Blue Jays trade for Joakim Soria
The Jays have acquired another pitcher in 37-year-old veteran Joakim Soria from the Diamondbacks. He has a 4.30 ERA (3.74 FIP) this year with the snakes, who he signed with in the offseason on a one-year, $3.5M deal. Previously Soria has played for the Royals and the Athletics. He is a late inning reliever who has appeared in 31 games this year. He has six saves, three holds, and two blown saves. He will have a similar role to what Rafael Dolis has now for the team (although we hope much quicker).
