News: Soria would have been used to close out a Texas win on Monday, though manager Ron Washington also incidated that Alexi Ogando will "get a chance to close ballgames" as well, the team's web site reports. Impact: All indications are that Soria will serve as the primary closer, only yielding to Ogando due to workload concerns, as Soria works his way back into shape.(RotoWire, )

News: Soria was unavailable to pitch Sunday after pitching the two previous games, leaving Alexi Ogando to finish the game against the Rangers. Impact: Soria isn't off to a great start, having given up four earned runs in his first five games. The Rangers have to be cognizant of preserving him for the extent of the season, so it's likely he'll get rested the next time he has back-to-back appearances as well.(RotoWire, )

News: Soria gave up three earned runs on four hits in a non-save situation Tuesday against the Red Sox. Impact: He recorded all three outs in the ninth inning via the strikeout, but damaged his owners' ERA in the process. It was Soria's second outing in three nights, which isn't an unusual workload for a closer, but perhaps manager Ron Washington will think twice before sending Soria in with a six-run lead in the future.(RotoWire, )

News: Soria recorded his first save of the season, setting down all three batters he faced during the ninth inning of Sunday's win over the Rays. Impact: For Soria, place a mark in the saves column for the first time since 2011. The two-time All-Star needed only 14 pitches to retire all three Rays that he faced during the final frame of Sunday's 3-0 victory and has looked strong here in the early going of 2014.(RotoWire, )
