Eric Bledsoe said the Suns are using restricted free agency rules against him.
Bledsoe is the top free agent on the market still, but with Suns GM Ryan McDonough saying that he will match any offer that comes Bledsoe's way, teams aren't lining up to try and sign him. Had he been an unrestricted free agent, he would have already had a max deal handed to him.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Joakim Soria will throw a bullpen session Thursday.
Soria was acquired last season by the Tigers as an insurance policy for the struggling Joe Nathan but he found himself getting injured just six games after being acquired which forced him to miss more than a month. In 13 games with the Tigers last season Soria went 1-1 with a 4.91 ERA after posting a 2.70 ERA with the Rangers prior to the trade. The Tigers expect Nathan to be their closer heading into the season which will mean Soria will once again be in a set up role. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba
