However, unlike Sabathia Soriano is unlikely to exercise his clause, according to Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York.
This comes as no surprise as Soriano was ineffective over the early part of the season and missed a significant portion with an elbow injury as well. So he is highly unlikely to top the two-years and $25 million that he has left under his contract with the Yankees.
Of course, he can opt-out again next year which would probably be a bit smarter for him as Mariano Rivera is expected retire after the 2012 season. That could potentially put him in position to get even more money out of the Yankees if there is an injury to or just regression from David Robertson.
