About this Article

With all the talk of trades in the air, Alfonso Soriano was in the starting lineup for the Cubs Tuesday night in Arizona. Soriano has 10-and-5 rights and can veto any trade involving him. Reports of a trade for Soriano to the Yankees were labeled premature. "I saw the news and got surprised," Soriano was quoted as saying. "My agent told me the Yankees just called, but it's nothing serious and it's nothing close."
