Geovany Soto heads back to DL with groin injury

Geovany Soto suffers groin tightness Monday

Geovany Soto a sleeper at catcher


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/18/2014) When the Rangers activated Geovany Soto from the DL Thursday, they added another potential mixed-leaguer to the catcher pool.

Prior to tearing his meniscus in March, Soto was a sleeper drafted in about the same range as Devin Mesoraco and Dioner Navarro. Granted, he's much more likely to go the way of Navarro than Mesoraco, but as a former mainstay getting a shot at regular at-bats again, he's interesting in formats that go deep into the catcher pool, as standard CBSSports.com Rotisserie leagues do.

Nobody's expecting him to replicate the .868 OPS he had as a rookie in 2008 or the .890 OPS he compiled two years later, but even the .794 mark he put together last year would make him useful to an owner trying to scrape by with ... well, with someone like Navarro. And he finished the season on a high note, hitting .323 (20 for 62) with five homers and a 1.028 OPS in his final 21 games.

You should obviously expect some rust at first, and it's not like there's a mad dash to the waiver wire to add Soto right now. But he's worth watching if you play in a league where someone like Navarro matters.

"Really the only physical restriction he's had now for a while is just a deep squat. With a torn meniscus that's really where it's at risk," general manager Jon Daniels said. "Obviously with being a catcher that's every single play of every game, so that's the main thing."
