What are the chances of Soriano gaining 2B eligibility?
Ichiro? No...
Dunn? No...
Ichiro Dunn! 106 runs, 23 home runs, 87 rbis, 23 stolen bases, 0.313 season average
Adam Suzuki! 106 runs, 23 home runs, 87 rbis, 23 stolen bases, 0.313 season average
Double the fun!

It's the only way he will have any fantasy value. He's not a top 20 fantasy outfielder.

Yeah, who would want a guy who hits .299 with 42 2Bs, 33 HRs, 19 SBs, 97 Rs and 70 RBIs in only 135 games to go with an .897 OPS? Not fantasy starter material.

No fantasy value unless he's at second base... :*)

Obviously depends on your settings. Remote chance he could get it this year in yahoo. It is rather unlikely and even if it did happen it probably would not be in time to make a big difference in leagues. It would end up being far more interesting next year.

Well as preposterous as that statement is, even if he was only a top 20 OF and not a top 5 OF, he'd still have considerable value. :-b

The Cubs have absolutely no intention of playing Soriano at 2B. Only in an extreme emergency will he get any time in the infield, and such an emergency is unlikely as the Cubs have DeRosa, Theriot, Fontenot, and Cedeno on the roster, all of whom can play 2B. I guarantee that Pinella won't start him there all season.
