The Mariners (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/clubhouse?team=sea) found a way to prop up a pitching rotation in desperate need of help, agreeing to trade hard-throwing reliever Rafael Soriano (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/profile?statsId=6662) to Atlanta (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/clubhouse?team=atl) for left-hander Horacio Ramirez (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/profile?statsId=6889), several media outlets reported Wednesday.

This trade could be either a wash or a steal for the Braves, if Soriano can recover mentally from the line drive. He has excellent ability. Ramirez has been injury-prone, which is not good for a young lefty.

When healthy, Soriano has some nasty stuff. Good pick up by Atlanta...

How is Soriano recovering from that head injury?

This can be a trade that can work out well for both sides if both guys perform to their full potential. This will be a plus for Seattle's rotation, and Soriano will be a good addition to the Braves' awful bullpen. Hopefully he can recover mentally from the line drive he took to the head. If Billy Wagner could do it, hopefully he can too.

Interesting trade here I believe. I think both kdis still have a lot of potential but obviously Soriano has more but that injury looked brutal. It's probably all going to be mental with Soriano though, if he can regain confidence he should be a stud. As for Ramierez he will become an adequate #3 or #4 starter which is never a bad thing to have. But if you are the Mariners you need #1 and #2 starters.
