians, at which point he'll likely join the team's committee of closers.
Manager Ned Yost said Soria (oblique) could return from the 10-day disabled list Monday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports. Soria has been sidelined since mid-August with a left oblique strain, but it appears the veteran reliever is close to rejoining the big-league bullpen. When Soria does return, Yost said he would see save opportunities as part of the Royals' closer committee. The 33-year-old compiled a 3.96 ERA and 59 strikeouts in 50 innings before landing on the shelf.
Soria (oblique) is scheduled to throw off the mound Wednesday, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports. Soria has now been sidelined for nearly three weeks with his strained oblique. Injuries of this nature often take a month or more to recover from, so it's good to see that Soria is now able to advance to mound work. He still has some hurdles to leap before rejoining the Royals' bullpen, but it appears that the reliever is making notable progress. He remains without a firm timetable for return.
