Soriano faces hitters in Tampa; Feliciano and Marte continue throwing


Via the AP, Rafael Soriano threw 25 pitches to hitters in live batting practice today, his second live BP session. I can’t imagine a minor league rehab stint will be far behind, and that’s good news. Pedro Feliciano, meanwhile, resumed a throwing program after being shutdown for a week with soreness in his injured left shoulder. Damaso Marte continues to throw bullpen sessions as well. Good news all around, though the last two are still long shots to contribute this year.

    Forget about the contracts, these guys are the missing pieces to making a deep run in October. Great news all the way around.

    It would be like trading for 3 relievers but without giving something up that we can whine about in hindsight.

    Soriano better come back with a better attitude than he left with

    You mean “will [NOT] be far behind” right?

    Just messing with you Mike. Love the blog, keep up the great work. :)
