White Sox's Joakim Soria: Ready to close for White Sox if needed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The White Sox have not officially named Soria as the team's closer, but he's ready to fill that role if needed, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Juan Minaya finished 2017 as the White Sox's preferred ninth-inning option, but Soria's experience as a 33-year-old with 204 career saves may be enough for him to be named to the role before the end of spring training. Last season, Soria's 3.70 ERA was backed by solid peripherals (10.3 K/9, 3.2 BB/9, 0.16 HR/9), which suggest that he may have been somewhat unlucky while he delivered his most valuable season (according to fWAR) since 2010. If healthy, Nate Jones could also enter the mix to push Soria for the closer role.

White Sox's Joakim Soria: Traded to White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soria was traded to the White Sox on Thursday as part of a three-team deal.

The White Sox acquired Soria and Luis Avilan while sending minor-league infielder Jake Peter to the Dodgers. Soria's 3.70 ERA last season doesn't jump off the page, but his 2.23 FIP suggests that he may have been a bit unlucky. He posted his highest strikeout rate since 2013 (27.6 percent) but was undone by an atypically-low 67.1 percent left-on-base rate. The veteran reliever has past closing experience and could slot in as Chicago's ninth-inning arm to begin the 2018 campaign.

Royals' Joakim Soria: Comes off DL on Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Royals' Joakim Soria: Set for weekend activation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Royals' Joakim Soria: DL activation put on hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
