Rafael Soriano had a tremendous season for the Yankees, piling up 42 saves with a 2.26 ERA after the great Mariano Rivera went down with a season ending injury. That injury may have earned Soriano a HUGE contract with another team. According to Rafael’s agent, Scott Boras, he can get a deal for 15 million a year for four years. Not even the greatest closer of all-time, Rivera ever received such a high contract from the Yankees. “Scott Boras has told the player and us that he can get him $15 million a year for four years,” Levine told the Daily News. “We’d love to have him back, but I hope he holds Scott accountable if he doesn’t get that.” The 33-year-old Soriano was due to make $14 million next season with the Yanks, who are expected to make a qualifying offer of about $13.3 million in order to get a top draft pick as compensation should he sign with another team. However, it seems unlikely Boras will be able to find a team to take on Soriano, who has two previous elbow surgeries. If a team were to sign Soriano, they’d also have to give up a top draft choice. The post Rafael Soriano opts out of contract, done with the Yankees? appeared first on New York Sports Kings.
