Maddon welcomes addition of Soriano
Manager Joe Maddon is visiting his hometown of Hazleton, Pa., and dealing with temperatures in the teens. But he was warmed by the addition of closer Rafael Soriano to his bullpen:
"We were very fortunate Soriano was available and that we were able to match up with Atlanta. He will fit in nicely with our group. Another high-leverage guy to help us get back to playing playoff baseball.''
