Dodgers Rumors: LA Looking Into Rafael Soriano

The Los Angeles Dodgers have been looking into the possibility of signing right-handed reliever Rafael Soriano, according to Buster Olney of ESPN.

Olney adds that it’s still a longshot that the Dodgers sign Soriano, putting the chances of a deal at roughly 20 percent.

The Dodgers have already made significant additions to their bullpen this offseason, as they’ve signed free agents Brandon League and J.P. Howell. Beyond these acquisitions, the Dodgers have a corps of relievers that also includes Kenley Jansen, Javy Guerra and Matt Guerrier.

While this would appear to be more than enough, this is the Dodgers we’re talking about. Los Angeles has added Zack Greinke and Hyun-Jin Ryu to an already-full starting rotation that included the likes of Clayton Kershaw.

Soriano maintained an ERA of 2.26 with 9.2 strikeouts and 3.2 walks per nine innings last season for the New York Yankees filling in for injured closer Mariano Rivera.
