Soria will undergo surgery April 3 and it will take about 12-18 months to recover, meaning he will miss the entire 2012 season and possibly the start of the 2013 season.

Soria has had a spectacular career with the Royals going from a zero to a hero closer in 2007 and saving 160 games with a 2.40 ERA and 341 strikeouts in 315 innings over five seasons. Last season he had a 4.03 ERA with 60 strikeouts.
