Nationals | Rafael Soriano unlikely to pitch

Updating a previous report, Washington Nationals RP Rafael Soriano is unlikely to pitch in a save situation Friday, April 12, after pitching in each of the last three games. Manager Davey Johnson had yet to talk to Soriano, but it appears he's leaning toward resting his closer Friday. RP Drew Storen is expected to get the nod if a save situation arises. Soriano didn't pitch much this spring, and he tossed 24 pitches last night and a total of 57 during the series with the Chicago White Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure you get Storen in your lineups if you own him in deep mixed leagues or NL-onlys. The Nationals definitely don't want to overwork Soriano so early in the season, so bank on him not appearing in a save sitch tonight.
