by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/28/2015) White Sox catcher Geovany Soto reached base safely in all five plate-appearances in Tuesday's 9-4 win over the Red Sox. The veteran backstop went 2 for 2 with three RBI, two runs scored and three walks in the game. 

Soto ripped a two-run double as part of a five-run first inning. He later chipped in a solo home run in the seventh. It was his seventh big fly of the season. 

Soto has been a productive player this season, despite getting partial playing time. Over his last 10 games--five starts--Soto is batting .375 with three home runs and five RBI.

White Sox C Tyler Flowers: 'It's my job to lose' behind the plate


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/24/2015) White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers told reporters he doesn't plan on giving up his starting job easily, per MLB.com. On Thursday, Geovany Soto signed a minor-league deal with an invite to spring training.

"I really don't think there's much of a question going in there," Flowers said. "I would definitely say it's my job to lose. Barring an injury, there's really no doubt I'll be the guy catching opening day."

Flowers avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year deal, worth $2.675 million for this season. The 28-year-old hit .241/.297/.396 with 15 homers and 50 RBI over 407 at-bats in 2014.

"At this point, there's no reason to move off of that," general manager Rick Hahn said. "Competition is good. It brings out the best in people. And if someone comes in and fights for that job and earns it, I'm sure we'll be flexible. But certainly, we view Tyler as the starter."
