Geovany Soto activated from DL


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) Rangers catcher Geovany Soto was activated from the disabled list, as expected Friday, after overcoming a groin injury. Soto was 6 for 17 with one home run in five rehab games at Triple-A Round Rock.  

Rangers appear destined to split catching duties


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) The return of  Geovany Soto off the disabled list Friday will result in less playing time for emerging Rangers catcher Robinson Chirinos, whose 11 home runs ranks second on the team. The two will split the duties.

"We've got to see what Soto can do," Ron Washington told MLB.com. "It's not going to take away tremendous time from Robinson; he is still going to get time. But it will take some time away from him."

Injuries have limited Soto to just 11 at-bats this season.


Geovany Soto begins rehab assignment


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/2/2014) Rangers catcher Geovany Soto started behind the plate for Triple-A Round Rock Friday, as he continues his recovery from a groin injury.

Soto began his rehab assignment with a 1-for-2 performance Friday which included a walk. He is expected to spend most of the next week on assignment, before making his scheduled return to the majors Aug. 8. 


Geovany Soto to begin rehab Friday, return Aug. 8


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) Rangers catcher Geovany Soto expects to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Round Rock Friday and return to the team the following Friday, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Soto was placed on the disabled list last week with a groin injury. He has made just three appearances with the Rangers this season, going 4 for 11 at the plate.


Geovany Soto heads back to DL with groin injury


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2014) The Rangers placed catcher Geovany Soto on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right groin Tuesday, the team announced.

Soto was removed from Monday's game as a result of the injury, and goes back on the DL less than a week after he recovered from a knee injury. Soto has appeared in just three games this season, as he underwent surgery on his right knee just before the start of the season. 


Geovany Soto suffers groin tightness Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) Rangers catcher Geovany Soto was removed from Monday's game after suffering tightness in his right groin while scoring a run in the sixth inning.

Soto knocked an RBI single in the sixth inning and came around to score two singles later, but he had to come out of the game after limping across home plate. He was 2 for 3 in his third game of the season Monday after missing the first half with a knee injury.


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.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/17/2014) Rangers catcher Geovany Soto has been activated from the disabled list Thursday.

Report: Geovany Soto arrested for misdemeanor


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Geovany Soto should return after All-Star break


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

"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."

Soto began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Round Rock Friday. He has been sidelined for the entirety of the regular season.

At this point, he hopes to be back around the All-Star break, in the middle of July.

Rangers seeking depth at second, catcher


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2014) The Rangers are seeking depth at second base and catcher, according to FoxSports.com.

Both Geovany Soto and Jurickson Profar have gone down in recent days, leaving the club a little thin at some key spots. J.P. Arencibia and Kensuke Tanaka are currently slated to open the year at each spot, though the team does have infielder Rougned Odor in the minors. The Rangers have playoff aspirations this season, so it's not a surprise to see them express some urgency at both positions.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
