Well, hardly ever.
He does make too much sense that the Jays would be interested. They really don't have many relievers that they have any faith in. Soriano had a 3.19 ERA for the Nationals, last year, even if he had a rough second half, putting up a 6.48 ERA and allowing batters to hit .305/.359/.505. And he blew 5 saves over the last 3 months of the season.
