Alfonso Soriano went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in Friday's loss to the Red Sox.

Soriano was a little slow to get going this season, but he has three multi-hit games in his last five and four extra-base hits (including two home runs and three RBI) over his last four. We're not expecting a high batting average, but the 38-year-old is in good situation from a power perspective.

Alfonso Soriano went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in Tuesday's loss to the Orioles.

It was his first home run of the season. Soriano went 0-for-16 to begin the season, but he has hit safely in each of his last three games. While he's unlikely to match what he did during the second half last year, he should still provide some cheap pop and double-digit steals for fantasy owners this year.

Alfonso Soriano had a three-run homer and an RBI single in the Yankees' 8-1 defeat of the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Soriano had a .200/.238/.200 line in 20 at-bats this spring before busting out today. It looks like the plan is for him to sixth in the Yankees lineup behind Brian McCann and Mark Teixeira. That's not a recipe for great run and RBI numbers, but he should be a nice source of homers once again.

Alfonso Soriano (flu) hopes to return to Grapefruit League action on Wednesday.

Soriano came down with a case of the flu over the weekend, but he was back at the Yankees' spring training complex on Monday morning for some light work and shouldn't fall too far behind his teammates.

Alfonso Soriano (flu) has been scratched from the Yankees' trip to Dunedin Sunday.

Soriano was originally on the travel list despite thoughts that he wouldn't be ready to play, so little changes except the outfielder's plans for the day. The illness has kept him from participating in camp thus far, but his readiness for Opening Day is still not much of a concern. He should be back on the field sooner than later.

Alfonso Soriano (flu) is on the Yankees travel list for Sunday's game against the Blue Jays, but doesn't believe that he'll be able to play just yet.

Soriano is battling a rough bout of the flu that has limited him throughout the early portion of spring training. He was able to take batting practice on Saturday, but still appears to be a few days away from game action.

Alfonso Soriano (flu) is scheduled to make his spring debut on Sunday.

Soriano has been limited early on this spring while battling the flu, so the Yankees are easing him into game action. The 38-year-old amassed 34 home runs and 101 RBI last season and is entering the final year of a nine-year, $136 million contract.

Daniel Barbarisi of the Wall Street Journal reports that Alfonso Soriano has still yet to participate in activities this spring as he's battling a nasty bout of the flu.

The veteran outfielder will be re-evaluated on Monday. He still has plenty of time to get healthy and ready to go for the start of the regular season, so the illness shouldn't have any effect on his draft stock.

Alfonso Soriano indicated earlier this week that whether he continues his playing career next season will depend on his health.

"It depends on how I feel,'' Soriano said. "If I am healthy I will play [in 2015]. If not, I will let it go. It depends how I feel.'' Soriano will turn 39 in July, but he appears to have something left in the tank given that he's coming off back-to-back, 30-homer, 100-RBI seasons. He is in the final year of a nine-year, $136 million contract.
