Cubs recall Rafael Soriano, DFA Edwin Jackson
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(7/19/15) The Cubs recalled pitcher Rafael Soriano from Triple-A Iowa, the team announced on Sunday.

To make room, the Cubs designated pitcher Edwin Jackson for assignment. Jackson was 2-1 with a 3.19 ERA in 23 relief appearances with the team.
Cubs RP Rafael Soriano promoted to Triple-A on Thursday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/16/15) New Cubs reliever Rafael Soriano has made five appearances at Double-A Tennessee since being signed to a minors deal on June 9.
The veteran right-hander has not allowed a run in his five innings of relief, and has a 4:3 K:BB ratio so far.
Soriano will now move up to Iowa, as he has been promoted to Triple-A on Thursday, according to MLB.com.
|2014 Summary: The story on Rafael Soriano heading into 2014 was that he couldn't keep it up, that his stuff was on the decline and that he'd be one of the first longstanding closers to lose his job. And for the first 3 1/2 months, that story couldn't have been more wrong; he entered the All-Star break with 22 saves and a 0.97 ERA. But his season took such a dramatic turn thereafter that by mid-September, he was in fact out of a job, replaced by Drew Storen.|
Playing time status: Soriano's removal from the closer role was only supposed to be temporary -- a chance for him to collect his thoughts and fine tune his mechanics -- but the Nationals stuck with Storen through the playoffs. Now a free agent, Soriano can only hope his history in the role will land him another closer gig in 2015.
2015 Outlook: Though his season didn't end on a high note, Soriano's 2014 numbers were decent, and even his 2013 performance, which is what triggered the alarm, was halfway respectable. If he did get a chance to close somewhere, he wouldn't automatically be doomed to failure, but he would also be one of the lower-ranked closers in Fantasy, sort of the 2015 version of LaTroy Hawkins. As things stand, you can avoid him on Draft Day.
