White Sox's Joakim Soria: Excelling with lower arm angle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soria credited his recent success out of the bullpen to lowering his arm in his delivery, James Fegan of The Athletic Chicago reports. "I started [with the new delivery] against Baltimore," Soria said Wednesday, recalling his May 24 appearance. "I had a long at-bat against Jonathan Schoop and I ended up dropping my arm to see what happened. He ended up grounding out to the shortstop so I thought, 'Alright, why not give it a try?' I've felt good from there and been using it."

The results certainly support Soria's confidence with the altered arm slot, as he's given up one unearned run and has scattered four hits and two walks while striking out 10 in 9.2 innings since that fateful appearance. More importantly for fantasy purposes, Soria's surge has seemingly allowed him to capture closing duties for the White Sox all to himself. All of Soria's last six appearances have come in save situations, with the right-hander closing the door each time without much stress. As a 34-year-old reliever with an expiring contract on a rebuilding team, Soria looks like a prime trade candidate as the July 31 deadline nears, so it seems rather unlikely that he'll retain closing duties for the White Sox throughout the season.

White Sox's Joakim Soria: Records one-out save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soria recorded the final out of Tuesday's win over the Indians to pick up his ninth save of the season.

Soria inherited a first-and-third situation with two outs in the ninth inning with the White Sox holding a 5-1 lead. He was able to get Yan Gomes to fly out to end the contest, notching his fifth save in the last eight days. Soria hasn't allowed an earned run in his last 11 outings and currently owns a 3.24 ERA.

White Sox's Joakim Soria: Not the lone closer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Rick Renteria said Soria has been "closing as of late," but later expressed confidence in others to close games, Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune reports. "(I wouldn't) say he's the only one we have to close, but he is doing a nice job. He could come in in the seventh and eighth as well if I see a matchup that suits him better," Renteria said.

Soria notched his fourth save in the last six games on Sunday and hasn't allowed an earned run in any of his last 10 outings. Nate Jones, who has also recorded saves this season, had another shaky outing Sunday, further strengthening Soria's grip on the job. Soria's recent string of success bodes well for the White Sox's chances of dealing him at the trade deadline. That possibility alone might be enough to keep him in the closer's role.

White Sox's Joakim Soria: Notches eighth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soria tossed a hitless inning Sunday against the Red Sox, allowing one walk while striking out two as he picked up the save.

Soria was able to slam the door after coming into the game with a three-run lead. He's been a dominant reliever for the White Sox of late, failing to surrender a run in 10 straight outings. Soria sports a 3.28 ERA and 1.18 WHIP with 29 strikeouts over 24.2 innings, and he's converted on eight of 10 save opportunities so far this season.

White Sox's Joakim Soria: Grabs seventh save Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soria worked a scoreless ninth inning Friday to record his seventh save of the season in a 1-0 win over the Red Sox.

He seems to have seized the closer role for the White Sox once again, converting three straight chances and posting a 0.00 ERA and 10:1 K:BB over his last nine appearances (9.1 innings). The team may simply be showcasing Soria for a trade, but if so the 34-year-old is doing his best to make himself more attractive to a contender looking to reinforce its bullpen.
