Yankees | Rafael Soriano opting out

New York Yankees RP Rafael Soriano will opt out of the final year of his contract. The final year of his deal calls for him to make $14 million in 2013, but if he opts out, he gets $1.5 million, which combined with the $13.3-million qualifying offer would guarantee him at least $14.8 million. So that would be an $800,000 raise. Soriano is believed to be seeking a four-year deal. The Yankees are likely only willing to give him a two-year deal.
