Tigers' Joakim Soria earns 15th save Wednesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/27/15) Tigers closer Joakim Soria picked up his 15th save on Wednesday, giving up one hit and one walk while striking out two in a scoreless ninth inning to slam the door on his team's 3-2 win over the A's.
Soria opened the ninth by surrendering a single and then issued a one-out walk before striking out the final two batters he faced to earn the save. He's given up at least one hit in five straight outings but has given up just one run during that stretch. Soria owns a 1.27 ERA and 17:4 K:BB ratio in 21 1/3 innings.

|(5/27/15) Tigers closer Joakim Soria saved a win over Oakland with a four-out performance on Tuesday.
Soria earned his 13th save in 14 opportunities. He stranded the tying run on base in the eighth inning, then allowed a two-out double in the ninth before stranding him as well.
Soria has allowed at least one hit in his last four outings, but three have resulted in saves. Tuesday was his first four-out night since May 7.
Tigers RP Joakim Soria blows save on Thursday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/21/15) Tigers closer Joakim Soria blew his first save of the year on Thursday, but the Tigers rallied back to beat the Astros 6-5 in 11 innings. Soria allowed a game-tying pinch-hit home run to Preston Tucker in the top of the ninth.
"It was a ball outside of the plate," Soria said, per MLB.com. "The guy hit an opposite-way homer. You just tip your cap. Good for him. He hit the ball well. That's what you want. You don't want him to pull the ball in that situation."
This is the first time Soria has been scored against since April 26. He is now 13-for-14 in save opportunities this season.
Tigers closer Joakim Soria earns 13th save of the season
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/20/15) Tigers closer Joakim Soria worked a nearly perfect ninth inning on Wednesday in Detroit's 5-2 win over the Brewers, earning his 13th save of the season.
Soria needed 18 pitches to get through the inning after allowing a leadoff double to Aramis Ramirez. He settled down, however, and forced two consecutive groundouts before getting Elian Herrera to lineout to left field to end the game.
Soria lowered his ERA to 1.00 in 18 innings of work this season.
Tigers closer Joakim Soria allows two hits, still nails down save
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/16/15) Closer Joakim Soria (S, 12) gave up two singles in the bottom of the 10th inning but was able to preserve the Tigers' 6-5 lead for a save Saturday against the Cardinals.
Matt Holiday got a leadoff single off Soria, but was gunned down trying to stretch it into a double.
Matt Adams added a pinch-hit single in the frame but Soria fanned the next two batters for his 12th save in as many attempts.
Soria has now gone eight innings without allowing a run.
|2014 summary: Joakim Soria began the season as the Rangers' closer, and he improved greatly over his shaky 2013 return from Tommy John surgery. He saved 17 games in 19 attempts with a 2.70 ERA before he was traded to the Tigers in July, whereupon he moved into a setup role. Soria did struggle in his 13 appearances with the Tigers, posting a 4.91 ERA with one save and one hold, though he spent a month on the disabled list with a strained left oblique.|
Playing time status: Soria will be back in a setup role for the Tigers this season, but he will probably be first in line to close if Joe Nathan struggles again.
2015 outlook: The 3.25 ERA Soria registered in 2014 doesn't adequately reflect how dramatic his comeback was. If not for the .316 batting average he allowed on grounders, which was probably not all of his own doing, Soria's ERA and even his 0.99 WHIP would have been lower. At this point in their respective careers, Soria is probably better suited to closing than Nathan, and he's one of the better potential saves targets to pursue once the established closers have already been taken.
