Rafael Soriano (RP, CHC) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Stash in Deeper Leagues

OWNED IN: 12% of Fleaflicker Leagues

ANALYSIS: A few weeks ago, Rafael Soriano was signed to a minor league deal by the Cubs. Today, it was announced that he will be called up to the major league roster. Will Soriano be the closer immediately? Most likely not. Will he eventually take over as the Cubs closer? It's certainly possible. Either way, Soriano has a lot of closer experience and he will most likely be used in high leverage situations, whether it's as a setup man or even as the team's closer. Manager Joe Maddon has switched his closers a few times this year, between Hector Rondon, Pedro Strop, and more recently Jason Motte, so it's certainly possible the Soriano picks up some saves in the 2nd half. It's still to be seen how this will all shake out, but if you're looking for some saves potential or holds off the waiver wire, add Soriano and enjoy the ride.
