Player Outlook
Jose Soriano emerged as a key piece of the Angels' bullpen after his first big league promotion last June. The 25-year-old right-hander posted a solid 3.64 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 56:23 K:BB over 42 innings. The Dominican native actually finished second on the team with 15 holds despite appearing in just 38 games. Soriano features four pitches, headlined by a curveball that he threw 41 percent of the time with great success. His sinker and fastball clocked in between 96 and 99 miles per hour, while his slider generated the 2nd-highest whiff rate in the league (62.5 percent) for that pitch type despite not throwing it often. With a 30 percent strikeout rate and 50-plus percent groundball rate, there's a lot to like in Soriano's profile, but he'll need to work on his control and limit his free passes (12.4 percent walk rate) to remain in the high-leverage mix.

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: Lands on injured list

    Soriano was placed on the 15-day injured list with an abdomen infection Thursday. Soriano was scratched from his start Monday and was expected to miss another turn through the rotation. It was originally anticipated that he would avoid the injured list, so it's unclear how long he may be sidelined. The move was retroactive to Monday, so Soriano will be eligible to return in early July.

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: Dealing with infection

    Soriano (abdomen) is dealing with an infection according to manager Ron Washington, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports. Soriano had his turn in the rotation skipped Monday due to abdominal pain and he's expected to be skipped again as he nurses an infection. Manager Ron Washington said Tuesday there's not a concern that Soriano will need to be placed on the injured list, so he'll likely be back before the end of June.

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: Scratched from start

    Soriano was scratched from his scheduled start Monday against the Brewers due to lower abdominal pain. Soriano was expected to toe the rubber for the series opener with Milwaukee, but he'll now be forced to take a seat. The severity of his injury is unknown, but in the meantime, Zach Plesac was called up from Triple-A Salt Lake to make a spot start in Soriano's stead. Soriano had a 2.90 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 37 strikeouts in 49.2 innings over his last eight starts. He has gone six-plus innings in four straight starts and boasts an elite 60.1 percent groundball rate on the season.

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: Efficient in win

    Soriano (4-5) allowed two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out five over eight-plus innings to earn the win over the Diamondbacks on Wednesday. This was the longest outing of Soriano's career, and it was a good one. He had plenty of run support early and pitched into the ninth inning, ending the start with 97 pitches (63 strikes). He's quickly becoming one of the Angels' most reliable starters, having covered at least six innings in five straight appearances. He's at a 3.48 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 60:28 K:BB through 72.1 innings over 14 appearances (12 starts) this year. The 25-year-old's strikeout numbers have taken a hit from where they were last year when he was a reliever, but there's still value in a pitcher that can eat innings. He's projected to make his next start at home versus the Brewers.

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: Allows four runs in no-decision

    Soriano allowed four runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out three over six innings in a no-decision versus the Mariners on Friday. Soriano left the game in line for the loss, but Jo Adell's grand slam off the bench spared the right-hander from a second straight defeat. Soriano has allowed four runs in five of his outings this year, including three of his last five starts. He's at a 3.86 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 52:25 K:BB over 58.1 innings across 12 appearances (10 starts) on the season. The 25-year-old is projected to make his next start at home versus the Padres.

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: Fans eight in loss

    Soriano (2-5) took the loss against the Guardians on Saturday, allowing four runs on four hits and one walk while striking out eight over six innings. Soriano cruised through the first two frames before failing to retire three of the first five batters he faced in the third, eventually leading to four runs coming across for Cleveland. He would, however, surrender just one infield single over his final three innings of work while striking out five over that span. Soriano's eight strikeouts on the night marked a season high and he's now gone at least six innings in three of his last five starts. It also marked the first time in his last four starts that he didn't walk multiple batters.

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: Excellent in win over Rangers

    Soriano (2-4) allowed one run on five hits and two walks while striking out five over 7.2 innings to earn the win Sunday over the Rangers. Soriano gave up a solo home run to Corey Seager in the fourth inning, but that was it. The Angels rallied ahead in the seventh to help Soriano earn his second win in 10 appearances (eight starts) this year. The right-hander has given up just five runs over 23.2 innings across his four appearances in May while posting a 20:8 K:BB in that span. For the year, he's at a 3.30 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 43:22 K:BB through 46.1 innings. The walk rate remains a concern, but Soriano is showing improvement in that regard. He's projected to make his next start at home versus the Guardians.

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: Fires 5.1 scoreless frames

    Soriano tossed 5.1 scoreless innings, allowing two hits and three walks while striking out six batters in a no-decision against St. Louis on Monday. Soriano allowed just two baserunners through five frames before running into trouble in the sixth, when the Cardinals loaded the bases against him with one out. The right-hander was lifted at that point, and Adam Cimber was able to come to the rescue by inducing an inning-ending double play. As such, Soriano was credited with his second scoreless outing over his past three starts, though he lost an opportunity for a victory due to a late collapse by the Angels' bullpen. Soriano has shown flashes of excellence but has been inconsistent since moving into the rotation April 10 -- in seven starts since that date, he's given up one or zero earned runs on four occasions but has yielded exactly four earned runs in each of the other three starts.

