Rafael Soriano may accept aribitration
Braves fan glass half-empty response: “D’oh! That’s less money available to go and get a bat!”Braves fan glass half-full response: “Man, our bullpen is gonna be epic!”
It’s been widely speculated that right-hander Rafael Soriano who was offered salary arbitration by the Braves this week, will decline the offer and hit the open market as a free agent. But Soriano’s agent said Saturday that the pitcher is giving serious consideration to accepting arbitration and returning to Atlanta for a one-year deal.
“It’s going to go down to the wire,’' said agent Peter Greenberg. “It’s definitely going to be a last-minute decision for us.’'
So basically, I’m not going to cry about it if Soriano accepts arbitration, even if Frank Wren does.
