Report: Nationals unlikely to pick up option on RP Soriano
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(10/17/14) The Nationals will probably decline to exercise their $14 million option on former closer Rafael Soriano, who saved 75 games over the past two seasons, the Washington Post reported.
Soriano performed well in the first half of this season before a collapse forced the team to replace him in that role with Drew Storen.

|(9/23/14) Nationals closer Drew Storen earned his 10th save Tuesday, giving up one hit and striking out two in his team's 4-2 win over the Mets.
Storen needed 25 pitches to convert the save opportunity, giving him his highest workload since the end of July. His scoreless streak is now up to 18 innings and 21 appearances. Storen owns a 1.16 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 44:11 K:BB ratio in 54 1/3 innings.
Drew Storen picks up ninth save

|(9/20/14) Nationals closer Drew Storen picked up his ninth save Saturday against the Marlins.
Storen entered with a one-run lead, and got himself in trouble before closing things out. With one out, Storen gave up two straight singles. With the tying run on second base, Storen managed a game-ending double play.
Drew Storen makes extremely quick work of Marlins
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(9/19/14) Nationals reliever Drew Storen made extremely quick work of the Marlins Friday night in Miami, needing only six pitches to retire the side in order to close out a 3-2 victory. He has converted 8 of 11 save chances, with a 1.20 ERA and a 0.96 WHIP over 52 1/3 innings of relief.
|Drew Storen was relegated to setup work in 2013 when the Nationals made the surprising move to sign veteran Rafael Soriano to handle the closer's job. It was a disappointing development since Storen had proven to be a capable closer. Though, signing Soriano seemed to be the right move in the end since Storen struggled mightily in '13. It got so bad that he was removed from high-leverage situations and eventually demoted to the minors in late July when his ERA rose to 5.95. Though, the demotion to the minors proved beneficial, as Storen returned a changed pitcher in mid-August. He finished the season with a 1-0 record, one save, 10 holds and a 1.40 ERA in his final 21 appearances. Storen finished with 24 holds, which trailed only Tyler Clippard's team-leading 33 holds. Soriano is still under contract, so Storen will once again be a setup reliever in 2014. Leave him for deeper formats and leagues that reward for holds on Draft Day.
