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.

Nationals might leave Rafael Soriano off NLDS roster?

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/2/14) Nationals manager Matt Williams declined to talk Thursday about the postseason roster status of reliever Rafael Soriano, who was replaced as the team's closer in early September by Drew Storen.

"We'll determine the final roster when we get out of this workout," Williams said, per The Washington Post.

Rafael Soriano helps Drew Storen's chances

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/16/14) Nationals right-hander Rafael Soriano, who recently took some time off to work on his mechanics, didn't help his chances of reclaiming the closer role in his second game back Monday at Atlanta.

While he entered in the ninth inning with the Nationals up by four -- sort of the closest thing to a save situation without being a save situation -- he needed Drew Storen, his replacement at closer, to bail him out with two outs and the tying run on base. In all, Soriano allowed two runs on two hits with one walk and one strikeout.

Manager Matt Williams recently said that having Soriano reclaim the closer role would be his best-case scenario, but as I wrote in the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, that scenario seems less likely now.

Frankly, I'd have no reservations about starting Storen in Fantasy, as good as he's been in the role.

Rafael Soriano working toward reclaiming ninth

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/15/14) Nationals reliever Rafael Soriano pitched a scoreless seventh inning Saturday at the Mets in his first appearance since taking some time off to work on his mechanics. According to the Washington Post, he's working to stand taller on the mound and incorporate a brief pause at the top of his delivery. Standing taller helps him keep his pitches down in the zone.

"That's why the breaking ball is better now," Soriano said.

Manager Matt Williams said the best-case scenario is for Soriano to regain closing duties, but he's not to that point yet. Drew Storen has filled in admirably so far.

"We're winning and that's what's most important,” Soriano said. "[Storen has] done it before and knows how to do it. It's a team and if you're not doing something consistently you have to put another guy in there to help. I don't have any issue with that, especially if we're winning."

Nationals closer situation something to watch

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/11/14) Nationals manager Matt Williams has said Rafael Soriano is ready to appear in games again after spending a few days ironing out his mechanics. But the way Drew Storen has pitched in his absence, why would they go back to him in the ninth inning?

They probably won't, at least not right away, but managers operate by a set different set of guidelines than we do. They value homeostasis, perhaps to a fault, and this first-year manager may ultimately decide that the last couple weeks before the playoffs aren't the time for a bullpen shakeup, meaning if Soriano proves he can still do the job, he'll get a chance to.

Besides, as good as Storen has looked in three appearances filling in for Soriano, striking out six without allowing a hit or walk, it is just three appearances. A meltdown this weekend would change everything, wouldn't it?

That said, I'm rooting for Storen and, at least in shallower leagues where I have the luxury of changing my mind later, making a play for him. I go into greater detail as to why in my latest post to the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, but it's not like he hasn't done it before.
