  • Angels' Jose Soriano: Blanks Reds, stuck with loss

    Soriano (0-3) took the loss Sunday, allowing three hits and three walks with seven strikeouts over six scoreless innings against Cincinnati.

    Soriano was excellent Sunday, setting a career-high in strikeouts over six scoreless. He's been a solid option for the Angels since moving out of the bullpen, having allowed one run and four hits with 13 strikeouts in his past two appearances (11.0 innings). However, he's had difficulties with control, walking eight batters in that stretch. Soriano's next start is tentatively scheduled for Saturday against the Twins.

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: Effectively wild Tuesday

    Soriano came away with a no-decision in Tuesday's 7-6 extra-innings loss to the Rays, allowing one run on one hit and five walks over five innings. He struck out six.

    Making his second start of the season, Soriano threw just 48 of 90 pitches for strikes, but he generated 28 called or swinging strikes and the only hit against him was a fourth-inning single. The right-hander was in line to collect his first win of the season, but Carlos Estevez blew the save in the ninth. Soriano has a 12:5 K:BB through nine innings since moving into the rotation, and with Chase Silseth (elbow) not expected back until early May, he'll get at least a couple more turns. Soriano lines up to make his next start this coming weekend in Cincinnati.

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: Receives second straight start

    Soriano is scheduled to start Tuesday's game against the Rays.

    Even though he was touched up for four earned runs on six hits in just four innings in his first MLB start last Wednesday against the Rays, Soriano's 6:0 K:BB and eight swinging strikes on 72 pitches were encouraging. He'll get another crack at Tampa Bay in his second turn through the rotation, this time at Tropicana Field after the prior outing came at Angel Stadium. The 25-year-old could hold down a spot in the Anaheim rotation until Chase Silseth (elbow) is ready to return from the injured list.

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: Struggles in first start

    Soriano (0-2) took the loss Wednesday, giving up four runs on six hits over four innings as the Angels fell 4-2 to the Rays. He struck out six without walking a batter.

    Tampa Bay jumped on Soriano early, scoring three runs in the first inning and tacking on one more in the second, but the right-hander settled down before exiting his first start of the season after 72 pitches (49 strikes). He generated an encouraging 24 called or swinging strikes though, and the 25-year-old should have shown enough to get a longer look in the rotation. His next outing is likely to be a rematch with the Rays early next week in Tampa.

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: Moving into rotation

    Soriano will enter the Angels rotation and start Wednesday against the Rays in Anaheim, Rhett Bollinger of reports.

    The Angels stretched Soriano out in spring training before putting him back in the bullpen once the season began. However, with Chase Silseth (elbow) heading to the injured list, Soriano will now get a look in the rotation. Soriano came up as a starter in the minors and made two starts with Double-A Rocket City in 2023, but all 40 of his appearances in the majors to this point have come in relief. The 25-year-old has standout stuff with a fastball that regularly hits triple digits, but he also has two Tommy John surgeries under his belt and his professional high in innings is 82.1, which came back in 2019. Still, he may bring enough upside to the table for managers in deeper fantasy leagues to pick him up on speculation.

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: Fires triple-digit heat in relief

    Soriano earned a hold against Baltimore on Sunday, allowing one hit and two walks while striking out two batters over three scoreless innings.

    Soriano was initially tabbed to stretch out as a starter during spring camp, but he ultimately made the Opening Day roster as a reliever due to Robert Stephenson's shoulder injury. Soriano entered in the sixth inning in his season debut Sunday and successfully bridged the gap between starter Reid Detmers and closer Carlos Estevez with three scoreless frames. Per Statcast, Soriano averaged 100.4 mph on his 12 four-seam fastballs and 98.2 mph on his 19 sinkers, and he went to his curveball just three times. That's a turnaround from last year, when the curve was the right-hander's most prominent pitch, as he threw it 41.2 percent of the time. Soriano has the arsenal to thrive as either a starter or reliever, with walks being his primary flaw last season -- he posted a 12.4 percent walk rate to somewhat offset his excellent 30.3 percent strikeout rate.

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: Makes roster as reliever

    Soriano earned a spot on the Angels' Opening Day roster as a reliever, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

    The right-hander stretched out as a starter during spring training but will end up working out of the bullpen with Robert Stephenson (shoulder) likely unavailable. Soriano should continue to stay relatively stretched out and could serve as a spot starter if/when the Angels deal with rotation injuries. The 25-year-old made 38 appearances as a reliever in his first taste of the majors last season and posted a 3.64 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 56:23 K:BB over 42 innings.

