The Tigers bullpen sure has its fair share of problems, however, Soria has been dynamite filling in for injured closer Joe Nathan.

Soria is 11-for-11 in save opportunities and has also picked up two victories. Since April 12, Soria has allowed just one run. In his last 12 1/3 innings, the right-hander has yielded just four hits and two walks while striking out nine batters.

He is 2-0 with a 1.29 ERA, 0.57 WHIP and 11 strikeouts in 14 innings this season. At this point, it is hard to find a better waiver wire pickup through the first month and a half.
