Soriano Out with Dislocated Finger

WASHINGTON (AP) - Chicago Cubs left fielder Alfonso Soriano says
he dislocated a finger and isn't sure when he'll return to the lineup.

Soriano was scratched for Friday night's game at Washington because of a swollen right pinkie.

The leadoff man said he got hurt Thursday night when he was thrown out diving into first base during a 6-2 win over the Nationals.

Cubs manager Lou Piniella said he thought Soriano's finger would need more than a day to heal.
