Rafael Soriano is finally off the market.
According to Jeff Passan, Soriano has signed a two-year, $28-million deal with the Nationals. The deal includes a vesting option for a third year.
Despite the long wait, it seems that Soriano was perfectly justified in opting out of his Yankees contract and turning down the Yankees qualifying offer. He locked up more money by signing with the aggressive Nats.
