Latest Update Yankees released Alfonso Soriano.   Tue Jul, 15, 09:52 AM

After batting just .221 with six home runs and 23 RBI through 226 at-bats, the Yankees have now officially cut ties with Soriano, ending his second stint in the Bronx. At the age of 38, there clearly isn't much juice left in the tank, but a team searching for either a designated hitter or a power bat off the bench could come calling if Soriano is willing to continue his career. However, his fantasy value is going to remain limited unless he finds the fountain of youth. Analyst: Matthew Beck

Assets & FlawsComplete Stats

Assets:   Used powerful wrists to hit doubles, triples and home runs in streaks. Was athletic and could take the extra base. Could also be a top-tier run-producer. Stole a lot of bases early on in his career.
Flaws:  : A free swinger, he was quite streaky and strikeout-prone. Didn't take as many walks as he should have. Was increasingly injury-prone with declining speed over the years. Also, he was not a good glove man.

    Alfonso Soriano was designated for assignment
  • Not much of a surprise here considering the lack of overall production and the fact that he's been relegated to a platoon role with Ichiro over the last month. What happens next should be interesting as Soriano is still in the last year of that eight-year, $136 million deal the Cubs gave him. He's too pricey for the Yankees to trade him as they would be asked to pick up most of the money involved and he probably will clear waivers as well for the same reason. Someone at some point may be willing to bring him on as a part-time DH, but how soon and whether he'll have any fantasy value remains to be seen.Analyst: Howard Bender

    Alfonso Soriano is not in the Yankees starting lineup on Friday.
  • The 38-year old Soriano is hitting just .190 (24-for-126) versus right-handed pitching this season, so you will be hard pressed to find him in the Yankees starting lineup going forward when the team is opposing a right-handed pitcher as is the case tonight as the A's are starting RHP Sonny Gray.Analyst: Michael Pichan

    Alfonso Soriano to platoon vs. lefties
  • Soriano has been absolutely atrocious against right-handers, batting just .195 with an equally ugly .221 on-base percentage. Ichiro Suzuki and Kelly Johnson should see an uptick in playing time which should help them both in their fantasy value.Analyst: Howard Bender
