Chicago Cubs OF Alfonso Soriano said he doesn't want to be rested frequently, especially after the team signed OF Scott Hairston, who could possibly be used to give Soriano more breathers throughout the season. "That's what they said to me last year, and I played a lot of games," said Soriano, who hit 32 home runs and drove in 108 runs in 151 games, his highest number of games played since joining the Cubs in 2007. "This year, I'm ready to play every day. I don't like to have a day off. I know I'm 37 years old, but I don't feel like it. I feel like I'm 25, 26, and that's what I want to do is play every day to win." Hairston could wind up in a platoon with OF Nate Schierholtz in right field.
