Rafael Soriano is still looking for work, with the draft pick compensation attached to signing him no doubt crushing the reliever’s potential market, but just in case anyone thought he might end up back with the Yankees …
The Yankees want the draft pick/draft dollars they’ll get when Soriano signs elsewhere more than they want him back, no matter the contract.

Told Scott Boras asked #Yankees last month if they’d consider taking Rafael Soriano back on a 1-yr deal. Request flatly denied.
