What do you guys think...does he have a decent chance to become the every day closer? He has better stuff than Octavio Dotel, IMO, and David Riske could hardly be considered a threat to get the job over him. Thoughts?

:-?

Soria doesn't have anywhere near the stuff Dotel does. Once Dotel is healthy he will get his job back. Soria may be named closer for now but I'm betting we use more of the "who's hot right now" for the closer until Dotel comes back.

He is the favorite for saves and is worth adding in all formats. Dotel should remain to be an injury risk so he could be a nice find for cheap saves this year

Your opinion is crazy, because when healthy Dotel has excellent stuff.

Soria is good but Dotel is definitely on another level. He's worth adding simply because we don't really know how long Dotel will be out. Right now they're estimating early May but Dotel's return date has been continually pushed back so I think Soria is worthy of an add for now. There's no doubt that Dotel is going to be the closer when he comes back since he was brought in specifically for this.
