Soriano Sighting

Took in the Aquasox game on Saturday and was surprised to see Rafael Sorianon making a rehab start for the M's Rookie League affiliate. RS was dominant in the first, looking like a major league ready guy pitching against 18 and 19 year olds. In the second though he gave up a long double and a couple of singles eventually giving up two runs, one unearned on a bizarre error/interference play, before calling it night after two innings. Not the best results actually, but his fastball had some pop and he threw a lot of strikes...

The ASox scored 12 runs so naturally everyone looked like a solid prospect, but I was especially impressed with Luis Valbuena who had two homeruns and first sacker Reed Eastley who had three hits. I was also surprised to see Casey Craig in Everett. After starting the year hurt, I thought he had gone to Inland Empire. I wonder if the club has something they want him to work on or if he is just a victim of the M's logjam at middle infield.
