7/31 Soriano stays
Teams did inquire about Alfonso Soriano prior to Tuesday’s Trade Deadline but the Cubs weren’t able to find a good match. Soriano, 36, has veto power over any deal.
“We had some interest,” GM Jed Hoyer said. “You should have interest — he’s having a hell of a year.”
Soriano entered Tuesday’s game one home run shy of 20, and the only left fielder to handle at least 150 total chances without an error this year.
