Rafael Soriano out for a month 

Seattle's terrific young pitcher Rafael Soriano, the other Soriano in the AL West right now, is going to be out for a month with a strained oblique muscle.

That timetable could have him back by the start of the season, but it seems more likely that he'll start the season on the D.L., given that he'll have missed most of spring training.

That means that there's a chance the Rangers won't see him in their two April series against the Mariners...which, considering that Soriano was one of the Mariners' best pitchers last year (even though he's being wasted in a middle relief role), isn't a bad thing if we are hoping to see the Rangers avoid stumbling out of the blocks yet again...
