      Angels' Geovany Soto: Signs one-year contract with Angels

      Soto signed a one-year deal with the Angels on Tuesday. The Angels were never expected to make a big splash at catcher this offseason, in part because there were no big names available in free agency and they lacked the prospects to acquire one in a trade. Soto slashed .219/.301/.406 with nine home runs and a 30 percent K-rate in 210 plate appearances with the White Sox last season. He will split time with Carlos Perez, and should be seen as a fringe option in two-catcher formats and AL-only leagues.

      Soto filed for free agency Monday, the Chicago Tribune reports. Soto remained healthy for all of 2015, which is something he had not accomplished in recent years. However, he did little at the plate to distinguish himself from starter Tyler Flowers. He should be in the market for a part-time role for 2016.

"He's going to get more time," Robin Ventura told the Chicago Sun-Times. The 32-year-old Soto has hit a bit better than starter Tyler Flowers and could be dangled in trade talks.
