Soriano reportedly claimed by Twins

The Minnesota Twins have claimed second baseman Alfonso Soriano off waivers, according to a report in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
The report states the Twins claimed Soriano to block a trade to another team and the clubs do not expect to make a deal.

Last month, the Rangers and the Twins talked about Soriano before the July 31 trade deadline but could not come to an agreement because the Rangers reportedly wanted highly touted Minor League pitcher Francisco Liriano and the Twins were not willing to part with him.

The Rangers and the Twins have 48 hours to work out a deal. Should the clubs not come to an agreement by Monday, the Rangers can pull him back or let him go to the Twins. If he is pulled back, Soriano cannot be traded for the rest of the season.

Soriano entered play Sunday hitting .282 with 30 home runs and 84 RBIs.

This story was not subject to the approval of Major League Baseball or its clubs.

This line says it all, just trying to keep another team from getting a leg up on them.
