(8/5/14) Tigers pitcher Joakim Soria picked up a win Tuesday, tossing a 1-2-3 11th inning in his team's 4-3, 12-inning win over the Yankees.
Soria (2-4) didn't record a strikeout in the appearance. He's now turned in back-to-back scoreless outings after struggling in the wake of the trade that sent him to Detroit. Soria owns a 3.65 ERA and 45:6 K:BB ratio in 37 innings.
|Joakim Soria rocked in second Tigers appearance |

(7/29/14) Tigers pitcher Joakim Soria had trouble adjusting to his new role Tuesday, giving up four earned runs on six hits in just one-third of an inning in his team's 11-4 loss to the White Sox.
Soria surrendered an unearned run in his first outing with his new team before getting blown up Tuesday. He surrendered his first two home runs of the season in the poor performance. Soria owns a 3.71 ERA and 43:5 K:BB ratio in 34 innings.
|Most people assume Neftali Feliz will reclaim the closer role for the Rangers provided he's no worse for wear following Tommy John surgery, which appeared to be the case in September. After all, he was everything they wanted in a closer in the two years prior to his failed move to the starting rotation. But those people may be overlooking Joakim Soria, who some would argue was an even better closer for the Royals for an even longer period prior to his Tommy John surgery in 2012. He also returned before the end of 2013, making 26 appearances to Feliz's six, and though he struggled with his command, his 10.6 strikeouts per nine innings show the stuff was there. The Rangers are more familiar with Feliz and have more invested in him, so he's rightfully considered the front-runner. But particularly in AL-only leagues, where drafting middle relievers is standard fare, you shouldn't count out Soria. You may just luck into an easy 30 saves.
