Tigers bring back righty reliever Joakim Soria


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/31/2014) What was expected is now reality - the Tigers have picked up their option on right-handed reliever Joakim Soria. The team is starved for bullpen help.

Soria could not wrest the closer job away from struggling Joe Nathan, but he did walk just six in 44 1/3 innings in splitting time between Texas and Detroit. His ERA rose from 2.70 to 3.25 after the trade, however, and he gave up five earned runs in just one inning pitched during the playoff sweep defeat to Baltimore.


Tigers expected to keep Soria


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2014) The Tigers are expected to exercise their option on pitcher Joakim Soria, according to MLB.com.

Soria has a $7 million club option for next season. The team will need to make a decision on the option shortly after the end of the World Series. While general manager Dave Dombrowski said the final decision hasn't been made yet, he hinted at the club picking up Soria's contract. "It's a situation where we look at him as being an important acquisition toward this [coming] year also," Dombrowski said. 

Soria posted a 3.25 ERA over 44 1/3 innings split between Texas and Detroit. 


Joakim Soria takes loss in Game 2 of ALDS


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) Tigers pitcher Joakim Soria was charged with a loss Friday, allowing one earned run on one hit and one walk in two-thirds of an inning in his team's 7-6 defeat against the Orioles in Game 2 of the American League Division Series.

Soria (0-1) came into the game up two runs in the bottom of eighth inning with runners on first and second and just one out. After walking the first batter he faced to load the bases, he surrenderd a bases-clearing double to put his team down one run with just one chance to even things back up in the ninth. The Tigers couldn't scrape together a run, leaving the team down 2-0 heading into Sunday's must-win game in Detroit.

Joakim Soria feels fine after simulated game


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/9/2014) Tigers reliever Joakim Soria told MLB.com he felt fine following a simulated game Monday, and could be cleared to return to action Wednesday.

Joakim Soria's sim game goes well


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/8/2014) Tigers reliever Joakim Soria threw 25 pitches in a simulated appearance Monday and felt good about it, according to MLB.com. He'll take Tuesday off before potentially coming off the DL Wednesday.

Soria has been sidelined since Aug. 9 with a strained oblique.


Joakim Soria able to throw off mound Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) 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. 


Joakim Soria throws off flat ground Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) Tigers pitcher Joakim Soria threw off flat ground from 140 feet before Tuesday's game, MLB.com reports.

"Soria felt absolutely nothing for the first time, which was a great sign," manager Brad Ausmus said. "Because the Minor League seasons are over, though, I honestly don't know what the next step will be."

Soria is likely to throw batting practice at the major-league level rather than go on a rehab assignment. He has been sidelined since Aug. 10 with a strained oblique.


Joakim Soria to throw Monday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/31/2014) Tigers reliever Joakim Soria (oblique) will throw Monday, according to MLive.com. He will either throw from flat ground or off the front of the mound.

Joakim Soria still not cleared to throw off mound


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2014) Tigers pitcher Joakim Soria will probably need more time than expected to return from an oblique strain, MLB.com reports Thursday.

Though he was hoping to return from the DL shortly after he was first eligible, Soria has yet to throw off a mound, and is not scheduled to do so Friday either. Soria has been limited to throwing off flat ground, and there is currently no schedule for him to progress to a mound, nor for his return to game action. 


Joakim Soria should return shortly after eligible


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/22/2014) Tigers pitcher Joakim Soria is eligible to return from the disabled list Monday, and could be back from an oblique injury shortly after, manager Dave Dombrowski said Friday.

"He can be activated on Monday," Dombrowski told MLB Network Radio. "I'm not sure he'll be activated right then, but he's very close."

Soria should not need much more time than the minimum to return from his injury, which has kept him out since Aug. 9. He had allowed five earned runs in 4 1/3 innings since joining the Tigers. 


Joakim Soria goes on the DL


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) The Tigers placed pitcher Joakim Soria on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left oblique. Soria, who suffered the injury Saturday, is 2-4 with a 3.58 ERA and 17 saves in 19 opportunities.

Joakim Soria suffered left side strain Saturday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) Tigers pitcher Joakim Soria has been diagnosed with a strained left side, the team announced following Saturday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Soria was forced to leave Saturday's game after just five pitches due to the injury. He will be re-evaluated Sunday to determine the extent of the injury, leaving his availability moving forward in doubt. 


Joakim Soria leaves game with apparent injury


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) Tigers short reliever Joakim Soria, who replaced a failing Joe Nathan in the ninth inning Saturday and escaped a jam, called out the trainers before the 10th inning and has been removed from the game in Toronto.

He left the game during his warmup tosses.


