Rafael Soriano To Opt Out?
According to Jon Heyman there is a "good chance" Rafael Soriano opts out of his contract, which is set to pay him $14 million in 2013, making him a free agent after this season. If Mariano doesn't return, then that could make the bullpen pretty iffy, as I don't see any way the Yankees re-sign Soriano to a multi-year contract. Heck, Cashman didn't want to sign him in the first place. Of course, if the team needs to fill the closer role, then that could change.
