Angels' Geovany Soto: Out of the lineup Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Geovany Soto is out of the lineup Wednesday against the A's, Pedro Moura of the LA Times reports.

Soto has been off to a strong start at the plate, but is still getting less playing time than Carlos Perez, who will replace him in the lineup Wednesday. The 33-year-old hasn't played more than 100 games in a season since 2011 and has played just 156 total games in the past three seasons combined. If he can stay healthy, Soto could launch himself into the bigger part of the team's catcher rotation.

Angels' Geovany Soto: Hits go-ahead homer in ninth
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Geovany Soto went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 5-4 win at Oakland.

Soto's two-run shot off closer Sean Doolittle gave the Los Angeles Angels the lead in the ninth, raising his average to an even .300 in the process. He has been on the short end of a timeshare with Carlos Perez behind the plate, but a few more clutch performances like this one could lead to the Angels reconsidering their playing time distribution, especially with Perez struggling at the plate early.

Angels' Geovany Soto: Making first start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Geovany Soto will make his first start of the season Thursday against the Rangers, catching and batting eighth, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

Soto acted as the backup catcher to Carlos Perez for the first two games of the season, but Soto will get his chance to start for the first time Thursday. After a tough season last year, expectations shouldn't be too high for the veteran catcher, but he did post a .780 OPS against left-handed pitching last season, which could help him out Thursday night with lefty Derek Holland on the mound for Texas.

Angels' Geovany Soto: Will not start Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Soto is not in the Angels' Opening Day lineup.

This doesn't come as much of a surprise, as Carlos Perez has been deemed the starting catcher. However, Soto will see starts over the course of the season and could earn more playing time if he can find his stroke offensively.

Angels' Geovany Soto: Showing power and patience this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Geovany Soto has hit three home runs and drawn six walks in just 12 games during Cactus League play.

Soto missed some time behind the plate this spring because of arm fatigue, but the injury was never expected to cost him significant time. Soto should see an increase in playing time behind Carlos Perez this season, but the 53 games he started for the White Sox last year was his highest total since 2012, so it seems unrealistic to expect that he will play enough to be a viable option in standard mixed leagues.
