Maybe Cashman was right all along. Maybe we should hope he takes the player option. Maybe someone else will step up and fill Mo's shoes.
Seems like the Yankees signed damaged merchandise once again. Rafael Soriano has been shut down indefinitely with a balky elbow. So much for taking over for Mariano Rivera.
Soriano was sent for another MRI; and is out indefinitely, in case you didn't hear he is out indefinitely! Rafael Soriano has been sent for another MRI examination as the reliever had to cut short a flat ground throwing session on Monday after feeling more soreness in his pitching elbow. “I’m more concerned now,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. “I really thought that we would have him getting ready to possibly go out on a rehab assignment shortly and that doesn’t seem to be the case now.” You think so Joe?
Soriano signed a three-year, $35 million contract to serve as Mariano Rivera’s primary setup man. With Soriano out, the Yankees have patched together their late-inning mix by asking more of Dave Robertson and Joba Chamberlain, as well as Luis Ayala. Since he contributed nothing I don't if we should view it as a loss if he goes under the knife ending his season.