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: May be pressed into bullpen role

    With Robert Stephenson (shoulder) uncertain to be ready for game action by Opening Day, the Angels are considering whether to move Soriano to a relief role, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    Soriano had been stretching out as a starter this spring, but Stephenson's shoulder issue may shift that plan, at least temporarily. Soriano posted a respectable 3.64 ERA in 42 innings as a reliever last season, though he had been primarily a starter in the minors prior to undergoing revision Tommy John surgery in 2021. Angels manager Ron Washington indicated late last week that the team still wants to see what Soriano can do as a starter and suggested that a move to the bullpen would be to "take care of need" before "thinking long term."

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: Will be stretched out as starter

    Soriano will be stretched out as a starting pitcher this spring, Rhett Bollinger of reports.

    Soriano showed last season that he can be a high-leverage reliever, and he still may very well settle back into that role. However, he does have past experience as a starter in the minors and the Angels will give him a shot to see if he can handle it. The 25-year-old is expected to throw three innings in his next Cactus League appearance.

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: Notches hold Saturday

    Soriano earned a hold against the Mets on Saturday, allowing one hit and striking out two batters over two scoreless innings.

    Soriano had worked exactly one frame in each of his past seven outings coming into Saturday, but he was tasked with covering two against the Mets with the Angels hanging onto a narrow lead. The rookie reliever was up to the task, retiring the side in order in the seventh inning and working around a hit-by-pitch and a single to keep New York off the scoreboard in the eighth. Soriano has emerged as a key piece of the Angels' bullpen since being called up in early June, posting a 2.81 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 44:20 K:BB over 32 innings while frequently pitching in high-leverage situations. He ranks second on the team with 13 holds on the campaign.

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: Notches 10th hold

    Soriano earned a hold against the Giants on Monday, striking out one batter in a perfect inning.

    Soriano got the eighth frame in a game that the Angels led 3-2 at the time. The right-hander got the job done, retiring the side in order on 12 pitches, but closer Carlos Estevez melted down in the ninth as San Francisco came back for the win. Manager Phil Nevin hasn't hesitated to use Soriano in a high-leverage role throughout his rookie campaign, as the reliever has tallied 10 holds in 21 appearances. He's impressed with a 14.0 K/9, 3.24 ERA and 1.36 WHIP over 25 frames.

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: Yet to be scored upon

    Soriano earned a hold against the Rangers on Thursday, striking out two batters in a perfect inning.

    Soriano got the call in the eighth frame in a close contest, emphasizing how quickly he's ascended the bullpen pecking order. Part of that rise is due to injuries to Ben Joyce (elbow) and Matt Moore (oblique), but Soriano has certainly earned his manager's trust as well. The rookie right-hander has yet to surrender a run in six big-league appearances, yielding just one hit and posting a 10:2 K:BB over seven innings. He's picked up five holds in those six outings, so he's worth a look in fantasy leagues that count that category, especially while Moore and Joyce remain out.

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: Hurls scoreless frame in MLB debut

    Soriano worked a scoreless inning against the Astros on Saturday, allowing one walk and striking out one batter.

    Soriano earned his first call-up to the majors after posting a 4.24 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 31:16 K:BB over 23.1 innings at Double-A this season. The right-hander faced a challenge against the heart of Houston's lineup in his debut outing, but he worked around a one-out walk to Alex Bregman to fire a scoreless frame. Soriano has the strikeout stuff -- including a high-90-s fastball -- to eventually work as a high-leverage reliever, but he's unlikely to see many such opportunities in his initial stint in the majors.

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: Recalled to MLB bullpen

    Soriano was recalled Saturday from Double-A Rocket City, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

    Soriano will get his first taste of MLB action at age 24, presumably operating as a low-leverage bullpen option for the Angels. He had pitched to a 4.24 ERA with 31 strikeouts through 23.1 innings this season at the Double-A level.

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: Sent down to minor-league camp

    The Angels optioned Soriano to minor-league camp Saturday.

    Soriano is a member of the Angels' 40-man roster but wasn't a serious candidate to make the Opening Day club as a pitcher that hasn't advanced past Low-A so far. The right-hander will likely report to Double-A Rocket City and could help the Angels bullpen at some point down the line if he shows the ability to command his arsenal on a more consistent basis.

  • Angels' Jose Soriano: Team uncertain about future role

    The Angels haven't yet decided whether to develop Soriano as a starter or reliever, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

    Soriano was once an intriguing pitching prospect, but he's undergone two Tommy John surgeries since 2020 and tossed only 13 minor-league innings last season. While he's on the Angels' 40-man roster, the right-hander isn't likely to ascend to the big leagues this season. The Angels are understandably unsure about Soriano's future role given his lack of game action over the past four seasons, though manager Phil Nevin left the door open for him to develop as a starter, saying, "You can see him coming in and blowing it out for one inning or if he can sustain it and he can go for five, six innings, then obviously that's a great spot for him too."
