From the Rosenthal post:
Rival teams expect the Indians to be aggressive; remember, the Tribe acquired right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez last summer to take advantage of a window that likely will remain open through next season, after which right fielder Shin-Soo Choo will be a free agent. The Indians surely would prefer a more consistent, better-rounded player than Soriano. But the Cubs left fielder has a career .866 OPS against left-handers, and an .834 OPS against them this season.
Those numbers are fine, but some others -- not so much. Last season, Soriano hit .244 with a dreadful .289 on-base percentage, the 10th-worst OBP in the majors.
To his credit, Soriano, 36, has 12 home runs this season -- tied for eighth in the National League -- and has hit five homers in the past 10 games. He hit zero homers in his first 30 games.
