Chicago Cubs outfielder Alfonso Soriano made his long-awaited arrival today and raised more than a few questions about his status for 2010. He says that his surgically repaired left knee is “maybe 80 percent or 85 percent.”

But, he didn’t stop there. If you were expecting a big comeback season for Soriano, it sounds like you may not get it. We know that he physically he says he’s not ready, but we imagine his brain is focused and ready get back out there.

“Mentally I don’t feel 100 percent,” he said. “But we’ll see in how my knee is running in the field and doing some stuff I didn’t do in the Dominican.”

Eh….really?

***slides him farther down draft board***

Soriano hit .241 last year with 20 home runs, but was battling through pain. Looks like he still is. Draft him accordingly.
