Soriano’s latest throwing session went well


Via Chad Jennings, Rafael Soriano played catch yesterday and “the reports were good,” according to Joe Girardi. Last week’s session didn’t go so well and the right-hander had to be sent for more treatment, so this qualifies as progress. Soriano is in Tampa after spending a significant amount of time with a physical therapist for his inflamed elbow ligament, but he isn’t eligible to come off the disabled list until after the All-Star break. So either way, he’s a month away at the very least.

  1. Cue irrational comments about hating Soriano, Soriano’s mental state, and not wanting Soriano to come back.

    Yankees fans: We want a healthy Soriano back on the active roster. It would make the Yankees a better team. Root for him to come back.

  2. He’ll get back in just enough time for a one-month audition to try and convince Cashman that there’s no need to trade for Heath Bell.

    Progress! Soriano, Hughes, Colon, Feliciano/Marte, Chavez… I’ve got my fingers crossed.

  4. Yank The Frank says:

    Our guys on the DL may be the best talent available at the trade deadline.

  5. CS Yankee says:

    He has been a Pavano type project since signing.

    Amazing that 6 of our top 8 on the DL are pitchers and without them they are still playing as well as they are (9 of 11).
