Soriano, Pokey on the mend
With the Mariners in the midst of a three-game winning streak, it may be an overdose of good news to note Rafael Soriano’s progress. Too much positivity is a rare problem these days, though, so it’s worth noting. Soriano is throwing 90-94, and hopes to be ready after the All-Star break.
Pokey Reese is also healing, and looks to be on a six- to eight-week timetable. How he fits into the lineup depends upon what happens during that stretch.
