I wouldn't count on it. From Rotowire . . .
Soriano will not be starting when he returns to the club, manager Bob Melvin reiterated Tuesday to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. He's been working on improving his arm strength after a spring injury. "Soriano was a dominant guy in the bullpen," Melvin said. "We need him there. We're not looking for him as a starter." If an extra starter is needed, lefty Ron Villone, a starter last season for Houston, probably would be the first to get the call. Soriano will return probably about May 4.
