Joakim Soria earns 13th save with four-out night for Tigers


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(1:26 am ET) Tigers closer Joakim Soria saved a win over Oakland with a four-out performance on Tuesday. 

Soria earned his 13th save in 14 opportunities. He stranded the tying run on base in the eighth inning, then allowed a two-out double in the ninth before stranding him as well.

Soria has allowed at least one hit in his last four outings, but three have resulted in saves. Tuesday was his first four-out night since May 7.  


Tigers RP Joakim Soria blows save on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/21/2015) Tigers closer Joakim Soria blew his first save of the year on Thursday, but the Tigers rallied back to beat the Astros 6-5 in 11 innings. Soria allowed a game-tying pinch-hit home run to Preston Tucker in the top of the ninth.

"It was a ball outside of the plate," Soria said, per MLB.com. "The guy hit an opposite-way homer. You just tip your cap. Good for him. He hit the ball well. That's what you want. You don't want him to pull the ball in that situation."

This is the first time Soria has been scored against since April 26. He is now 13-for-14 in save opportunities this season.

Soria lowered his ERA to 1.00 in 18 innings of work this season.


Tigers closer Joakim Soria allows two hits, still nails down save


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Tigers' Ausmus: Don't expect many four-out saves from Joakim Soria


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2015) Tigers closer Joakim Soria had a four-out save on Thursday, but manager Brad Ausmus said that won't become a regular occurrence. 

"I don't want to make it standard practice," Ausmus said, per MLB.com, "but I'm not worried about it. He's usually pretty efficient with his pitches. He doesn't tend to get into high-pitch counts, so that wasn't really a concern."

Five outs will be an even rarer event. 

"I'd be worried with five that the pitch count might get up, and we wouldn't be able to use him the next day," Ausmus said. "That doesn't mean we wouldn't. Maybe in a situation where you were trying to clinch a playoff spot, or were in the playoffs, you might do it for five outs."

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Tigers reliever Joakim Soria hurls another shut-down inning


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) For a guy supposedly holding down the fort for an injured closer, Tigers right-hander Joakim Soria is doing one heck of an impression of a lights-out closer and making one heck of an impression in the process.

His fine work continued Friday afternoon with a scoreless inning against the White Sox in which he retired the side in order on 10 pitches. He was rewarded when his teammates scored in the bottom of the frame to provide him the victory.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"We'll see what happens, but that's the plan," Ausmus said. "The most important thing, obviously, is to get him back."

Soria has been a perfect 3 for 3 in save opportunities since replacing Nathan, who is on the 15-day disabled list with flexor strain in his right elbow.

Tigers' Joakim Soria dealing with blister on thumb


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/8/2015) Tigers pitcher Joakim Soria has a blister on the inside of his right thumb, the Detroit Free Press reports.

"My arm feels good, everything feels in place," Soria said, per MLive.com. "I just didn't have my grip, and if you don't have the grip, it's tough to command the ball and get it down. Everything was up, and that's because I couldn't grip the ball."

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2015) Tigers reliever Joakim Soria was able to throw live batting practice on Tuesday, according to the Detroit Free Press

Soria wasn't listed on the team's pitching schedule for the first five spring games, which caused some confusion. While Soria said he's fine, manager Brad Ausmus said Soria is slightly behind the other pitchers in camp by his own choice. Soria did receive positive reviews during his session. "By all accounts, Soria threw very well," Ausmus said.

The 30-year-old Soria posted a 3.25 ERA over 44 1/3 innings last year.
