07:59 AM ET 01.11 | For his part, Texas Rangers reliever Joakim Soria would like to start in April, but admits "that's not realistic." [Soria] has targeted late May or early June for a return to the big leagues following the second Tommy John surgery of his career. Soria, appearing at a fan event sponsored by ESPN Deportes 1540 AM in Dallas on Thursday, said he's throwing out to 120 feet and feels good. He does not know when he might get on a mound. Soria, a two-time All-Star with 160 career saves with the Kansas City Royals, had surgery last April and the usual recovery time is 12 to 18 months. ... [Said Soria:] "I'm still looking at late May, but it's probably more like the first few days of June."

Interesting how he has a job after a second Tommy John procedure yet Brian Wilson doesn't.

You're back to square one anyways when you've had two elbow surgeries.
