Guardado and Rafael Soriano get bad news

Postby thehat » Tue Aug 10, 2004 11:35 pm

If you've been holding onto Everyday Eddie, forget about it. He has a torn rotator cuff. That's it for him till 2006, or at best late 2005.

As for Soriano, he's heading for Tommy John surgery with a torn elbow ligament.

These were both just announced on Seattle game broadcast.

Poor Seattle. :-/

I am upset about Soriano a lot more than Guardado. Raphael has a lot of potential and this surgery will probably set him back a year. I mean countless times pitchers have proven how hard it is to come back after TJS. But if you are looking for early 2006 sleepers, look no further than Soriano.

What a bust Soriano has been, I got him in the 17th round in my keeper league and thought that was a steal and thought he could have a year similar to Johan last year. Hopefully he'll return back to 2003 form in 06.

Great, just great. :-[

I was hoping for a return this year out of Guardado. :-[

Anyone got a link yet?

How much stock would you put in Miadritsch and Putz?

Is there someone else we could look for here?

Pick up Putz if you have an open spot....but that team is so bad that he almost isn't worth it.

from rotoworld:

Rafael Soriano will undergo Tommy John surgery and miss the start of next year.
Hey, maybe if we announce all the bad news right after Edgar retires, no one will notice. Right? Not the best of days for the Mariners training staff. Soriano could come back for the second half of next year and be as dominant as ever by 2006, but this combined with Eddie Guardado's injury is going to make it a lot tougher for Seattle to contend next season.

All I have to say is it sucks that easy eddie will be gone for a while, but at least the Giants didn't trade for him at the deadline!!!!

Raphael Soriano? Eddie Guardado? Who are they?

(I have forgotten about them....I think everyone else should too). Until 2006.

So glad I traded for Guardado and then had the injury announced, the dl stint announced, and then announced that he wouldn't be coming back.

He never even made it on my team log.
