Warning: Behind the pay wall
4. Rafael Soriano | RHP | Contract: Two years, $22 million
Performance: 12 saves, 2.25 ERA, 0.88 WHIP
A confluence of circumstances collapsed the free-agent market for the 33-year-old Soriano, and he was left stranded until the Nationals swooped in and grabbed him. Soriano was coming off another successful season with the Yankees, saving 42 games with a 2.26 ERA. With so many big-market clubs such as the Angels, Dodgers and Tigers saying no despite their need for a closer, the Nats took advantage even though they already had a closer in Drew Storen and set-up man in Tyler Clippard, who saved 32 games himself. The old baseball adage holds true: You can never have enough pitching.
