Geovany Soto heads back to DL with groin injury
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

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

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.

Fantasy Analysis | 1405724159
Geovany Soto a sleeper at catcher
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

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.
