Soriano trade to Yankees: Bronx Bombers need some pop for playoff push
Soriano trade: The New York Yankees will reportedly send a minor league pitcher to the Cubs in exchange for once and future Yankee Alfonso Soriano.
Less than one week from Major League Baseball's non-waiver trading deadline on July 31, multiple media reports have Alfonso Soriano being traded by the Chicago Cubs back to the New York Yankees, the club the power hitting outfielder began his big league career with in 1999.
Soriano is currently batting .254 with 17 home runs and 51 runs batted in. His offense is the big reason the Yankees wanted Soriano back.
