11/4/2014 9:11:00 PM
Description: Outfielder Alfonso Soriano has announced his retirement from baseball, according to Hector Gomez of Listin Diario in the Dominican Republic.
Insight: He was released by the Yankees in July, and at 38-years-old, finishes a nice career, batting .270/.319/.500 with 412 homers and 1,159 RBI during 16 seasons. Soriano also made seven All-Star teams.
 
7/6/2014 12:50:00 PM
Description: Yankees outfielder Alfonso Soriano has been designated for assignment.
Insight: Soriano was batting .221 with six homers and 23 RBI which simply wasn't enough production for a guy with an $18 million salary.
 
7/6/2014 11:20:00 AM
Description: Yankees outfielder Alfonso Soriano has poor lifetime numbers against Twins right-hander Ricky Nolasco (.179 average, 5-for-28)
Insight: Soriano is sporting a symmetrical .200/.200/.200 slash line with no extra-base hits over his last 10 games, so he wouldn't have been the strongest play even if he had good numbers against the Minnesota righty. As it is, he does have two homers against Nolasco, but he's still not worth starting.
 
Cold6/14/2014 12:38:00 PM
Description: New York OF/DH Alfonso Soriano should take a seat on Saturday in an unfavorable matchup.
Insight: Soriano is 1-for-12 with seven strikeouts against Kazmir. So far, Soriano has disappointed fantasy owners with his .228 batting average, six homers and 22 RBI.
 
6/13/2014 7:59:00 PM
Description: New York OF/DH Alfonso Soriano will take a seat Friday against the A's.
Insight: He's in a platoon with Ichiro Suzuki (.313, 0 HR, 8 RBI) in right field and usually only starts against lefties. Soriano's fantasy value is very limited at this point.
 
Cold6/3/2014 9:58:00 AM
Description: Yankees OF/DH Alfonso Soriano is just 1-for-9 with four strikeouts against Oakland left-hander Scott Kazmir.
Insight: Soriano (.230, 6 HR, 19 RBI) is hitless in his last five games with five strikeouts over that span. Ichiro Suzuki, a career .333 hitter against Kazmir, should get the start.
 
Cold5/23/2014 5:37:00 PM
Description: Yankees OF/DH Alfonso Soriano isn't starting Friday against the White Sox.
Insight: Soriano (.235, 6 HR, 17 RBI) is hitless in his last five games with seven strikeouts over that span. Ichiro Suzuki (.369, 0 HR, 3 RBI) will try his hand at right field on Friday night.
 
5/21/2014 12:17:00 PM
Description: New York right fielder Alfonso Soriano isn't starting Wednesday against the Cubs.
Insight: It's only Soriano's third absence of the season. Ichiro Suzuki (.356, 0 HR, 2 RBI) is getting the start in right field.
 
5/17/2014 7:22:00 PM
Description: Yankees right fielder Alfonso Soriano had a double and a homer Saturday against the Pirates.
Insight: It was Soriano's first homer since May 2. He has six longballs, a 40/5 K/BB and a .255 average in 149 at-bats this season.
 
5/10/2014 1:15:00 PM
Description: New York DH Alfonso Soriano is a career .357 hitter with fourt homers versus Milwaukee starter Kyle Lohse.
Insight: He's hitting just .238 this season with 5 HR, 13 RBI. Perhaps this matchup will get him going.
 
5/9/2014 12:19:00 PM
Description: New York DH Alfonso Soriano hasn't been able to figure out Brewers starter Yovani Gallardo.
Insight: He's hitting just .160 against the right-hander with 11 punchouts in 25 at bats. Leaving Soriano (.238, 5 HR, 13 RBI) on your bench today might be your best course of action.
 
5/4/2014 11:20:00 AM
Description: Yankees DH Alfonso Soriano has done well in his career against Rays starter Erik Bedard.
Insight: Soriano has seven hits in 16 at bats against the left-hander (.438 AVG). The 38-year-old doesn't hit for average any more (just .252 in 111 at bats this season) but his power is as good as ever (5 HR, .441 slugging percentage).
 
Hot4/18/2014 10:22:00 AM
Description: Yankees outfielder/DH Alfonso Soriano is a lifetime .500 hitter against Rays starter Erik Bedard (7-for-14).
Insight: The 38-year-old went 0-for-16 to start the season, but he's been hot this week, batting .360 with a trio of homers over his last six games. In this favorable matchup he should be started.
 
4/8/2014 8:20:00 PM
Description: Yankees outfielder/DH Alfonso Soriano hit his first homer of the season Tuesday against the Orioles.
Insight: The 38-year-old went 0-for-12 over his first four games but he's five for his last 10. Soriano had 17 homers and 50 RBI in just 58 games after the Cubs traded him to New York last year.
 
4/4/2014 4:52:00 PM
Description: Yankees outfielder/DH Alfonso Soriano is not in Friday's lineup.
Insight: Just a day of rest for the 38-year-old. Beltran will shift over to DH and Ichiro Suzuki will start in right field.
 
9/29/2013 10:52:00 AM
Description: Yankees left fielder Alfonso Soriano is 7-for-14 with three doubles and one homer in his career against Houston's Erik Bedard.
Insight: Soriano has hit .176 over his last six games but this matchup should help him have one last big game to end the season. The veteran has hit .256 with 17 homers and 50 RBI in 58 games since joining New York.
 
9/21/2013 9:20:00 PM
Description: Yankees left fielder Alfonso Soriano homered for the second straight game Saturday against the Giants.
Insight: The Yankee pinstripes have revitalized Soriano; he now has 17 homers and 50 RBI in 52 games with New York after hitting 17 with 51 in 93 games with the Cubs. His 34 homers this year are his most since he hit 46 in 2006.
 
9/14/2013 8:36:00 PM
Description: New York left fielder Alfonso Soriano is day-to-day with a sprained thumb. SOURCE: Bryan Hoch, MLB.com
Insight: He was a late scratch from Saturday's starting lineup. Consider him doubtful for the series finale Sunday night at Fenway.
 
9/13/2013 10:30:00 AM
Description: Yankees outfielder Alfonso Soriano is just a .143 hitter (5-for-350 versus Boston starter John Lacket without a home run.
Insight: With two more RBI, he'll reach 100 for the second straight season. The outfielder has never had back-to-back 100-RBI seasons.
 
9/10/2013 10:30:00 PM
Description: Alfonso Soriano has four multi-homer games since joining the Yankees and seven this season.
Insight: His latest came Tuesday at Baltimore to help the Yankees win, 7-5. Soriano now has 32 homers, the same number he had last season. With two more RBI, he'll reach 100 for the second straight season. The outfielder has never had back-to-back 100-RBI seasons.
