Braves Acquire Rafael Soriano

If it wasn't already, the Gonzalez-LaRoche deal is completely DOA now.

A major-league front-office source confirmed that a deal to bring Ramirez to Seattle, in exchange for relief pitcher Rafael Soriano, has been agreed to and that all that remains is the announcement.

"There were physicals, but they're all done and it's going through," the source said.

With Soriano in the fold, the Braves don't need Gonzalez nearly so badly.
