Jose Soriano Returns to Angels

The Los Angeles Angels announced on Sunday afternoon that they have received Jose Soriano back from the Pittsburgh Pirates. He was the top pick in the Rule 5 draft last winter, but he injured his elbow again while rehabbing from Tommy John surgery. He required a second TJ surgery, which comes with a longer return time. The 23-year-old Soriano is out for the 2022 season. He was designated for assignment when the Pirates added infielder Diego Castillo to the 40-man roster last week.
