That's what I'd always heard about him as well. I've never heard any talk of him moving to the rotation.
He actually came through the minors as a starter, and he started a few games when he first got to the bigs. Then they decided he'd be better in the bullpen. I haven't heard any talk of him going back to the rotation...
Yep. I definately think Soriano is going to be in the mix for the closer job. Even if Guardado stays (which I don't think he will) Soriano will still be there. The M's have always liked him in the bullpen.