Joakim Soria earns win in extra innings Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/5/2014) Tigers pitcher Joakim Soria picked up a win Tuesday, tossing a 1-2-3 11th inning in his team's 4-3, 12-inning win over the Yankees.

Soria (2-4) didn't record a strikeout in the appearance. He's now turned in back-to-back scoreless outings after struggling in the wake of the trade that sent him to Detroit. Soria owns a 3.65 ERA and 45:6 K:BB ratio in 37 innings.


Joakim Soria rocked in second Tigers appearance


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Tigers pitcher Joakim Soria had trouble adjusting to his new role Tuesday, giving up four earned runs on six hits in just one-third of an inning in his team's 11-4 loss to the White Sox.

Soria surrendered an unearned run in his first outing with his new team before getting blown up Tuesday. He surrendered his first two home runs of the season in the poor performance. Soria owns a 3.71 ERA and 43:5 K:BB ratio in 34 innings.


Joakim Soria might be worth stashing


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/24/2014) Granted, he wasn't getting the most consistent save opportunities in Texas, but if you play in a league where every save matters (which is typically the case in Rotisserie formats), Joakim Soria's move to Detroit is a punch in the gut.

Mostly because the Tigers say they intend to stick with Joe Nathan as their closer. Sad face.

But let's get real here: Nathan has been terrible and has shown no clear signs of a turnaround. Since blowing his third save May 21, the longest he's gone without allowing an earned run is four appearances. That won't cut it in the ninth inning.

Soria, meanwhile, was brilliant for the Rangers even if his low save total didn't reflect it. He compiled a 2.70 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 11.3 strikeouts per nine innings in 35 innings. His FIP, which estimates ERA with defense and luck removed from the equation, is 1.07.

The Rangers may intend to stick with Nathan as their closer, but if both he and Soria continue to do what they've been doing, the switch could come quickly. So if you play in a league where every save matters, maybe you just stash Soria for now.


Joakim Soria expected to pitch mostly in seventh inning


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2014) Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said newly acquired reliever Joakim Soria will probably pitch mostly in the seventh inning, according to the Detroit Free Press.

However, he said Soria could help in the eighth or ninth inning when setup man Joba Chamberlain and closer Joe Nathan need a day off.

"The ability to get left-handed and right-handed hitters out is extremely important," Dombrowski said. "In our situation, where you are trying to win, I think it’s important to be able to do that. You don’t want to be switching every hitter with a different pitcher if you can avoid that. Soria has shown that he can get left-handed and right-handed hitters out very well. I think that’s important."


Tigers set to acquire Joakim Soria


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2014) The Tigers have traded for Rangers reliever Joakim Soria , according to 97.1 The Ticket. The move was confirmed by CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

The Tigers bullpen has struggled this season, collectively posting a 4.41 ERA. That is the fifth worst figure among major-league bullpens. Soria has been solid this season, posting a 2.70 ERA over 33 1/3 innings. It's unclear whether Soria will be used as the closer, or if he'll set up Joe Nathan.


Joakim Soria blows save in 13th inning Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2014) Rangers closer Joakim Soria blew a save opportunity in the 13th inning of Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Yankees.

Soria gave up an earned run on a double and two singles in the 13th, but he was able to record an inning-ending double play to get out of the inning with the score still tied. He owns a 2.70 ERA and 42:4 K:BB ratio in 33 1/3 innings.


Joakim Soria picks up 17th save Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) Rangers closer Joakim Soria earned his 17th save Monday, giving up one hit in a scoreless ninth inning to finish off his team's 4-2 win over the Yankees.

Report: Tigers looking into Joakim Soria


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/18/2014) Rangers closer Joakim Soria has found save opportunities hard to come by recently, as he has recorded just one in the month of July thus far.

That could change with a possible change of scenery in the works, as FOXSports.com reports the Tigers have been engaged in ongoing talks with the Rangers about the veteran reliever. Soria has 16 saves in 17 chances this season, while posting a 2.67 ERA with 40 strikeouts and only four walks in 30 1/3 innings. 


Joakim Soria picks up first save in nearly a month


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2014) Rangers closer Joakim Soria got back on track with the save Saturday night against the Mets in New York. It was his first save since June 14.

Joakim Soria takes third loss Sunday vs. Twins


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2014) Rangers closer Joakim Soria was hit with a loss Sunday, giving up one earned run on two hits while striking out three in his team's 3-2 defeat against the Twins.

Soria (1-3) struck out the first batter he faced before a single and double pushed the go-ahead run across the plate. While the closer was able to strike out the following two batters to end the inning, the damage was done, and the Twins closer responded with a 1-2-3 inning to give Soria the loss. He owns a 2.93 ERA and 39:4 K:BB ratio in 27 2/3 innings after putting together back-to-back ugly outings.