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: Secures first win

    Soriano (1-4) earned the win Friday against the Guardians, surrendering five hits and a walk while striking out three batters across six scoreless innings. Friday was a much-needed bounce-back outing for Soriano, who gave up four runs in 1.2 innings during his previous start against Minnesota. He rarely found himself in trouble versus Cleveland aside from the fifth inning, when the Guardians had runners on second and third base with one out, but a well-timed groundout followed by a walk and a strikeout allowed Soriano to maintain his shutout. He'll carry a 3.77 ERA and 1.29 WHIP heading into his next projected start Wednesday in Pittsburgh.

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: Rocked early in loss

    Soriano (0-4) took the loss against the Twins on Saturday, allowing four runs on three hits and four walks over 1.2 innings while striking out one. Soriano struggled right out of the gate, allowing two walks and a hit in the opening frame while also hitting Ryan Jeffers with a pitch. Things only got worse for the right-hander in the second, when he beaned the leadoff man and managed to retire only two of the next six batters he faced before being relieved by Jose Suarez. It marked the shortest outing of the season for Soriano and the third time in which he's allowed at least three runs. He's also issued three or more walks in three consecutive starts.

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: Effectively wild Tuesday

    Soriano came away with a no-decision in Tuesday's 7-6 extra-innings loss to the Rays, allowing one run on one hit and five walks over five innings. He struck out six. Making his second start of the season, Soriano threw just 48 of 90 pitches for strikes, but he generated 28 called or swinging strikes and the only hit against him was a fourth-inning single. The right-hander was in line to collect his first win of the season, but Carlos Estevez blew the save in the ninth. Soriano has a 12:5 K:BB through nine innings since moving into the rotation, and with Chase Silseth (elbow) not expected back until early May, he'll get at least a couple more turns. Soriano lines up to make his next start this coming weekend in Cincinnati.

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: Struggles in first start

    Soriano (0-2) took the loss Wednesday, giving up four runs on six hits over four innings as the Angels fell 4-2 to the Rays. He struck out six without walking a batter. Tampa Bay jumped on Soriano early, scoring three runs in the first inning and tacking on one more in the second, but the right-hander settled down before exiting his first start of the season after 72 pitches (49 strikes). He generated an encouraging 24 called or swinging strikes though, and the 25-year-old should have shown enough to get a longer look in the rotation. His next outing is likely to be a rematch with the Rays early next week in Tampa.

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: May be pressed into bullpen role

    With Robert Stephenson (shoulder) uncertain to be ready for game action by Opening Day, the Angels are considering whether to move Soriano to a relief role, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Soriano had been stretching out as a starter this spring, but Stephenson's shoulder issue may shift that plan, at least temporarily. Soriano posted a respectable 3.64 ERA in 42 innings as a reliever last season, though he had been primarily a starter in the minors prior to undergoing revision Tommy John surgery in 2021. Angels manager Ron Washington indicated late last week that the team still wants to see what Soriano can do as a starter and suggested that a move to the bullpen would be to "take care of need" before "thinking long term."

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: Notches hold Saturday

    Soriano earned a hold against the Mets on Saturday, allowing one hit and striking out two batters over two scoreless innings. Soriano had worked exactly one frame in each of his past seven outings coming into Saturday, but he was tasked with covering two against the Mets with the Angels hanging onto a narrow lead. The rookie reliever was up to the task, retiring the side in order in the seventh inning and working around a hit-by-pitch and a single to keep New York off the scoreboard in the eighth. Soriano has emerged as a key piece of the Angels' bullpen since being called up in early June, posting a 2.81 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 44:20 K:BB over 32 innings while frequently pitching in high-leverage situations. He ranks second on the team with 13 holds on the campaign.

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: Yet to be scored upon

    Soriano earned a hold against the Rangers on Thursday, striking out two batters in a perfect inning. Soriano got the call in the eighth frame in a close contest, emphasizing how quickly he's ascended the bullpen pecking order. Part of that rise is due to injuries to Ben Joyce (elbow) and Matt Moore (oblique), but Soriano has certainly earned his manager's trust as well. The rookie right-hander has yet to surrender a run in six big-league appearances, yielding just one hit and posting a 10:2 K:BB over seven innings. He's picked up five holds in those six outings, so he's worth a look in fantasy leagues that count that category, especially while Moore and Joyce remain out.

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: Recalled to MLB bullpen

    Soriano was recalled Saturday from Double-A Rocket City, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports. Soriano will get his first taste of MLB action at age 24, presumably operating as a low-leverage bullpen option for the Angels. He had pitched to a 4.24 ERA with 31 strikeouts through 23.1 innings this season at the Double-A level.

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: Sent down to minor-league camp

    The Angels optioned Soriano to minor-league camp Saturday. Soriano is a member of the Angels' 40-man roster but wasn't a serious candidate to make the Opening Day club as a pitcher that hasn't advanced past Low-A so far. The right-hander will likely report to Double-A Rocket City and could help the Angels bullpen at some point down the line if he shows the ability to command his arsenal on a more consistent basis.
