The agent of free agent pitcher Rafael Soriano told ESPN that his client is open to setting up for the Yankees. The Yankees lost Kerry Wood to the Cubs and need someone to bridge the gap to Mariano Rivera.
In his first and only season with the Rays, Soriano posted a 1.73 ERA and a 0.80 WHIP in 64 appearances. He owns a lifetime 2.73 ERA and will certainly give the Yankees stability in the later innings.
The Yankees are also reportedly looking into signing free agent starter Jeremy Bonderman.
