Dominican Soriano Signed with New York Yankees

Rafael Soriano

A person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press that New York Yankees have reached a three-year agreement with the saves leader in the American League, dominican Rafael Soriano.

Soriano has yet to pass a physical to complete the contract, which would be worth $ 35 million. Soriano led the AL with 45 saves last season for Tampa Bay and then became a free agent.

The right to 31-year-old had a 3-2 record with a 1.73 ERA in his only year with the Rays and was a member of the All-Star team in the American League.

Soriano joins a bullpen that has the 41 year old panamanian, Mariano Rivera as their closer. Rivera recently signed a two-year contract.
