Alfonso Soriano remains hot at the plate since trade to Yankees

When Alfonso Soriano was with the Chicago Cubs, everybody felt that he was not living up to his potential. But he was happy playing in the Windy City.

Playing on a losing team, even the top players sometimes can’t play up to their own standards more less those of fans and the media.

Since his return to the New York Yankees in a trade recently, he has eight home runs with 26 RBI’s, 18 in his past four games with 13 hits and has won several games with his bat.

Soriano always said he liked playing for the Yankees and never wanted to be traded to Texas in 2004 by New York.

Friday night in a 10-3 waxing of the Boston Red Sox, Soriano collected four RBI’s as the Yankees won for the fifth time in six games.

There is no doubt the the New York Yankees have missed SS Derek Jeter and 3B Alex Rodriguez all season long.

Even without those two key players, the team has stayed in the American League East race which is basically wide-open for anyone to win.

That might be the reason they reinstated the 39-year-old Jeter to the active roster after a short stint in the minors.

The popular Jeter, spent just four games on his rehab assignment and was recalled to play Thursday against the Kansas City Royals.

It was his 2013 debut and the first first game he had played since last October 13 when he fractured his left ankle.

The long-time Yankees captain has another injury setback to deal with this time.

As the New York DH on Thursday, he ran out a ground ball during his third at bat in the fifth inning and will miss more action.

It was reported that Jeter suffered a Grade 1 strain of his right quadriceps muscle.

Jeter made a statement after the injury and is very diasppointed, obviously.

“It’s frustrating. I don’t know what else you want me to say. I worked hard to get to the point of rejoining the team yesterday. It’s not how you draw it up, but hopefully I’ll be back out there soon and help this team win some games.”

There is no timetable for his return to action.
