News: Soriano picked up the save Friday night after allowing no hits and a walk in a scoreless ninth inning versus the Cardinals. Impact: Now 4-for-4 in his save chances, Soriano has looked great here in the early going. The veteran closer has not been scored upon over his seven innings and has a strong 10-to-1 K/BB ratio.(RotoWire, )

News: Manager Matt Williams said he wants to avoid using Soriano on Friday, James Wagner of the Washington Post reports. Impact: Soriano has thrown 37 pitches in the last two days, so Tyler Clippard could get the call if a save opportunity presents itself Friday. Craig Stammen is unavailable.(RotoWire, )

News: Soriano recorded his second save of the season on Wednesday, giving up two hits and striking out two batters. Impact: Soriano made things interesting for a bit by allowing two baserunners to reach, but was able to put the nail in the coffin by inducing a Christian Yelich ground ball. He's made just three appearances this season, so Soriano should be readily available if the Nationals find themselves in another save situation Thursday.(RotoWire, )

News: Soriano picked up his first save of the season Sunday, giving up two hits and striking out two in a shutout ninth inning. Impact: He got the job done, but Soriano's fastball remained in the same low-90s range it was last season. Don't expect his strikeout rate to return to its pre-2013 levels, but as long as he holds onto the Nats' closer gig he'll have solid fantasy value.(RotoWire, )

News: Soriano got his first work of the season Thursday in a non-save situation, allowing one hit and striking out two in a shutout ninth inning. Impact: It's good to see him put a rough spring behind him with a strong outing. Soriano is still the lead dog in the bullpen and isn't likely to cede his closer job any time soon.(RotoWire, )
