The Nationals, who already have three players who closed for them at different points last season, signed Soriano to a $28 million, two-year contract in January.
He walked into the clubhouse Saturday and received a hug from starting pitcher Gio Gonzalez and a welcome-to-Viera greeting from pitching coach Steve McCatty.
Though he has 132 career saves, this is only the second time the 33-year-old Soriano has come to camp knowing he is expected to be his team's closer.
