Alfonso Soriano said Friday that he hasn't been put on waivers yet.

And whether that's an indication of how tough it might be to find a trade market for him this month, Soriano said he's in ''no rush'' to be traded, a process that requires his consent.

''It's 50-50 right now for going or staying,'' said Soriano, who is sure at some point this month to be put on 48-hour waivers and will almost certainly clear because of the $42 million left on his contract.

''I feel comfortable here. The only thing that makes me [consider] going to another team [is the chance to win]. But I'm in no rush. I feel comfortable [in Chicago], but the only negative thing now is losing and that they look like they want to build a young team. We'll see what happens.''
