DateQuestionAnswer
2013-11-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)Ben, in answer to your question of my question.. Rafael Soriano last year. I still concede your point re: Benoit :-) So, if you're Dave Dombrowski, how do you fix this pen?
(DetroitDale from Tallahassee (eternal spring training))
Even Soriano didn't get an AAV that high, and at Benoit's age, I doubt he gets a big multi-year deal (maybe two years). I don't have Tigers-specific bullpen recommendations at the moment, but Sam has written a couple excellent articles on how you build a good bullpen on the cheap (or how the A's did, specifically) and how inconsistent bullpen performance is from season to season. (Ben Lindbergh)
2013-10-30 12:00:00 (link to chat)Matthew, Have Uehara,Balfour, and Cook,is there chance all three could close next year?
(vampires from michigan)
Absolutely. There's a chance you could close next year. Or me. Well, not me. But you! Just look at who was closing a few seasons ago. Or, heck, I'll tell you. In 2010, the top five in saves were:

1. Brian Wilson
2. Heath Bell
3. Rafael Soriano
4. Joakim Soria
5. Matt Capps

I'm sure all those guys will get shots to close and I'm sure some of them will falter (or get injured) because some of them always falter (or get injured) and will get replaced. (Matthew Kory)
2013-08-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Rafael Soriano's 4-seam velocity (from Brooks Baseball) and his K/9 over the last 5 years: 93.36 - 12.1 92.99 - 8.2 92.70 - 8.2 92.76 - 9.2 91.80 - 6.9 Is he pretty much done as a top flight closer? That velocity aint coming back, is it?
(Charlie from Bethesda)
was he ever top flight? And, no, he is what he is -- a decent reliever with closer makeup on the downside of his career. (Harry Pavlidis)
2013-08-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Rafael Soriano's 4-seam fastball average velocity has seen a big and pretty steady decline from 93.36 mph in 2009 down to 91.80 mph this year. His K/9 has dropped similarly. At 33, is this a sign that he's just getting old and probably won't be a great reliever anymore?
(Charlie from Bethesda, MD)
yep, he's aging. And cutting the ball a lot, too. (Harry Pavlidis)
2013-08-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)I guess my question on Rafael Soriano was whether or not that fastball decline is a huge red flag, or if we shouldn't read too much into it.
(Charlie from Bethesda, MD)
no, not a red flag. Just a fact. it does tell you he doesn't have the power game, so you can read plenty into that in terms of expectations. (Harry Pavlidis)
2013-04-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)How do I value Addison Reed if I just started a dynasty rebuild? I know closers should be the first thing to go in a rebuild, but I can't help but believe he's relatively stable and likely to help me when I compete again in 2-3 years. Thanks
(JoeTinker from Chicago)
Here is a list of all closers who recorded 25 or more saves in 2010: Brian Wilson (48), Heath Bell (47), Rafael Soriano (45), Joakim Soria (43), Matt Capps (42), Neftali Feliz (40), Francisco Cordero (40), Carlos Marmol (38), Billy Wagner (37), Jonathan Papelbon (37), Kevin Gregg (37), Mariano Rivera (33), David Aardsma (31), Juan Oviedo (30), Bobby Jenks (27), Ryan Franklin (27), Brad Lidge (27), Jose Valverde (26), Francisco Rodriguez (25) and Andrew Bailey (25). (Bret Sayre)
2013-01-14 14:00:00 (link to chat)When do you see the "Draft Pick Three" signing? (I am talking about Kyle Lohse, Michael Bourn, and Rafael Soriano).
(Steve G. from STL)
I'll say Lohse and Bourn sign at the end of this month and Soriano signs in early February. (Ben Lindbergh)
2013-01-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Rafael Soriano and Michael Bourn are still unsigned. When will we see some action on either front?
(Shaun from Redwood)
Your guess is as good as mine, I'd imagine things will pick up steam shortly, but I'm not sure. (Josh Shepardson)
2012-12-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who is closing for your TIgers this year: Bruce Rendon, Rafael Soriano, or the field? And if not Soriano, where does he close this year?
(Frank from Seattle)
Gimme the field. Rondon is going to be given a shot according to the organization, but he's 21 with 8 Triple-A innings under his extremely stretched out belt (bc he's fat). (Paul Sporer)
2012-09-24 14:30:00 (link to chat)Any explanation on why Rays always to get hits on pick-ups and trades that don't seem great/good at on-set and turn into gems in long-run? Fernando Rodney and Jeff Keppinger are doing quite well in unexpected roles for them. It seems Rays always find gold in what now should be called "The Yearly Rays Reliever Reclamation Project"(Al Reyes, Juan Cruz, Joaquin Benoit, Rafael Soriano, Kyle Farnsworth, Fernando Rodney)
(jlarsen from chicago)
I think some of it is just great big-league scouting and statistical analysis, but a lot of it is trial and error, too. The Rays are set up in such a way that they HAVE to sign a bunch of those guys, and while a lot of them will work because the Rays are good at what they do, a lot will fail because they're inherently gambles. They haven't had a lot of luck with veteran catchers the last couple years, and there was that whole Pat Burrell thing. (Bill Parker)
2011-01-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Where in the world does Rafael Soriano end up? Setting up for Mo? Or is mystery team about to get busy again?
(Rob from Alaska)
I wish I knew. It seems as if he's being heavily punished for being a Type A. Otherwise he would have landed about five times by now. (Steven Goldman)
2010-12-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thank you for the chat, Eric. Where do you see Rafael Soriano eventually ending up? Should the Angels go after him after they secure Beltre's services?
(Dennis from LA)
I was going to say Angels. I could also see the White Sox swooping in and using Soriano as their closer. (Eric Seidman)
2010-12-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)If you're a borderline playoff team with bullpen issues like the Angels, how much is it worth spending on Rafael Soriano? Do you think he will maintain his effectiveness going forward?
(Dennis from LA)
I'm a little nervous about the reduced strikeout rates, but he's still a great reliever. I think it's worth it to a team with bullpen issues to sign one guy like that to help anchor things, especially when that team has the budget the Angels could. (Marc Normandin)
2010-07-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)RE: your point above about locking in your best pitcher to the ninth inning. That's why White Sox fans shouldn't get too worked up about Jenks right now. Putz and Thornton are being brought in for the tough situations in the 7th and 8th innings anyway.
(Clint from Chicago)
Exactly right, and exactly the example I like to use. The closer needs to be very good too, so I'm not saying that Lance Cormier should close ahead of Rafael Soriano or anything like that. This wouldn't be as much of an issue if someone brought back the two inning save. (Ken Funck)
2010-03-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you help me choose a one keepers from this list: Jason Bay $12, Josh Hamilton $6, Rafael Soriano $4, Julio Borbon $4. Thanks.
(hhbliss from san francisco )
How did you get all of those guys at those prices? $12 is a steal for Bay. Hamilton's price is also awesome, but if he doesn't bounce back you'll regret not taking Bay. (Marc Normandin)
2010-02-17 16:00:00 (link to chat)Tommy, Who are some players that you hope to add to all your fantasy teams this year (mid to late round)? Thanks, Dan
(dandaman from Sea Cliff)
I got a couple questions to this effect. I think Cody Ross remains underrated, especially if you play in a league with individual outfield positions. I think Rafael Soriano is a great closer for where he is going in drafts. I'm big on a bounce back from Jay Bruce as well. (Tommy Bennett)
2010-02-17 16:00:00 (link to chat)I don't get it, Tommy. I just don't get it. I can't wrap my head around how bloggers, writers and everybody deems that the Rays are the best 3rd place team in baseball and have to have luck, rather than just the talent on roster, to break the grasps of Boston/New York for the #1 or #2 spot in the division. Rays biggest downfall in 2009 was the lack of a "true closer" when Troy Percival went down and Jason Isringhausen forgot his arm wasn't what it used to be. JP Howell was serviceable but a sudden over-use seen him getting knocked around and getting shut-down by season's end. Even with a 11-game losing streak, which is a season-killer for any team, the team won 84 games. If the Rays won 6 or 7 of those games, they would've been a 90-win team. So what do the Rays do this offseason? They use the money that trading Kazmir and Iwamura netted them and dealt the prospect received in Iwamura's trade for a "true closer" in Rafael Soriano. That trade/signing moves every Rays reliever into the spot that they should be filling and would be most u
(jlarsen from Chicago)
Soriano probably adds a net of two wins or so. Assuming for sake of argument that the Rays were a 90 win (true talent) team last year, I think you can justify a 92 win estimate for them this year. But 92 wins doesn't win the AL East 99 times out of 100.

