by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Rafael Soriano works past early struggles, picks up first save
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/6/14) Nationals closer Rafael Soriano was not at his best on Sunday, but still managed to pick up his first save of the season against Atlanta.

Soriano worked past infield singles to Andrelton Simmons and Ryan Doumit in the ninth. He struck out two in a scoreless frame to preserve a 2-1 victory. He has allowed three hits while recording four strikeouts over two innings pitched this season.
Rafael Soriano solid in first appearance
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/3/14) Nationals closer Rafael Soriano was impressive in his first appearance of the year Thursday against the Mets.

Soriano wasn't used in a save situation, but the team wanted to get him some work. With a six-run lead, Soriano entered the game in the bottom of the ninth. He made quick work of his first two hitters, racking up two strikeouts. Soriano did give up one hit during the inning, but managed to pitch around it and finish the game.

Rafael Soriano spent spring tinkering with repertoire
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/2/14) Nationals closer Rafael Soriano spent spring training tinkering with two new pitches, including a pitch that behaves a lot like a sinker, according to The Washington Post.

"I started throwing it like that," he said. "It felt good. It’s a fastball but it moves differently. I don’t know how I’m going to use it. If I’m going to throw it, I’m not going to say. If I am going to throw a new pitch that they haven’t seen, I’ll stay quiet and not saying anything. If it works, I should use it. If not, no. If it works, why not? It’s another pitch."

Soriano also worked on throwing a changeup this spring, which is a pitch he said the last time he threw during the early part of his career with the Mariners, as well as improving his slider. 

While Soriano was refining his repertoire, the results in spring games weren't comforting. He posted a 14.29 ERA and 2.12 WHIP in six relief appearances. Though, Soriano doesn't put too much stock into his spring results.

"The good part is that I’m feeling good about my arm," he said. "That’s most important. The rest, as long as I feel good with my arm, that’s the only thing I can worry about. That was spring training. When the turn on the lights, then we’ll talk."

Rafael Soriano not worried about spring results
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/11/14) Nationals closer Rafael Soriano has been pretty bad through his first two spring appearances. Soriano has been tagged for seven runs and eight hits through 1 2/3 innings, which included a five-hit, five-run outing Monday against the Astros.

Despite his struggles, there is no panic from manager Matt Williams, who said his only concern is how Soriano feels. Soriano has told his manager he's feeling good, per The Washington Post.

"This was my second outing, so I’m not worried about the rest," Soriano said. "This is [spring] training. Training is for you to prepare yourself and to work on things. The results don’t matter. … All of us are getting ready. From our legs to our arms, everything, we’re trying to get up to speed. That’s why we have these games.

"I’m worried about feeling good mentally and physically. People started to talk about how they’re worried about me. Don’t worry about me. Worry on the 31st. From the 31st on, worry about me. Right now, don’t. This doesn’t matter. This is about preparation. That’s what I’m doing."
