Rafael Soriano underwent and MRI exam yesterday after complaining of elbow soreness and the news is positive, as Marc Carig of the Newark Star Ledger reports that he’s “day-to-day” with elbow inflammation.

According to Carig he’s expected to test the injury by playing catch tomorrow and presumably could be cleared for game action as soon as Friday, when the Yankees begin a three-game series against the Red Sox in New York.

Soriano coughed up nine runs in his first 10 appearances after signing a $35 million deal with the Yankees this offseason, but has put together a modest four-appearance scoreless streak to bring his overall ERA down to 5.79.
