One of the top relievers on the market — and a guy who was tied to the Yankees at one point — Rafael Soriano has been traded to the Tampa Bay Rays according to Jon Heyman.

Soriano accepted arbitration with the Braves, who had already signed two late-inning relievers and it seemed to be in the best interest of both Soriano and the Braves that he be traded.

Apparently the Rays will send Jesse Chavez to Atlanta.

By the way, this is another of those thank you to MLBTradeRumors moments.