Beyond that, they just don't have the starting pitching of the Red Sox or Yankees. At every slot in the rotation they lose to both those teams. Maybe Hellickson can start consistently this year, maybe Davis is great right away. But for my money, I think those things aren't all likely to happen. In any other division in baseball, the Rays are the prohibitive favorites. (Tommy Bennett)
2009-09-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)I was thinking of a prospect with a big bat who is close to the majors.
(Jake H from Kansas City)
I think the problem you would run into with such a proposal is how teams are seemingly starting to realize that, while perhaps not ANYONE could be a closer, turning a setup guy into one or a 7th inning guy into one might be more wise than shelling out $10-12 mil for someone with a 4-yr track record of success. I'm thinking specifically about the Braves in this case... like I wouldn't trade Heyward for Soria even if Rafael Soriano/Mike Gonzalez aren't traditional closers. I still think Soria could be traded for 2-3 good, not great pieces better than the likes of guys like Mark Teahen, but not one big guy that will just transform the franchise. (Eric Seidman)
2008-07-21 15:00:00 (link to chat)Any idea when the Bermuda Triangle is going to give up and unswallow Rafael Soriano? The guy's been MIA for quite a while now with nary a word.
(Trent from Atlanta)
I left him out of UTK at the last second today. He's due to be activated today after a "great pen" on Saturday. Haven't gotten the final word, but he'd help that pen and maybe get some save chances. (Will Carroll)
2008-01-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for taking questions! To expand on the "Soviet" recruiting methods, would it behoove an MLB team to screen all of its draftees for pitching potential? Troy Percival and Rafael Soriano come to mind as successful converts. Maybe the Tigers would find that they could use the strong arm of Brandon Inge for occasional mop-up duty as part of his super-utility role.
(havybeaks from Michigan)
I think it's done, kind of. Not in any sort of systematic way, but organizations know who has a cannon at short and they know who pitched in HS. (Interesting thought ... Latin players tend to be classified one way or the other quickly while American players tend to go both ways through HS and even college. Is there an advantage to either side?) (Will Carroll)
