ESPN reports that Kansas City reliever Joakim Soria has the Yankees on his no-trade list.
This does not mean the Yankees could not pull off a trade for the 26-year-old closer. It just makes things a little more difficult. For me, though, Soria is worth pursuing. He’s a terrific young closer, and would be an upgrade over Joba Chamberlain — even if it costs the Yankees Chamberlain to get him.
