Hometown: Boca Chica, DR DOB: Dec. 31

Started his professional career as an infielder, but the Colorado Rockies saw some potential as an outfielder after signing him as a 16-year-old free agent. After debuting in the Dominican Summer League in 2009, he began splitting time between infield and outfield in 2010. Last season in the DSL, he spent most of his time in the outfield and hit .354 in 66 games, stealing 27 bases with a .420 on base percentage. His outfield abilitites have been evident over the last three games, as Soriano has made two highlight-reel catches and gunned down a runner at third from right field.
