Insight: Soto won't be back until June at the earliest. If Texas decides to play it safe, he could be out until the All-Star break. J.P. Arencibia will see as many at bats as he can handle in the meantime.
 
3/24/2014 12:18:00 PM
Description: Texas catcher Geovany Soto has a torn lateral meniscus in his right knee, according to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram
Insight: The plan was for Soto to split time behind the plate with J.P. Arencibia (.194, 21 HR, 55 RBI in 2013), but now it will be Arencibia backed up by Robinson Chirinos for the next 10-to-12 weeks.

Description: Texas catcher Geovany Soto has a torn lateral meniscus of the right knee, according to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram
Insight: The plan was for Soto to split time behind the plate with J.P. Arencibia (.194, 21 HR, 55 RBI in 2013), but now it will be Arencibia backed up by Robinson Chirinos for the next 2-3 months.
 
2/22/2014 12:01:00 PM
Description: Rangers catcher Geovany Soto will have arthroscopic surgery on his left foot on Saturday, according to Anthony Andro of Fox Sports Southwest.
Insight: Soto is expected to sit for three weeks before resuming spring training work. He batted .245 with nine homers and 22 RBI in 54 games last season.
 
11/5/2013 8:33:00 PM
Description: The Rangers and catcher Geovany Soto have agreed to a one-year, $3.05 million contract. SOURCE: Richard Durrett, ESPN Dallas
Insight: Soto hit .245 with nine homers and 22 RBI in a part-time roll with Texas in 2013. He could be the team's Opening Day starter if the Rangers are unable to retain A.J. Pierzynski in free agency.
 
5/24/2013 10:02:00 AM
Description: Texas catcher Geovany Soto could get a start on Friday against Seattle starter Joe Saunders as he's a career 4-for-6 with a double and a home run against the left-hander.
Insight: Soto is 5-for-12 in his last three starts with a pair of homers. Everyday starter A.J. Pierzynski is just 4-for-16 versus Saunders.
 
12/3/2012 11:48:00 AM
Description: Jon Heyman from CBS Sports reports catcher Geovany Soto and the Rangers have reached terms on a new one-year, $3 million contract.
Insight: With Mike Napoli headed to Boston, Soto is expected to start behind home plate for the Rangers next season. Soto's production has dropped off considerably over the past few seasons so we're not optimistic about his fantasy prospects heading into the 2013 campaign.
 
12/1/2012 5:59:00 PM
Description: The Rangers and catcher Geovany Soto weren't able to get a deal done before Friday night's non-tender deadline. Soto is now officially a free agent.
Insight: Soto had a dismal season in 2012 (.198, 11 HR, 39 RBI). He's off the fantasy radar.
 
8/29/2012 7:04:00 PM
Description: Texas catcher Geovany Soto will sit out Wednesday's game against the Rays.
Insight: Soto is hitting .247 with two homers and 12 RBI in 21 games since coming over from Chicago at last month's trade deadline.
 
7/22/2012 2:00:00 PM
Description: Cubs catcher Geovany Soto won't be in the lineup Sunday when Chicago takes on St. Louis.
Insight: Soto's average has been below .200 since mid-April and at this point he's just far too inconsistent to warrant a spot on any fantasy rosters.
 
7/20/2012 4:04:00 PM
Description: Cubs catcher Geovany Soto is not in the starting lineup for Friday's game against St. Louis.
Insight: Soto has batted .300 over his last six games to raise his average to .191. Whatever happened to the catcher with the .800-plus OPS? At this point Soto has little fantasy value.
 
7/19/2012 1:59:00 PM
Description: Cubs catcher Geovany Soto is just 2-13 (.154) in his career against Thursday's starting pitcher, Miami Marlins lefthander Mark Buehrle.
Insight: We're thinking Thursday would be a good day to sit Soto, who is hitting just .194 this season with 6 HRs and 13 RBIs.
 
7/2/2012 7:05:00 PM
Description: Chicago catcher Geovany Soto is not in the starting lineup for Monday night's matchup with the Braves.
Insight: Soto continues to disappoint fantasy owners with his meager batting average (.168) and underwhelming power numbers (five homers, nine RBIs in 37 games).
 
6/20/2012 7:49:00 PM
Description: Chicago catcher Geovany Soto is not in the starting lineup Wednesday night for the Cubs' series finale against the White Sox.
Insight: Soto (.168, 4 HRs, 7 RBIs) is 2-8 with a homer since coming off the DL on Monday.
 
6/18/2012 6:53:00 PM
Description: Cubs catcher Geovany Soto has been activated from the 15-day DL. Soto was out for a month with a partially torn meniscus in his left knee. He's starting at catcher and batting eighth Monday night against the White Sox.
Insight: Soto's return probably won't have much impact on the fantasy scene: he's owned in just 13.5 percent of fantasy leagues heading into today's action.
 
5/18/2012 12:59:00 PM
Description: Cubs catcher Geovany Soto is expected to be placed on the 15-day disabled list with a slightly torn meniscus in left knee.
Insight: Soto has been horrible for most of the season (.161, 3 HR, 6 RBI) and likely wasn't in any fantasy lineups anyway. With backup Steve Clevenger (oblique) also sidelined, the catching chores will fall to Wellington Castillo (.208, 1 HR, 4 RBI).
 
Cold5/4/2012 10:36:00 AM
Description: Cubs catcher Geovany Soto is hitless in nine at-bats against Dodgers starter Chad Billingsley with four strikeouts.
Insight: Soto hasn't done anything this season (.161, 2 HR, 3 RBI), but his backup Steve Clevenger is on the disabled list so it doesn't leave many options for manager Dale Sveum. The fantasy owner, however, should have a number of better choices.
 
4/29/2012 11:10:00 AM
Description: Cubs catcher Geovany Soto is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against Philadelphia.
Insight: Soto hasn't done anything to make him worthy of fantasy ownership in any format this season (.135, 1 HR, 1 RBI). Backup Steve Clevenger has been much more productive with the bat, going 11-for-22 (.500) in limited action.
 
4/28/2012 7:18:00 PM
Description: Geovany Soto missed Saturday's game against the Phillies because of a sore back.
Insight: Soto hasn't done anything to make him worthy of fantasy ownership in any format this season (.135, 1 HR, 1 RBI). The Cubs catcher is officially listed as "day-to-day."
 
4/25/2012 10:53:00 AM
Description: Cubs catcher Geovany Soto is not in Wednesday's lineup. He's not injured, just getting a day off after a night game. Steve Clevenger, who is hitting .526 (10-for-19) this season, will start behind the plate.
Insight: Soto continues to struggle with the bat, hitting just .140 with a .464 OPS. At the moment, Clevenger is the better fantasy option.
