Once Rafael Soriano officially opted out of the final year of his contract, leaving over $12 million on the table, many people felt as if he immediately became the top closer available on the open market this free agency season. After watching how poorly Jose Valverde performed for the Detroit Tigers throughout the 2012 MLB Postseason, it became even more evident that Soriano would opt out in an effort to cash in this offseason.

But does that mean that teams should line up to offer big money and potentially overspend to sign Soriano? Sure, he was arguably the New York Yankees’ savior in 2012 once Mariano Rivera went down with a season ending injury, but does that mean that we should all forget about how he is more than a bit injury prone?
