Angels' Geovany Soto: Signs one-year contract with Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Geovany Soto signed a one-year deal with the Los Angeles 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.

Geovany Soto: Files for free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Geovany 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.

White Sox catcher Geovany Soto returns to lineup Wednesday
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

White Sox catcher Geovany Soto is back in the starting lineup, batting ninth while playing behind the plate, according to Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune

Soto is having a rough September, going 3 for 26 at the plate, which has dropped his season average to .227. Neither he nor Tyler Flowers has done much to separate themselves from the other and will continue to split time down the stretch.

White Sox C Geovany Soto perfect at the plate on Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

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.

Ventura vows more playing time for White Sox C Geovany Soto
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

White Sox catcher Geovany Soto, who has made 19 of his 35 starts this season with Jeff Samardzija on the mound, will be receiving more frequent starts.

"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. He owns a decent slash line of .241/.313/.448.
