I wouldn't be too worried about it, since his value isn't entirely dependant on his legs.

From what I've read on these forums, Soriano will continue to produce solid numbers from the DL. Now if he was purely a speed guy, this would kill his value for the entire year.

Yeah I'm a little confused there too. Maybe he means his numbers from the DL would be as good as what he's doing on the field? No batting average hurts you a lot less than a .175 batting average?

Wish granted. As per Rotoworld:

Cubs placed outfielder Alfonso Soriano on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right calf.
No word yet on a timetable for Soriano's return, but it's another leg injury that could have an effect on his game for a long time. The Cubs will go with Mark DeRosa and Reed Johnson in left field for now, opening up at-bats for Felix Pie and Mike Fontenot. Fontenot is a nice pickup in any NL-only leagues in which he's available. Johnson's value should also receive a boost.

From Rotoworld:

Alfonso Soriano-OF-Cubs Apr. 17 - 9:45 am et
The Cubs expect Alfonso Soriano to be fully recovered by the time he's eligible to come off the disabled list.
Soriano is expected to be in a walking boot until this weekend, at which point he'll begin doing rehab exercises. He had never been on the disabled list before joining the Cubs, but now has missed time on three occasions because of leg injuries.
Source: Chicago Sun-Times


I don't have any idea how it could affect him, but I still say they should shift him back to 2B, where he won't have to do nearly as much full-out running (not to mention that stupid hop-skip thing he does).
