|Joakim Soria's sim game goes well |

|Joakim Soria able to throw off mound Wednesday |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(9/3/14) Tigers pitcher Joakim Soria was able to throw off a mound Wednesday, according to mlive.com.
He threw 25 pitches during the session. Soria plans to do the same thing Friday. If Soria can get through that without any issues, he could move closer to a simulated game.
|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.
