Tigers | Joakim Soria blows first save

Thu, 21 May 2015 14:46:19 -0700

Detroit Tigers RP Joakim Soria blew his first save of the season against the Houston Astros Thursday, May 21. He allowed one hit and an earned run while throwing 13 pitches. His ERA now stands at 1.42 on the year.

Fantasy Tip: Soria still remains one of the most valuable closers in the game despite his first blown save of the year. He's not striking out a ton, but he has a firm grasp on the ninth-inning job with Joe Nathan done for the year.

Tigers | Joakim Soria thriving as closer

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 18:50:41 -0700

Detroit Tigers RP Joakim Soria is 1-0 with a 1.59 ERA and four saves in four chances since taking over as the closer for RP Joe Nathan (elbow).

Fantasy Tip: Soria should be owned in all leagues at this point, and given Nathan's shaky health and performance the last couple of years, Soria could definitely find himself pitching in the ninth inning a lot this season.

Tigers | Joakim Soria the new closer in Detroit

Wed, 08 Apr 2015 13:50:24 -0700

Detroit Tigers RP Joakim Soria will take over the closer's role in Detroit with RP Joe Nathan (elbow) on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Soria was already likely widely owned in most fantasy leagues because of increasing health and performance concerns around Nathan. While Brad Ausmus said the plan is for Nathan to regain the closer's job when healthy, we wouldn't be surprised at all if Soria took the job and ran with it. Immediately scoop him up off your league's waiver wire if he's available.

Tigers | Joakim Soria perfect this spring

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 09:18:50 -0700

Detroit Tigers RP Joakim Soria hasn't allowed a run in five innings in spring training.

Fantasy Tip: With Joe Nathan's age and velocity concerns well documented, Soria is a popular late-round closer pick as a handcuff to Detroit's encumbent closer. The leash for Nathan might be short, so Soria has a decent chance to take over the ninth-inning duties at some point in 2015 whether it be because of poor performance or injury.
