Rafael Soriano traded to Tampa

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Dec 10, 2009 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

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.

    Please note the spectacular haul Atlanta got. Easily equal to Brett Gardner and Miranda, or Swisher and Aceves

  2. Corey December 10th, 2009 at 2:59 am

    How about Mike Gonzalez? Any chance of NY chasing him?

  3. UpState December 10th, 2009 at 3:04 am

    Ex-Pirates Farmhand.
    Yankees obviously didn’t really want Soriano.

  4. lebigyank December 10th, 2009 at 3:08 am

    lets get that cheap high risk pitcher already and light this candle.

  5. Pat M. December 10th, 2009 at 3:08 am

    Man that was fast…..

  6. Tom B December 10th, 2009 at 3:16 am

    we DO NOT want mike gonzalez. he only pitches well out of a full windup, check the numbers it is a truly awful split.

  7. Crawdaddy December 10th, 2009 at 5:11 am

    Cashman didn’t want Soriano especially at the amount of money he’s going to get at arbitration. That’s closer money.

    any final date on wang’s fate? NO to bay, cameron, gonzalez, halladay or holiday. have to congratulate boston on cornering the ramon ramirez market :)

    I need to re-calibrate my Chien-ming Wang Alert System — I woke up thinking there was new information posted, but it’s just a question. :mad:

    Sigh.

    Dec. 12 is the date by which Wang will either be tendered or non-tendered. If he’s non-tendered, his fate might not be known for a while longer; he’ll be a free agent.

    Back to sleepyland.

    just like xmas, i’m waiting for the rule V present :)

  13. blake December 10th, 2009 at 7:24 am

    Apparently the phillies have made an offer for Halladay. If Halladay goes to Philly then I think you can just about cancel the NL season for 2010. I just don’t see anybody beating them in the NL with what they already have + Halladay.

    Of course its better for the Yankees if he winds up in the NL if he doesn’t come to them but if the ultimate goal is to win another world series then Halladay to the phils would significantly affect those Chances IMO

  14. blake December 10th, 2009 at 7:30 am

    Just saw that there is a report that says the Phils may be willing to include cole Hamels in a trade for Halladay. I wouldn’t do that, and certainly wouldn’t if there is no extension..hamels is still young enough to figure it out again and be really good

  15. roger(live from Amsterdam) December 10th, 2009 at 7:36 am

    I think the Yankees should go all in on Lackey.

    This way you get to keep Joba,Hughes and Montero while knowing that Lackey can handle the Al East just fine

    SR 2010:Sabathia,Lackey,Burnett,Pettite,Chamberlain
    SR 2011:Sabathia,Lackey,Burnett,Chamberlain,Hughes

    First, everyone is gushing about Granderson (as they should) because he is a force against righties, but they are ignoringthe fact that he should not play against lefties. Sure, Long could work with him, but he still would not hit well enough to play. Perspective: Melky actually hit lefties better than righties last year .763 OPS, but even if you took the worst year of his last 3 years against lefties (2008 .578 OPS) it is slightly better than Grandersons last 3 years combined against lefties, OPS of .570. This guy should never start against a lefty until he has some breakthrough. This is why Cameron would be an excellent platoon guy.

    BTW, I really like this trade as Granderson crushes righties (.940 OPS over the last 3 years), but we need to use him to his strengths.

  17. NJ Steve December 10th, 2009 at 9:50 am

    BTW, I would also go after Lackey, but I would put Hughes in the rotation and keep Joba in the pen.
