The Diamondbacks gave Soria a one-year, $3.5 million deal after his successful stint with the A's. Soria fixed his home run problem from 2019, which was an outlier for his career anyway, and his 2020 numbers looked much more in line with his typical output. Soria hasn't been named the closer, but given that he has totaled at least 16 saves in eight separate seasons, it's a strong bet that he'll begin the year in the ninth inning. The Diamondbacks aren't expected to be competitive, so if you do draft him, bank on him being traded to another team, and into another role, by mid-season.

Joakim Soria agrees to one-year deal with Arizona

Relief pitcher Joakim Soria has agreed to a one-year deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Impact

The closer role is still wide open for the Diamondbacks, so Soria has a chance to step into that role after posting a 2.82 ERA with 24 strikeouts across 22 1/3 innings with Oakland in last year's shortened season. Soria had initially been linked with the Mariners, but the competition for the closer role is a little less crowded down in Arizona.
